Ministry Move Update

MINISTRY MOVE UPDATE


We are finally moved. It was a move that took a great deal of preparation. The fossil collections had to be packed carefully and the displays were taken apart so that they can be safely transported. The numerous teaching materials that we have used for the past 16 years were gone through and boxed. We thank the Lord for all the help from volunteers and Calvary Chapel, Fort Lauderdale that actually provided a truck and the man power to make a successful move.

There is much excitement about moving to our new location at the campus of South Florida Bible College and Theological Seminary. In our new CSI home, there will be a fantastic opportunity to grow and to significantly impact many more lives for Christ.  New floors were installed, and beautiful walls will be framed in with aluminum Teilen wall system with both glass and melamine giving an elegant appearance. It will be used throughout the area, giving us the necessary separation for offices, museum space, and classroom activities.

Since we are moving into an ample open space, we have the freedom to design the area to our needs. Much of the space is going to be dedicated to exhibits, interactive displays, and room for adults and children to be involved in hands-on workshops. It is our desire to make this new home a place to give God all the honor and glory so both young and old can experience and get excited about their Creator.

As we planned, Phase 1 is getting the ministry operational with a complete fresh new vision. It will be completed once updating our current museum exhibits and keeping displays flexible.  This would provide the opportunity for new and current themes as needed to keep the interest of our visitors.  We are moving on schedule and hope to complete this phase by the end of September. Of course, this depends on the meeting of our financial goal of $50,000. At this point, we have reached 50% of our goal, which is a great start and we give thanks to our Lord. Once phase 1 is completed by the end of September we will move into Phase 2 in which we’ll be adding new interactive exhibits, a Starlab Planetarium and a mammoth wonder from the Ice Age in which we will trust in the Lord to raise another $50,000 which extend our outreach exponentially reaching many souls for Christ with the creation message. 

Please hold us up in your prayers as we move forward in faith and trust in the Lord to bring all the resources necessary to complete this project. Please consider partnering with us to reach our Phase 1 goal with the financial of a gift as the Lord leads you.

 In Christ,
Tom DeRosa
Executive Director of CSI

The Big Problem



The Big Problem

 

 

Most scientists today do not believe in God. According to the 2009 Pew Research poll of the members of the American Advancement of Science, only 33 %believed in God. This trend has increased over the past century. A survey taken by the prestigious National Academy of Science in 1914
found that 59% of scientists polled identified themselves as agnostics and atheists.

In Western Europe, the pollsters have seen an even more drastic increase in atheistic thinking. Unfortunately, in our American, Western European, South American, and communist state schools today, students are taught from a secular viewpoint that the universe, earth, and all living forms spontaneously evolved.

Evolution has replaced the Creator and Savior. This has been going on for years, taking hostage the minds and souls of our youth with terrible consequences. It produces deep confusion about who we are and our true purpose on earth. Without the Creator - an Intelligent Designer - there are no absolutes and no law. No wonder we live ina dangerous world where anything goes.


CSI’s Inception
This ministry began because I was once a victim taken hostage by evolutionary thinking myself. I adopted a man-centered, atheistic worldview, which allowed me to wander from God and lead a life of sin. Today’s culture and the lack of proper training in this next generation is a consequence of this kind of wandering and confusion that we see every day. Our ministry's deep passion and vision is to do away with the disorder and chaos of atheism by reaching the world with the truth of creation and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Christ has manifested himself in creation so that all can see that man is without excuse as Romans 1 declares.

Ministry Growth

God first put this ministry on my heart while I was flying home from a Creation Conference held in Seattle, Washington in 1987. After seeking support from my pastor, Dr. D. James Kennedy (1930-2007), I invited my Sunday School class and my fellow science teachers at Westminster Academy in Ft. Lauderdale, FL to assist me in forming the CSI ministry.

As the ministry began to grow, I was officially appointed Executive Director. CSI became independent in 2007 and continues to follow Dr. Kennedy's legacy, reaching the world with the message of creation and the gospel.

 Our Mission
God has given us a mission to train up children, parents, and Christian leaders through empowering educational programs, engaging hands-on science workshops, and exciting outreaches.

We Believe
God has given this ministry its own uniqueness in creating memorable experiences through our programs. Over the past 29 years, we have taken 15,000 people on Ice Age Fossil Adventures down the Peace River in Florida.  In the process, we have discovered 100,000 Ice Age fossils, including three Columbian Mammoths.


Our Creation Discovery Museum has hosted hundreds of workshops and classes and received thousands of visitors. We have also sponsored 150 creation seminars and outreaches over the years, impacting 150,000 lives. At least 50 leaders were trained up to teach and become ministry leaders for our events.

God continues to shed His amazing grace on our ministry through your generous partnership. We want to thank all those who gave so willingly so that we can continue in His ministry. God, in His remarkable mercy, brought us through the very end of year with many who stepped forward financially to help us continue to do His work. We are encouraged and zealous.  With the Holy Spirit’s help, we want 2017 to be a year of embracing and empowering many more souls than ever before.

In Christ,

Tom DeRosa
Executive Director of CSI

P.S Please prayerfully consider joining us by becoming a monthly donor. This would be a true blessing for us to know that God is providing for our ministry's daily needs.

Adopt an Atheist Prayer Movement

 

As God’s dearly beloved children, we are instructed to pray for all men. In the Sermon of the Mount, the Messiah confronted the superficial religiosity of the spiritual leaders of His day by going beyond the letter of the Law and holding them accountable to the Spirit of the Law. It was no longer sufficient to love your neighbor as revealed in the Mosaic Covenant. The instructions of the New Covenant would require God’s adopted children to be God-like, Christ-like in their desire to see the salvation of all men, even their enemies, II Peter 3:9.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? Matt. 5:43-46

So we are beginning a brand new campaign at the Creation Studies Institute. We are calling on all of our supporters to join our “Adopt an Atheist Prayer Movement” by praying for the salvation of these men and women.
