2019 Conference Speakers

Dr. Thomas Kindell

Dr. Thomas Kindell was once an ardent believer in the “fact” of evolution. However, through his exposure to the scientific case for creation, he became a zealous creationist. He has received advanced training in scientific creationism through the Graduate School of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) in Santee, California. He has been privileged to study under several of the world's most prominent creationist scientists. He also has studied Christian Apologetics and Biblical-Scientific Creationism at California Graduate School of Theology where he received his M.A. in Biblical Studies.

He holds a Doctorate in Philosophy of Theology (major in philosophy of Biblical apologetics.) Dr. Kindell is the founder and president of Reasons for Faith Ministries, Inc., a non-profit ministry dedicated to equipping Christian believers to “give every man an answer” for their Biblical faith. For over 35 years he has engaged in a traveling teaching ministry lecturing on Biblical apologetics and the scientific case for creation. He has also successfully debated the scientific case for creation against notable evolutionists on high school and college campuses, radio, and television. 

Dr. Kindell is a frequent guest on the radio series “Science, Scripture & Salvation” produced by ICR. He is a member of the Oregon Design Science Association and is a lifetime sustaining member of the Creation Research Society. Dr. Kindell is available full-time on a free will offering basis for speaking engagements throughout the United States and abroad.

Pat Roy

Pat Roy spent 12 years as the Director of Broadcast Media for the Institute for Creation Research (ICR). During that time, he and his wife created Jonathan Park, a kid's radio drama which put all that Pat had learned about 7-day literal creation into a format kids could understand and enjoy. From there, Pat and his wife Sandy, along with daughters Summer and Melody, created Creation Quest. This is an organization doing everything in their power to give families a Biblical and scientific case for Genesis 1 as well as sharing the Gospel. It is Pat’s prayer that God will use this organization to teach people that their life is not mere random happenstance, but that they were put here by a Creator who has an ultimate plan for their lives.

Pat has traveled the nation speaking to hundreds of audiences of all ages, about the importance of trusting God's Word. For more information, including their recently created audio drama “Time Chroniclers”, see their website creationquest.net.

Paul Taylor

Mr. Taylor was born in Ashton-under-Lyne, near Manchester in the North of England, in 1961. Trained as a musician, he eventually got interested in sciences in his later high school years, getting saved at the age of 15 in 1977. After about a year, Paul got a Saturday job in a Christian bookshop, where he came upon literature from a creationist organization in the UK. He was astonished that there were people around – even those with scientific qualifications – that did not believe the theory of evolution. The bookstore manager, who held a degree in science, explained these things to Paul. From that point on, he has written and spoken on the subjects of creation, evolution, Genesis and apologetics.

After obtaining a degree in Chemistry, and a teaching certificate from the University of Nottingham, Mr. Taylor became a high school science teacher. He worked successfully in this career for 18 years, rising through the ranks, eventually to become a Head of Science. Outside work, he was involved in his church, preaching, teaching and leading worship, as well as writing worship songs.

In 2000, Mr. Taylor left teaching to set up an ICT training business, training people mostly in Microsoft Office applications, and web development applications.

In 2005, Mr. Taylor was invited to join Answers in Genesis, and worked at their UK office for 6 years. Paul moved to the United States in 2011 to work for Creation Today, in Pensacola, Florida. Paul and his wife are now the Directors of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center, in Castle Rock, Washington – at Exit 49 off I-5. This is also the exit to the main tourist road leading to the volcano, Mount St. Helens. From this base, Paul continues to travel around the United States, speaking on creation, Genesis and apologetics. Paul and his wife Geraldene, have five children between them.
