in- demand speaker for CMI-US. A marine biologist and geneticist, he collaborated with the Institute for Creation Research on their GENE Project. He continues to be a pioneer in creation human genetics research.

The book of Genesis is under attack like never before. As a foundational book, it’s ultimately an attack on the entire authority of Scripture.

Our good friends at GOD.TV are one of the world’s largest Christian satellite TV networks. This has a potential to reach an overseas global audience of millions! Please pray for many to hear the truth of creation. From a previous camp screening, overseas viewer Sofia A. said:
“I wish to thank you all, scientists ... for giving us this opportunity to watch such a faith building event, which brings glory to our Lord and edifies the saints … I am watching you from Thessaloniki, Greece, the city where the Gospel was first preached with the power of the Holy Spirit, but where … there are no Christian scientists to stand up and teach the faith in God’s Word.”
