Since the Creation Museum opened in 2007, we have been privileged to host several presidents from Bible colleges and seminaries. The most recent was Dr. Matthew Proctor, the president of Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri. He shared with us about the horrible tornado that struck his town several weeks ago—one OCC student died (as well as a former faculty member). Several homes of staff and faculty were damaged. But Dr. Proctor indicated that his university (which was something of a staging ground for much of the relief effort) had the opportunity to be a witness during this tragic time.
In the photo below, you can see him inside our museum with three of his children and his parents (his father and mother live in the Indianapolis area, just two hours from the museum).
While visiting, Dr. Proctor reconnected with one of our speakers and researchers, Bodie Hodge. Dr. Proctor was Bodie’s pastor in Carbondale, Illinois, many years ago. Bodie gave his former pastor a bag of resources to help Dr. Proctor lead his school on a course that maintains a stand on biblical authority. He was also given a briefing on our Ark Encounter project.
