From The Discovery Channel to The Da Vinci Code, there have been no shortage of creative attempts to re-imagine the events of first century Palestine and the dawn of Christianity. Co-Presenters, Steven Tourek and Bill Mast, will offer relevant evidence for the bodily resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth followed by a Question and Answer session.
Each monthly Leadership Forum will feature seasoned professionals reflecting on the lessons they’ve learned in leadership and life, including the difference their faith has made along the way.

Faith Under Fire: Can your belief system withstand
the assaults of life?
Plus Interview with U of M Gopher Wrestling Coach, J Robinson
Join us as Colonel John Morris, U.S. Army shares a dynamic message of faith lived in and out of the foxhole of everyday life.
When faced with life’s challenges; financial hardship, failing health, difficult relationships, social and political upheaval, what we put our faith in is put to the test. Will that faith be brave? Intelligent? Practical? Will it provide hope and meaning, or will it be blind, wishful thinking?
Colonel Morris is the co-creator, along with MG Larry Shellito, of the “Minnesota Beyond the Yellow Ribbon” reintegration program for returning combat veterans and their families. His decorations include the Bronze Star Medal, the Legion of Merit, the Meritorious Service Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters, Army Commendation Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters. He was mobilized in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 and has remained on active duty since.

The Return of the God Hypothesis
Plus interview with Minnesota Twins pitcher, Kyle Gibson
Dr. Stephen Meyer will examine a series of scientific discoveries concerning the origin of life and the universe that have decidedly theistic implications. In so doing, he will challenge the popular notions of the new atheists and others that science, properly understood, undermines belief in God.
Dr. Meyer is a brilliant scientist in his own right, having earned his Ph.D. in the Philosophy of Science from Cambridge University. Currently, he is the Director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture. Dr. Meyer has also authored two outstanding books that have helped advance the Intelligent Design movement: Darwin’s Doubt, and Signature in the Cell.

MN Hockey Great – Bill Butters
Plus interview with Dan Mandich, former NHL defenseman
A Hockey Life
Bill played in a day when the hockey “rink” often approximated a “boxing ring.” Bill’s was a hockey life that followed the rough and tumble, bare-knuckled, “mano y mano” machismo of that day. While Bill was a tough guy and an enforcer all those years, the weight of his own insecurities and confused existence began to take its toll. It was while coaching at a youth hockey camp, of all places, that he learned that there was another, much more fulfilling way to live. His life has never been the same. We are convinced that you will be deeply moved by his story.
Plus interview with former Gopher & NFL tight end, Ben Utecht
There is no story in the history of the world that has captured the minds and hearts of people quite like the story of the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. Without the favorable testimony of the original eye-witnesses, there would be no plausible story and no Christianity today. But was that testimony from these witnesses true? That is the litmus test and gets to the heart of what is ultimately the jugular vein of the Christian truth-claim.
Please join us as J. Warner Wallace applies his investigative tools to this massively important historical controversy.
