Session 1: Already Gone: The Battle for the Next Generation—Why World View Matters to the Church

Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium

Nationwide polls and denominational reports are showing that the next generation is calling it quits on the traditional church. And it’s not just happening on the nominal fringe; it’s happening at the core of the faith.

In the first scientific study of its kind, the “Beemer Report” reveals startling facts discovered through 20,000 phone calls and detailed surveys of a thousand 20–29 year olds who used to attend evangelical churches on a regular basis, but have since left it behind.

The results are shocking:

  • Those who faithfully attend Sunday school are more likely to leave the church than those who do not.
  • Those who regularly attend Sunday school are more likely to believe that the Bible is less true.
  • Those who regularly attend Sunday school are actually more likely to defend that abortion and gay marriage should be legal.
  • Those who regularly attend Sunday school are actually more likely to defend premarital sex.

Ken Ham reveals trends that must be dealt with now . . . before we lose another generation!

The trends are frightening, but Already Gone shows how to win back our families, our churches and our world!

Session 2: A Clear and Present Danger—BioLogos and the New Creation Story

Rodeheaver Auditorium

How does the lens of theistic evolution affect the biblical narrative? What is BioLogos and what is it doing to influence pastors, churches and Christian schools? The church must understand that the BioLogos position is a dangerous affront not only to the biblical account of creation, but also to the authority of Scripture.

9:35–10:45 a.m.

Session 3: The Age of the Earth and the Decline of the Church

Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium

Today, most Bible colleges, seminaries, Christian schools—even parts of the homeschool movement—do not accept the first eleven chapters of Genesis as literal history. Many teachers try to convince those who sit under their tutelage that Genesis is symbolic, or that somehow millions of years can be fit in, and that God really did use evolution to create the universe. Get the facts, discover God's truth, and help bring a new reformation to the Church by helping to call it back to the authority of God's Word.

Session 4: The Importance of the Historical Adam

Rodeheaver Auditorium

The historicity of Genesis used to be questioned only by liberal theologians. Recently, in order to accommodate a majority opinion on human origins, several evangelical scholars are proposing alternate ways of reading Genesis that eliminate a literal Adam and Eve. But what are the broader biblical and theological consequences of such a view?

Layton Talbert
Speaker: Layton Talbert

Session 5: Evangelical Christianity and the Loss of Biblical Creationism

Rodeheaver Auditorium

The Scopes “Monkey” Trial in 1925 cast a shadow of doubt regarding the authenticity of biblical creationism in the minds of Christians and non-Christians alike. In an effort to regain favor with the culture, Evangelical Christianity adapted evolutionary theory to biblical reality. The results have weakened the foundation of our families, our churches and our society.

Break


3–4:15 p.m.

Session 6: Science, Scripture and the Church: Equipping the Next Generation for the Battle

Rodeheaver Auditorium

The Bible itself views science as an inspiration and a revelation, not as a threat. We must equip the next generation to declare God's glory, not merely to defend it.

Bill Lovegrove
Speaker: Bill Lovegrove

Session 7: Biblical Creation and Christian Higher Education

Rodeheaver Auditorium

Entering college today as a Christian is like beginning a journey through a moral and spiritual mine field. This is the time of life when one's faith, worldview and life's direction are going to be strengthened and solidified or damaged and destroyed. That is why a biblically grounded higher education has never been more crucial. Young people today need a vibrant understanding of God's Word as they develop skills honed with precision in a liberal arts curriculum—skills of critical thinking, effective communcation, relationship-building and problem-solving. Christian higher education is at heart intensified disciple-making for the purpose of reaching the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
