In Denver, From Lecture Hall to Family Fellowship

On Oct. 13, I was able to speak at the Colorado Association of Christian Schools Conference in Fort Collins, CO.  I conducted three sessions on the topics of: Dinosaurs and the Bible, Origin of Life and the Glory of God, and New Age and Other False Religions.  It was a great opportunity to be able to influence many lives, by teaching teachers!

While we were in the Denver area, from October 12-17, we also had the opportunity to teach a two hour afternoon session at the Parker Bible Church. We were encouraged to see the enthusiasm as I taught from the book of Genesis.  Many stayed for pizza afterwards and continued to ask questions and discuss the information I had presented.

We were also given the opportunity to conduct a tour at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science for the Parker, CO, homeschool group.  The event was well attended with over 50 students and parents in both the morning and afternoon tours.  It was sad to see how much evolution is presented as fact in the museum, and how many people are led astray by that information.  But, by examining the facts and stripping off the evolutionary bias, many of the exhibits still proclaimed God’s creation and His glory.  It was such a blessing to see so many homeschool families who were extremely eager to hear the truth.

One of the highlights was that we had the opportunity to stay with a wonderful family.  The fellowship was great!  I even had the privilege to do a mini seminar in their home.  I love presenting these personal sessions, because we can do more discipling and answer many personal questions.  We have been presenting in more and more small groups and/or home Bible study groups this year than ever before.  It has been a great blessing!

Local Ministry

Teaching at Bookcliff Christian School

Although a very large part of AOI’s ministry involves traveling to different areas of the United States and the world, there is also a great deal of opportunity for local ministry.

Two days after a month long teaching tour of several states, I was able to do a local museum tour, teaching several families about dinosaurs and the Bible.

On Tuesday, I spent time with a homeschool cooperative teaching kindergartners, first graders, and second graders about what we do and don’t know about dinosaurs, based on the fossil record. I will have the opportunity to spend 2 more sessions with this group, teaching more about dinosaurs and the flood.

Yesterday I taught kindergartners through fourth grade at a Christian school just a few of the many amazing animals which show evidence of an intelligent designer.

This month, I will be sharing with a local campus ministry at Colorado Mesa University (formerly Mesa State College). The following 2 months I will be doing a 5 part Creation series for an adult Sunday school class at the church I attend.

All of the speakers at AOI have similar speaking schedules while at home.

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 2Ti 4:2
