Creation Science Meeting

Title of DVD #1: “Grand Canyon, Testimony to the Biblical Account of Earth’s History”. SPEAKER: DR. ANDREW SNELLING. The Grand Canyon offers some of the most breathtaking vistas in the world, but did the tiny Colorado River really carve this massive feature? Evolutionary thinking about the Grand Canyon requires the passage of million of years. Dr. Andrew Snelling uses diagrams, beautiful photographs of the canyon, and his first-hand knowledge to dismantle this story. Using the biblical Flood as his starting point, Dr. Snelling shows how the Grand Canyon bears testimony to rapid erosion as a result of the waters left behind by the global Flood.
Title of DVD #2: "River of the Grand Canyon". A voyage through the Grand Canyon; a combination of river rapids, scenery, side canyons and fellowship. A fun-loving saga of both past and present day river running and exploring.
Come & join the coffee, snacks, discussion and fun as we consider these questions.

Headlining our Ministry Team is the 3-time Grammy nominated band LEELAND to lead worship for most of the conference. The rest of the Team include Hosts Faisal and Sabina Malick, Guest Speakers Clive Pick, John Mark Pool, Andre Ashby and Leeland Mooring.

Double Doors 3 was birthed out of a prophetic word from Isaiah 45:1-3 where God is going before His people to open the double doors and bring to light the hidden treasures of darkness for the purpose of ushering in an unprecedented harvest of souls into the Kingdom (Acts 2:16-21).

For the very first time, we are gathering for 7 days to seek the Presence of God in this pivotal time in history. We invite you to enter into a greater manifestation of God’s abiding Presence under an open Heaven in this season of double doors. The key in all this is knowing His ways and His Presence.

Rachel's Ride for Rwanda

The Second Annual Rachel's Ride for Rwanda is a family-friendly cyclathon, created by 12-year-old Rachel Fitz, in support of the Wellspring Foundation for Education, taking place on July 4th at Derby Reach Regional Park. Wellspring is passionate about real life change in all members of the Wellspring community, as we show the love of Christ by empowering a new generation of leaders in Central and Eastern Africa and beyond. After living in Rwanda for three years, Rachel wanted to be able to make a difference in the lives of her Rwandan friends, and to have other kids do the same, so she created this bike ride for kids and their families to participate in. Last year, our riders raised over $5600 for our work! Riders are asked to fundraise $100 in support of Wellspring's work. Riders can register before May 15 for early bird pricing of $25/rider, or $75/family. For more information, or to register, check out our website at
