Jay Seegert of the Creation Education Center (CEC) will speak in our church auditorium this Sunday morning, November 23.
The Creation Education Center is a non-profit organization established in 2007 to address the challenge from the secular world regarding the validity and accuracy of the Bible, especially the creation account as described in the book of Genesis.
There is a daily barrage of information coming from the secular media, mainstream science publications and public school system that is in direct conflict with the straight-forward teachings of the Bible. All too often Christians are intimidated by this onslaught and are confused as to how to address this heated and very significant controversy. More often than not, it is the view of the Bible that is compromised in order to mesh with the “latest findings.”
The primary purpose of CEC is to assist churches and other organizations (such as schools, camps and conferences, etc.) in instructing people regarding the authority of God’s Word.
Jay tells his story:
I was raised in a strong Christian home and accepted Christ as Savior while in grade school. My entire family attended a very biblically-sound non-denominational Bible church, where we were all involved in various ministries. My father was Chairman of the Board for a number of years.
After graduating from high school, I initially attended John Brown University, a Christian college in Arkansas to study Mechanical Engineering. Just after my junior year, I changed my major to Physics and transferred to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (John Brown did not offer Physics as a major). While attending UW-Whitewater, I was a member of Sigma-Pi-Sigma (National Physics Honor Society). I graduated in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics (UW-Whitewater) and an Associates of Science degree in Engineering Technology (John Brown University).
Personal Ministry Background
My initial interest in apologetics, especially creation science, began while attending UW-Whitewater in 1985, largely due to the fact that all of my professors were evolutionists and some were atheists. It was there that I wrote my first paper on creation science and gave my first lecture (to the university’s Physics Club).
Over the past 27 years, I have spoken in numerous churches, conferences (some where over 5,000 attended), secular schools, Christian schools, universities and various other venues. In addition to creation related topics, I have also spoken on: “The Existence of God”, “The Origin of the Bible”, “The Inspiration & Authority of the Bible”, “Alleged Errors/Contradictions of the Bible”, “Science & the Bible”, “Prophecy & the Bible”, “Jehovah’s Witnesses”, “Mormonism”, “The Deity of Christ”, “Old Testament History”, and “Witnessing & Evangelism Training”.
