Biblical Worldview and Culture: An Amazing Story
Workshop B: Friday, 1:45
A history “fly over” from creation to today helps us gain a deeper understanding of the providence of God in the affairs of men and nations. Twelve key events, occurring at 500-year intervals over the past 10,000 years, show the amazing story of how God advances his purposes for the Kingdom of Christ through key individuals acting in his timing.

He is one of the most in-demand Christian speakers in North America, a native Australian who now lives near Cincinnati, and a prominent blogger and author of numerous books on the accuracy and authority of the Bible, starting with its very first verse.

How to Raise Up Generations to Defend the Christian Faith in an Increasingly Hostile Culture How to Raise Up Generations to Defend the Christian Faith in an Increasingly Hostile Culture – Keynote
General Session #1: Friday, 9:00

About two-thirds of young people leave church by college age-with few returning. Ken looks at new statistical research published in Ready to Return, to show that the millennial generation is more secular in worldview than ever. Millennials who currently attend church are its future voice. A strong stand on biblical authority is needed (rooting out compromise and teaching apologetics) to reclaim lost and coming generations for Christ.

America and the Great Divide: It's Full-On War America and the Great Divide: It's a Full-On War – Keynote
General Session #4: Saturday, 9:00

Most evangelistic programs today (and most missionaries and evangelists) do not see Genesis as a key
part of reaching people with the gospel. The history in Genesis (e.g. the origin of sin) is foundational to a full understanding of the gospel message. Realizing how culture now thinks (and has changed its thinking) in relation to earth history, is a key to approaching people and presenting the gospel!

The Biblical Foundation for Christian Education: How to Raise Godly Offspring The Biblical Foundation for Christian Education: How to Raise Godly Offspring
Workshop C: Saturday, 10:45

Ken shares from his childhood to show parents the importance of a biblical foundation to training children. What does the Bible say (not your opinion) on how to bring up, train, discipline, and educate children? What should education priorities be? Come be inspired and equipped with answers as you lead your family in the truth!

How to Deal with Racism and Prejudice in a Divided Nation How to Deal with Racism and Prejudice in a Divided Nation
Workshop B: Friday, 1:45

So-called racial issues continue to heat up in America. Our culture needs the answers from God’s Word. Understanding what happened at the Tower of Babel is key to understanding the origin of nations, “races,” and prejudice. Ken shares Charles Darwin’s destructive ideas about skin color, facial features, etc. and on the lighter side, a comical perspective on poodles to explain natural selection and speciation.

Why is the Church in America not Impacting the Culture as It Used To?
Workshop A: Friday, 11:15

Find out how Genesis 1-11 is foundational to developing a truly Christian worldview. As Ken
walks you through the 7 C’s of history, you will see how all the Christian doctrine essentials for a truly biblical world view are founded in the geology, biology, astronomy, and anthropology that is recorded in Genesis.

“Therefore, my beloved brothers…

 

Have you felt the growing tension this year?

Truth is no longer accepted as truth. History is being revised. Foundational freedoms and protections now stand in question...

Even attending church safely can no longer be taken for granted!

The war between good and evil is being waged everywhere, yet for those of us who know and trust the Lord, 1 Corinthians 15:58 sets our focus,


“…stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”


It is a great blessing to labor in the Lord with you! Your partnership with us at Christian Heritage is critical in building a strong upcoming generation.

Thank you for loving others well!

Laboring together makes the difference!

Nurturing, training and developing a culture of love and service in your family – pointing each relationship, each individual heart to Jesus – is no easy task.

That’s why gathering together is so important!  And why we at Christian Heritage work hard to provide meaningful events and resources...

  • To enjoy fellowship with other families.
  • To gain tools and encouragement that will strengthen you in your calling.
  • And, to help you feel inspired that what you’re doing is important, worthwhile and has a much higher purpose than you can ever imagine.

 

We love our Christian Heritage community! Just listen to one new person’s experience at a Regional Homeschool Kick Off Picnic…

 


“My heart is full, today I went to a homeschool picnic not knowing ANYONE and I left that place feeling so refreshed. It’s so amazing how true God’s word is when he advises us to gather with those of the same spirit. Watching all the children roam free and playing till dark and women gathering together to talk about the Lord and not about things that are meaningless. That was so refreshing! Most mamas had 6+ blessings and I just loved the peace that they carried. I learned so much not only about homeschooling but how beautiful it is to gather with those who know God’s word and live it.” – a first year homeschooling parent


 

Your love for Jesus shines brightly!

Grateful Hearts Moved to Action!

Two Young Women Gave Back this Summer!

What a heart of gratitude looks like...

 

When Sarah Booy and Heather VanGelder began thinking about all of the wonderful events they had attended with Christian Heritage – conferences and picnics filled with fellowship with other families, inspirational teaching and great opportunities to grow in their love for Jesus,... their heart of gratitude was stirred.

Moved to action and the full support of their families, they planned an event for a lovely summer day in August.


“We have been blessed by Christian Heritage, and want to bless CH by organizing this fundraiser and encouraging fellowship among other like minded families!”


When it was all said and done, the two awesome young women raised over $2,000 for Christian Heritage, blessed MANY families who were able to attend and answered the praise they received,


 “We couldn’t have done it without the support of our families’ and all of you there! All the glory goes to God!!”


This kind of service minded partnership is what we at Christian Heritage pray for in our upcoming generation… and YOUR partnership is just as vital!

More than ever, we must raise up the next generation of godly men and women who will faithfully follow Christ as a light in an increasingly dark world.

Your help is needed …and to be sure, the world is watching!
