The War Out There, Introduction to Worldview; and Q&A with Trip
Saturday, January 22, 2022
The Case for Life (Megan)
The Bankruptcy of Moral Relativism (Megan)
Sunday, January 23, 2022
The War Out There: this talk is an attempt to motivate attendees to ensure they are aware of the battle going on in the unseen realm and to make sure they are prepared to survive and thrive when they leave their familiar Christian bubble (family, church, school) and step into the secular realm.
Introduction to Worldview: in a culture that is full of ideas coming at us from every direction it can be difficult to know which way is up let alone make a stand for one's Christian convictions. This talk explores what a worldview is, the importance of having one that lines up with reality, and how to spot false ones. The audience will be encouraged to move forward in this seemingly daunting task by learning to look for patterns of ideas that will allow them to begin advancing the Christian worldview in their own lives as well as the culture around them. 1
The Case for Life: communicating and defending the pro-life view persuasively and graciously.
The Bankruptcy of Moral Relativism: learn how moral relativism has impacted cultural dialogue on moral issues, and how to respond with truth and grace.
Tactics: how to discuss your Christian convictions with people who don’t believe the way you do. We discuss the best approaches to having productive and grace-filled discussions about Christianity in any setting. This is modeled after the book "Tactics: How to discuss your Christian Convictions" by Greg Koukl.
Tripp Almon relocated to the great state of Colorado with his wife, Megan, and their kids, Neely and Rogan, from the little town of Newnan, Georgia — just south of Atlanta. Tripp’s passion for educating students in the areas of Christian theology, worldview, and apologetics grew in large part from growing up in a Christian home and then struggling profoundly with the tidal wave of cultural ideas that engulfed him as he entered a secular university. Thankfully, his experience taught him that Christianity not only stands in the marketplace of ideas — it soars. Since then, he and Megan, an apologist and speaker with Life Training Institute, seek to cultivate environments where students feel the freedom to ask big questions and are encouraged to pursue real answers. Before joining Summit, Tripp, a former elite gymnast, coached gymnastics for more than two decades and served as a pastor for 10 years. He and his family love the outdoors and adventure sports, particularly off-road motorcycling. Tripp is also a rally car co-driver with Almon Brothers Racing Team — 2017 champions of the NASA Rally Atlantic Cup Series.
Megan has trained tens of thousands of individuals in the U.S. and abroad to articulate and defend the pro-life view since joining Life Training Institute as a speaker in 2009. As a wife, mom, athlete, artist, avid reader, and teacher, she has a unique perspective that endears her to any audience. Megan was part of the 2002 SEC championship women’ s gymnastics team at the University of Georgia. She worked as an award-winning journalist until 2008, and was awarded a Master of Arts degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University in 2011. Megan and her husband, Tripp, who serves as Director of Programs and Semester with Summit Ministries, have been married since 2003 and have two children, Neely and Rogan. Megan enjoys spending time with her family at their home in Manitou Springs, Co., and is still known to practice handstands in her kitchen. She has served as faculty at Summit Ministries and Impact 360. She has spoken to high school-and-college assemblies and classrooms, conferences, youth organizations, women’s groups, and congregations across the nation.
