First Look 2018

An intensive First Look at the Stoa Debate Resolution

About First Look


This is not a typical debate camp! There are no lectures on debate theory, no lab groups, and no practice rounds. The focus is on learning about the resolution.

The ideal debate season starts with head knowledge about the resolution. Our high class speakers will provide this, from a variety of different perspectives, directly to you.

Head knowledge, resources, and case ideas are the fruit of this concentrated, intensive two-day conference on the Stoa Team Policy Debate Resolution.

Biblical Principles of Government

coming to

Time

7:00 – 9:00pm

Dates

Thursdays, Aug. 9 – Oct. 11

Location

Big Valley Grace Church

Cost

$20 + tax per study guide

About

Biblical Principles of Government is a family class taught by IPS President, Mike Winther, that dives deep within the Christian worldview to discover the proper roles of family, church, and civil government in society through the pages of Scripture.

Relevance



Where ethics touches economics and government, the Bible is relevant.

Goal



Build a social order based upon biblical principles that reflects the glory of God.

Importance



As stewards of God's creation, we need to know how He intended society to operate. 

Impact



To the extent that we follow God's laws, is the extent to which we will prosper.

Testimonies



“I appreciate being taught how government, politics, economics, and history are all woven together in a way that impacts each of us on a daily basis.”

– Joyce



“I thought I knew a lot about Government and how it works, and this class has opened my eyes to areas I had never thought about and to find out how God relates to it opened my eyes even more... GREAT JOB!”

– Louis



“Truth is never out outdated and needs to be retold, remembered and talked about forever. Thanks for all the time you have devoted to getting the truth out there!”

– Dave


“My wife and I signed up for this class because we felt obligated to gain a better understanding of how Scripture intersects with government, public policy, and economics.”

– Daniel  



“I have been fortunate enough to be able to take a trip to the Holy Land, to take a ‘Heritage’ tour with Marshall Foster, and visit many of our county’s historical landmarks. This 10 week IPS course is far more valuable than all those other things combined.”

– Pat



“This class has been the absolute most informative and interesting material about freedom and our government. ”

– Michelle
