At Charis Bible College in Phoenix, Sal Giardina speaks to the profound question of the Old Testament: Is the Genesis creation record believable, scientifically sound, and essential to Christian faith? Or has evolutionism disproved Genesis and replaced it with mindless mechanical processes? See Sal Giardina on Wednesday, May 4, at 9:00 a.m. or 6:00 p.m. Mr. Giardina is founder of New Creation Ministries, which you can visit at http://www.godordirt.com.

Are 21st Century People Too Smart To Understand?
Having trouble getting the facts about origin science to Gen X and Gen Y people? Most of us do struggle with communicating to the rising generations of thinking people, but there are keys to unlock those minds and ways to deliver the messages effectively in this “post-Christian” secular age. Believe it or not, the Apostle Paul faced a similar challenge in the Roman Empire. Don’t miss these insights as Dr. Ray Mondragon keynotes this month with the perfectly-title presentation: Witnessing to 21st Century Intellectuals. Monday, May 16 in the West Valley; Tuesday, May 17 in the East Valley – 7 p.m. both locations. Dr. Mondragon holds degrees in civil engineering and ministry, and he well understands the mindsets of our day. Get the tips and techniques you can use immediately with friends, in-laws, and most importantly, kids and grandkids! Please go to AzOSA Events Calendar and scroll down to get exact locations.
