Time Session Speaker Description

10:00 a.m.

ICR Discovery Center opens

10:15 a.m.

“Scientific Evidences for Creation”

Dr. Frank Sherwin

Critics regularly say, “Creation is either something you believe or don’t believe, but there’s no evidence for it.” The case for creation is rooted in what Paul teaches in Romans 1—that God’s work and attributes are “clearly seen.” Dr. Sherwin describes the tools needed to discern objects that have been made (created) vs. objects that form over time through chance and natural processes. He then provides convincing evidence for creation from the microscopic world (bacteria and molecular machines) and the macroscopic world (animals like the bat and woodpecker).

11:15 a.m.

“The Wonderful Oceans”

Dr. Frank Sherwin

Dr. Sherwin discusses the amazing variety of marine life found in venues from tidal pools all the way to crushing ocean depths over five miles down. He also talks about the critical connection between moon-induced tides and weather, and important paths or currents in the oceans mentioned in Scripture (Psalm 8). Finally, he addresses how the volume of water in the oceans relates to the Genesis Flood.

12:00 p.m.

Break for lunch

1:15 p.m.

“Climate Change and the Christian”

Dr. Jake Hebert

Dr. Hebert presents five reasons Christians should not panic over the climate change issue. Both his Ph.D. research and recent ICR seafloor sediment / Ice Age studies are relevant to this hot topic.

2:00 p.m.

Q&A with speakers

2:30 p.m.

Dismiss to exhibit hall and planetarium (additional ticket purchase required).

About This Event

Creation Training Initiative’s Christian Educators’ Conference spans four days and is designed to provide Christian educators with the awareness, knowledge, and importance of Biblical apologetics. This conference intends to equip the next generation with this knowledge so that they can defend their faith and be better prepared to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with confidence.

This conference is intended for Christian educators (private school, Bible study, Sunday school, home school), pastors, or anyone interested in teaching or speaking. The class format includes lectures, exercises, and class participation. In addition, Christian school teachers earn 3.5 CEUs through ACSI towards recertification.

This is a great opportunity to ask questions and learn how to teach your students about creation vs evolution, the sanctity of human life, Critical Race Theory, and how to help them to defend their faith.


The Christian Educators Conference starts at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13th, and concludes at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, June 16th. Please plan to arrive early on Tuesday to check-in between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. You are also welcome to arrive early on Tuesday (starting at 10:00 a.m.) or stay late on Friday (until 5:00 p.m.) to experience the ICR Discovery Center Exhibit Hall (included in your registration) and Planetarium (tickets sold separately).
