Our keynote speaker for 2021 family camp will be Richard Fangrad CEO of Christian Ministries International Canada. The location is Echo Lake Bible Camp, near Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan. Mark your calendars! More information coming soon.
Richard Richard Fangradhas been speaking on the creation/evolution issue since 1994. The Canadian CMI office began as a room in his home in late 1998. As a speaker, he is known for his easy-to-understand scientific presentations.
Background: Richard grew up in a Christian home but by high school he had many unanswered questions about creation, Genesis and the accuracy of the Bible that greatly hindered his spiritual growth. This began to change in 1994 after hearing Dr Carl Wieland (from CMI-Australia) and subscribing to Creation magazine, and reading other resources on apologetics.
Richard's education and professional training is in electronics and he had the privilege of working on some of the most technologically advanced electronics for more than a decade before joining CMI. Past hobbies included skydiving (8 times) and hang gliding (nearly 300 flights!). Richard is married and lives in Kitchener, Ontario with his wife and 5 children.
Although the Celebration in its orignal format has ended we are still trusting that other people will "catch the vision and take up the torch" in some new locations and possibly new formats. Sharon and Erin Foreman are working on a written guide describing the rational and objectives they had for the Celebration. Contact Sharon if you want to discuss this with her or if you want a copy of the guide when it is completed.
