Reasons For Hope
Guest Appearance from Former Green Bay Packer player “KGB”
Author and Comedian
The church is losing its next generation at an alarming rate. Anywhere from 50 to 88 percent of the young people raised in Bible-believing Christian homes walk away from the church after age 18. In this seminar, Carl examines the causes of this huge exodus, but then shows that by starting with the Bible, solutions can be offered to this massive problem in the church. Teaching just Bible stories to our children isn’t working; young people in our churches need to know how to stand uncompromisingly on the authority and accuracy of the Bible so that they can answer the skeptical questions of the age.

10:35 – 11:15 – Reasons for HOPE In the Mosaic of Your Life
Carl Kerby is President and founder of Reasons for Hope. Carl Kerby was a founding Board Member of Answers in Genesis, the organization who originated the Creation Museum that is located in northern Kentucky. Carl served 15 years with AiG before stepping out in faith to become the president and founder of Reasons for Hope. Carl’s passion is to proclaim the authority and accuracy of the Bible, to engage minds and hearts of believers and unbelievers in today’s culture of the realities of the Word of God. He has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, and Wales.
Jurassic Park or Jesus: Who Knows More?
Ask this question in the church today and almost every Christian will ‘say’ Jesus! The only problem is that when asked specific questions about dinosaurs Christians will answer with a ‘Jurassic Park’ mentality! Using clips from the wildly popular ‘Jurassic Park’ movies Carl shares what is being taught in the movies but then contrasts it with what the Bible teaches and science really shows. This is a very powerful multi-media presentation that will help all to differentiate between ‘fact’ and ‘fiction’!
What is the ‘Best Evidence’ God Created?
Experience one of the most popular talks by Carl Kerby, founder of Reasons for Hope! Audiences worldwide have been thrilled with this energetic, eye-catching presentation on some of the most astounding evidences of God’s handiwork. Carl Kerby builds to an unforgettable conclusion – the life changing truth that the best evidence is God’s Word itself!
Becoming Bold Know it! Live it! Share it!
Why do Christians need to care about taking a stand on the authority of the Word of God? Using a man-on-the-street interview you see how the typical Christian answers basic questions about their faith. This talk will challenge you to become a bolder witness!
Fossils: Friend or Foe
This entertaining talk will challenge the belief that the fossil record supports the teaching of millions of years. A proper understanding of what the ‘evidence’ shows in the fossil record is vital to having Biblical answers in today’s world. We will cover how bias and world-views affect the way that we see the world around us. Questions such as, “What do fossils really show us?”, “Doesn’t it take millions of years for fossil formation?”, “What about the phylogenetic charts of many animal families ‘proving’ evolution?” will all be discussed. You will learn how to look at these things with a critical eye. The information in this talk will help prepare you to reconnect the Bible to the real world.
Human Evolution: Is That All You Got?
In our world today we’re inundated with the message that man evolved over millions of years. Our school systems, television programs, movies and even music push this message on us constantly. But, what does the ‘evidence’ really show? Using information from the “Revealing the Link” website Carl will discuss the supposed evolutionary ‘ancestors’ used there to “prove” human evolution. This includes the world famous, Lucy. Once we look beyond the “veneer” at what the actual evidence really shows, you may be surprised! We can and need to have answers to these issues today.
Evangelism 101 (10 Things A Christian Can Learn About Evangelism, From An Atheist!)
If we want to reach the world today with the Gospel we’re going to have as many tools at our disposal as possible. One tool that everyone of us can use is, conversation! In this talk Carl uses clips from a popular TV program from Showtime featuring the entertainers Penn and Teller attacking Christianity and the Bible. Carl shows how and how NOT to answer the attacks leveled against Christians. The conclusion is one not soon forgotten where the “power of conversation” is seen first hand. This presentation will help and challenge audiences to be both real and relevant as they learn to talk with, not at, people in order to impact the culture.
