College Expo 2011

This past weekend we had our first College Expo in Legacy Hall at the Creation Museum. With 21 colleges and universities represented, hundreds of students were able to come to the Creation Museum on Friday and Saturday to meet with recruiters.

As we have found from the research done for the recently released book Already Compromised (on the rampant compromise existing in most Christian schools), it is important to do your homework when searching for colleges. Even many Christian schools have compromised biblical authority to allow for evolutionary/millions-of-years humanistic teaching concerning origins. So at AiG, we have sought to identify colleges and universities that testify they  hold to a biblical literal interpretation of God’s Word and the six-day account of creation and a global worldwide Flood.  Of course AiG can’t guarantee what every professor will teach in a classroom, but at least this is a start to help parents and students make the correct choice for a Christian college that stands on God’s Word.

Students were glad to have the opportunity to meet with so many schools and their representatives in one place and also hear some of our excellent teachers over the weekend. Men like Dr. Terry Mortenson, Dr. Jason Lisle, Dr. David Menton, and my brother Steve gave special presentations, workshops, and question and answer sessions.

You can view a list of all the schools whose president has already informed AiG in writing of their agreement with AiG’s statement of faith that is very specific regarding Genesis (not all such colleges were able to attend the expo this year) at www.creationcolleges.org.

The following photographs weren taken during the expo that will give you a bit of a feel of what it was like to be there:

The College Expo will be an annual event, so if you missed out this time, watch for our second annual College Expo coming next fall.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
