Renounced speaker to come to New Life Fellowship in Rimbey

Speaker from Creations Ministries to come to Rimbey

A special guest speaker will come to Rimbey New Life Fellowship on Sun. Oct. 14.

Dr. Mark Harwood from Creations Ministries will speak on ‘A brief, but True, History of Time.’

Dr. Harwood, who describes himself as something of a ‘closet Christian’ during his university years, explains how science and the Bible do actually co-exist and how he discovered, in his own way, that the Word of God does make sense.

Rev.Reg Darnell, the pastor at Rimbey New Life Fellowship, is very much looking forward to hearing Dr. Harwood speak. He explained that the renowned personality is one of five speakers who will attend a Creation Conference in Red Deer on Oct. 12 and 13, so will be able to come to Rimbey on Sunday.

The service will begin as usual at 10:30 with music and worship and then Dr. Harwood will speak.

“I’m looking forward to it,” said Rev. Darnell. “It (society) tends to trust science, but really scientific credibility and the Gospel are not in opposition.”

Dr. Harwood completed his tertiary education at the University of Sydney where he received B.Sc., B.E. (Hons) and Ph.D. degrees. His postgraduate studies were focused on radiotelescopes and computer techniques for antenna design and measurement.

Harwood played a key role in the development of Australia’s national satellite system. He has now retired from the aerospace industry where he was general manager, strategy and planning for the Optus satellite business.

In his younger years Harwood assumed that God must have created through the processes of evolution but that idea provided no meaningful basis for Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross. But when he was confronted on the historical truth of the creation account in Genesis he realised that those opening chapters were actually true. Then God’s plan of redemption finally made sense.

Dr Harwood is now employed by CMI as a speaker and scientist and oversees the speaker development program for the Australian and Singaporean ministries. Currently, he speaks passionately, both in Australia and internationally, about the scientific credibility and the Gospel relevance of the Genesis account of creation.
