The Worldview Conference is sponsored by the Christian ministry Revolution Camps in cooperation with Summit Ministries and will be held the weekend of Nov. 4-6 at the Wiens Ranch, 5567 S. Perry Park Rd. The schedule—from 6:30 p.m. Friday to 4 p.m. Sunday—will look like this:
Friday evening Check-in 5:30. At 6:30 we’ll hear a challenge from Randall Niles, a former skeptic turned prolific Christian apologist, followed by entertainment by the famed musical group Cowboys for Jesus. Niles, an attorney and educator who has published hundreds of articles on apologetics and comparative worldviews, is co-founder and director of the popular online resource www.AllAboutGod.com. He will address the fundamental question “Does Truth Exist?”—absolute, unchanging truth in a changing world.
Now, if you like the Flying W Wranglers (or just cowboy and Christian music in general), you’ll love Cowboys for Jesus. In fact, Vern Thompson is a former longtime member of the Wranglers—and his sidekick Joe Stephenson is just one of the best Western fiddlers anywhere. They’re on at 8 to finish the evening.
Saturday Coffee & doughnuts, 8 a.m. At 8:30 John Stonestreet, dynamic speaker and commentator with the Colson Center/BreakPoint and Summit Ministries, will speak on “The Difference a Worldview Makes”–what it is and why it matters–and “Amusing Ourselves to Death,” a look at media, entertainment and the marginalization of God. After lunch Randall Niles addresses the key questions “Does God Really Exist?” and “Is the Bible Really True?”
Then kick back and relax and enjoy a wonderful dinner up the hill at the Wiens home. Afterwards, I will attempt to pull all these issues together to focus on how competing worldviews have impacted the great American Experiment. I’ll explore the meaning of American exceptionalism and how America can be pulled back from the abyss that lies in front of us. How we look at the world affects how we live, compete and survive. How did we become a country that puts more value on what we buy and consume than on what we produce?
Sunday Coffee & doughnuts, 8-8:30. Then we’ll hear from Bill Jack, faculty adviser for the Worldview Academy, an academic leadership program that trains Christian students to think and live in accord with a biblical worldview and to exercise leadership in the culture. His topics include “Creation-Evolution” and “Simple Tools for Brain Surgery” (you’re gonna love this guy) to arm Christians for contending with secularists, atheists and others. We’ll finish mid-afternoon with a question-and-answer session.
