About our video speaker
Kurt Wise is director of the Center for Creation Research and Professor of Natural History at Truett McConnell University in Cleveland, Georgia. Trained as an invertebrate paleontologist (B.A., University of Chicago; M.A. & Ph.D., Harvard University), Kurt Wise previously taught at Bryan College and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Unlike the vast percentage of his fellow scientists, Kurt is a young-age creationist, trusting God’s word to conclude that the universe was created by God only about 6,000 years ago. Kurt has been engaged in young-age creation research in biology, geology, and paleontology for more than a quarter century. On these subjects he has authored or co-authored several dozen professional papers, scores of shorter professional articles, and numerous lay publications, including two books, Faith, Form and Time and Something From Nothing. Kurt is currently developing a college conceptual biology textbook.
Kurt has been featured in a number of publications about creationism, including Ron Numbers’ history, The Creationists. In professional creationism, he was one of the founding board members of both the Creation Biology Society and the Creation Geology Society. In the presentation of creationism to the church, he contributed the scientific content for the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky and for the Genesis 1-11 portion of the second edition (1999-2014) of Precepts Ministries’ Genesis Bible study.
Kurt is a dynamic speaker. He was a favored lecturer on the subject of a Christian worldview of science at Summit Ministries camps for fifteen years and a popular workshop leader on the subject of leadership at AWANA conferences for more than a quarter century. For more than three decades, Kurt has spoken in churches on the subject of creationism.
Kurt and his wife Marie live in Cleveland, Georgia. Having served together for thirty years in AWANA Clubs in Massachusetts, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia, Kurt and Marie currently serve in the choir at Friendship Baptist Church in Cleveland, Georgia. The Wises have two married daughters and three grandchildren.
