Exponential Gap Year

Doe River Gorge Christian Camp

Hampton, Tennessee

Creation/Evolution/Apologetics/Bible Weekly Teaching

Teaching provided by Canopy Ministries, Geneva Institute of Christian ThoughtFull Armour Ministries, David Rives MinistriesPoints of Origins Ministries 

Teachers:  Dean Walker, John O’Roark, Steve Falling, James Gardner, Alan White, James Denton, Steven Warhurst, David Rives, Charles Jackson

Exponential is a nine-month, gap year residential learning experience to help young men and women discover their abilities and passions while building a foundation for their faith. Studies include Old Testament, New Testament, logic, apologetics, worldviews and scientific creationism.   The lessons in the Science and the Bible curriculum are chosen to enable Christian young people to defend their faith and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. The focus is on providing answers to questions surrounding the book of Genesis, as it is the most-attacked book of the Bible. The evidence of nature and the proper application of historical and experimental science fully support the straightforward reading of Genesis. In the area of geology and paleontology, the evidence of sedimentary rock layers and fossils provide clear evidence of the Biblical Flood and refute evolution. Teaching will also include lessons on astronomy, biology, chemistry, dinosaurs, The Ark, molecular biology, genetics, radiometric dating and archeology.
