Discover Creation Training Institute Overview




“But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.”

What is Discover Creation Training Institute (DCTI)?

Alpha Omega Institute’s DCTI is a specialized 1-year training program designed to fortify students with a creation-based Biblical worldview with an emphasis on applied apologetics and personal discipleship. Our goal is to create a community of learners, serious about growing in their own knowledge and relationship with the Lord and defending and sharing their faith with others. It is a unique opportunity which includes many exciting field trips and practical ministry outreach. DCTI is designed to help individuals:

    • Transition from high school to college.

    • Gain a “breath of fresh air” from their current college or workplace.

    • Receive specialized training in creation ministry and evangelism.



“After 30 years of personal experience teaching creation at churches and universities, I can affirm that the number one reason students give for rejecting the Gospel is evolution.  The evolutionary naturalistic worldview that permeates our culture is a primary factor that 'Christian' students give for rejecting their faith. Students need truthful answers, supportive relationships, and practical experience to stand firmly and make a difference.”  -- Dave Nutting, Founder and Director, Alpha Omega Institute


Goals of DCTI

  • To encourage students to think and reason so they can cement a Biblical Worldview as the foundation for their lives.

  • To “fire-proof” students so they can stand firmly in their faith.

  • To help already “shell-shocked” students connect their hearts and minds in faith.

  • To challenge and disciple students to find their own God-directed passion and purpose.

  • To provide students with practical ministry experience.
  • To equip and empower students to impact classmates and others with “gentleness and reverence."
