THE DETAILS

Powerpoint Presentation • January 26, 2019 • Dr. Kim Carney, DVM

When our hope is anchored in the inner sanctum of Christ we have a strong foundation. Don’t stop with the foundation—the beauty of life and ministry is in the details of the construction and the décor of life. If your foundational beliefs are correct, then contextualizing the gospel for a people group is a creative work in progress. Join us to explore some parallels in ancient cathedrals and field service in a “Christian country.”

Through a series of powerful providential circumstances and answered prayer, God changed the direction of my life when I was at the top of my career.

This is a powerful story of "The Lord of the Harvest's" pursuit of Sam Galphin DVM and how He has directed my life in the Kingdom.

We'll look at scientific, philosophical, and theological evidence to help create a robust Biblical worldview. You can then compare yours to what we discover together!
