The Spreading the Fire events are designed to equip Christians to talk to the lost, and immediately put what they learn at the conference in practice with guidance and support from seasoned evangelists. There will be so many others practicing evangelism at this event that you can watch others until you are ready to step out of your comfort zone and get fired up. There is no better way to grow spiritually than to OBEY the Savior who died for you and warn the lost of the fire to come. Many will find a spiritual transformation after a day of evangelism!!

Greg Koukl started out thinking he was too smart to become a Christian and ended up giving his life for the defense of the Christian faith. A central theme of Greg’s speaking and writing is that Christianity can compete in the marketplace of ideas when it’s properly understood and properly articulated.
Greg’s teaching has been featured on Focus on the Family radio, he’s been interviewed for CBN and the BBC, he’s debated atheist Michael Shermer on Hugh Hewitt’s national radio show, and did a one-hour national television debate with Deepak Chopra on Lee Strobel’s “Faith Under Fire.” Greg has been quoted in U.S. News & World Report and the L.A. Times. An award-winning writer, Greg is author of Tactics—A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions, Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air with Francis J. Beckwith, and Precious Unborn Human Persons. Greg has published more than 180 articles and has spoken on nearly 60 university and college campuses both in the U.S. and abroad.
Greg received his Masters in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at Talbot School of Theology, graduating with high honors, and his Masters in Christian Apologetics from Simon Greenleaf University. He is an adjunct professor in Christian apologetics at Biola University. He’s hosted his own radio talk show for over 20 years advocating clear-thinking Christianity and defending the Christian worldview.
My name is Paul Taylor: . I was born quite young in 1961 in Ashton-under-Lyne, which was then in Lancashire, England, though under county reorganization in the 1970s, it became part of Tameside, Greater Manchester. I grew up, eventually, but before I did, I was educated at Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester—originally hoping to become a concert pianist.
In 1979, I went up to Nottingham University to read Chemistry. I stayed on, after graduating, and also got my Post Graduate Certificate in Education and then became a schoolteacher.
During my first teaching post—1983-1986 at Droylsden High School—I joined forces with four other teachers and we wrote a successful school musical called Secrets.
I became a Christian in 1977, and was baptized in 1982. I have regularly preached and written on a variety of subjects, especially music in worship and creationism. I am the author of several books, including “The Six Days of Genesis”, “No Time for Itching Ears” and “Don’t Miss the Boat”.
As a schoolteacher, I taught in a number of state comprehensive schools (the sort of schools that Americans would call public schools), eventually becoming a Head of Science. In 2000, I left teaching and set up an ICT training and web development business, which proved popular and successful. In 2005, I was invited to work for Answers in Genesis (UK/Europe), where I worked until 2011, when I moved to the United States to work for Creation Today. I am now based in Pensacola, Florida, and work with a number of creation ministries, especially Jay Seegert of the Creation Education Center and Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope.
I am married to Geraldene, and we have five children between us.
