Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Dinosaurs and the Bible
People of all ages are captivated by dinosaurs. Unfortunately, evolutionists use dinosaurs to indoctrinate the young and the old with an earth history that includes millions of years but has no room for the Bible. This presentation will show the power of a person’s starting assumptions (or “worldview”) when interpreting past events, and will define the different types of sciences used in investigating the world around us, with a thorough exploration of these enigmatic lizards. Let’s take dinosaurs to the Bible and see what God’s word has to say about them!

Creation: Why it Matters
Join Scott as he presents a powerful and attention-grabbing presentation on the vital importance of the Bible’s history in Genesis: how it is foundational to the Gospel and relevant to our world and society.  The authority of the Bible is paramount.  Items of scientific evidence are woven into the presentation in a way that is easily understood by the layperson, as is the Gospel message.  Christians are motivated to become armed and equipped to be able to ‘give an answer’ and to be vastly more effective at personal evangelism, thus stimulating church growth.  In addition, their own personal faith is strengthened.  Non-Christians are challenged to see the issues in a different light, and at the same time get salvation-relevant information which an ‘evidence-only’ talk would not provide.

  • Former Vice President of the Creation Society of Sonoma County
  • B.A. in Religious Studies from Oregon State University
Gillis's Bio

Although he committed his life to Christ at the age of 19, Scott was introduced to the relevance of the creation/evolution issue when a friend, who was also a paleontologist, demonstrated to him how scientic evidence made more sense when interpreted in the light of the Bible’s clearly written account of history. This ignited a blaze of desire to get answers to tough questions that had plagued his mind for years. With his own worldview and his relationship to Christ energized, Scott now uses the evidence for Creation to change hearts and minds for Christ with easy-to-understand presentations that uphold the authority of God’s Word. Scott’s desire is to similary equip others to be ready with answers (1 Peter 3:15) to impact their world. Scott developed curriculum and teaches an eight week interactive, academic apologetics course aimed toward High School and College age students.

Scott holds a B.A. in Religious Studies from Oregon State University and was the Vice President of the Creation Society of Sonoma County. Before joining CMI full-time, he served in various capacities for over 25 years as a youth pastor, council member,teacher, speaker, and was a key leader on a church plant team launching one of the newest fellowships in his region.

Scott recently relocated from Northern California to Atlanta, GA with his wife, Lisa, to work full-time for Creation Ministries International (US). They have 4 adult children.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Scott Gillis and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
