S10: Calvin Smith - Gen Z Impact (Youth)

What in the world is going on? Why is it that the Christian church is seeing such a massive decline throughout the Western world in just a few short generations? How is it that the church seems almost helpless in speaking with influence about vital issues such as the sanctity of life, the institution of marriage, sexual ethics and even the freedom to share the Gospel? And why have so many churches conformed to the social norms of the day versus standing firm on the Word of God? What can Gen Z do to not just stand strong in the culture but actually cause an impact in the culture?

Biography: Calvin has spoken at hundreds of churches and has been seen on TV in Canada and internationally (CA, UK, US, AUS) teaching and preaching on creation apologetics and biblical authority since 2001. He is well known for his ability to engage audiences of all ages and being able to communicate theological concepts and scientific information in an easy-to-understand manner. Calvin was formerly on the pastoral staff of a church in Guelph, Ontario, overseeing the youth and small group ministries. Through working with young people, both inside the church and with a small group at the University of Guelph, Calvin personally witnessed the devastation brought to our youth by the teaching of evolutionary rationalism. But he also saw the life-transforming effect of biblical answers that encourage people to know that God’s Word can be trusted from the very first verse.
He is now the Executive Director and Speaker for Answers in Genesis Canada and is excited about bringing the ministry of Answers in Genesis to Canada.
Calvin lives with his wife in Ingersoll, Ontario. His hobbies include music and wrestling.
