Statistically, 75% of young people with a Christian background who enroll at university stop going to church. For any army to lose three quarters of its forces is catastrophic.
The Biblical Worldview Summit practically prepares students to deal with the issues, temptations and pressures of university. The Summit equips students with the facts and the skills they need to deal with Humanism and Evolutionism. The Summit applies the Lordship of Christ to all areas of life.
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may approve what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." Romans 12:2
The Summit is a crash-course to enable students to understand and articulate the Christian worldview, to enable you to answer the toughest questions and to equip you with the skills and the confidence you need to respond to every challenge to your Christian faith.
Tombstones of Seminars
The need for thoroughly Biblical and practical training for ministers and missionaries is essential.
The Seven Tombstones of Theological Seminaries have been identified as:
1. The Bible
The Bible is the most translated book in all of history (the whole Bible has been translated into over 540 languages and 2,890 languages have had at least some portion of the Bible). The Bible is the number one best-selling book in all of history (over 3 billion copies). It is the most widely read book in the world. There is no question that it is the most life-changing book ever written. The most influential Bible translation in history is without doubt the 1611 King James Version. The Bible is also the most valuable book in history. A single copy of the Guttenberg Bible (printed in 1456) was sold in 1987, for over US$4 Million. One copy of William Tyndale's original printed New Testament was sold for over £1 Million. The impact of the Bible upon Western civilisation has been absolutely enormous. The Bible has inspired the greatest literature, the greatest art, the greatest achievements in architecture, the rule of law, the separation of powers, checks and balances, representative government, the sanctity of life, compassion, charity, liberty and justice. The Bible tells the Greatest True story ever told about the Greatest Man, who accomplished the most important task ever - the purchasing of our Salvation with His Blood.
Stepping Stones to Success
Some years ago, George and Alec Gallup undertook an exhaustive investigation as to what makes some people more successful than others. Using the polling techniques that have made them famous, the brothers researched and wrote a book on Success. One of their conclusions: Successful people read.
Foundations for Constructive Conversation
George Gallup found that reading was essential because it "makes a person ready to converse… these people have a broad knowledge… and more information with which to make evaluations and decisions."
Gym for the Mind
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. Books are minds alive on the shelves. By taking up one of these books and opening it, we can hear the voices of people far away in time and space. By reading we can hear great people of long ago speaking to us, mind to mind, heart to heart.
