In the fall of 1995, two things happened that began the formation of the Kanawha Creation Science Group. A daughter came home with questions about the evolutionism being crammed down her throat and Dr. Bert Thompson was speaking several times at a nearby church. Karl Priest went out on a cold drizzling night to hear Dr. Thompson. God laid it upon Karl's heart to begin a local creation science ministry although he had never heard of such a thing. Karl passed out flyers and paid for a radio spot on local Christian radio and reserved a room in the South Charleston library for meetings. There Karl sat alone reading his Bible and praying for several weeks. Just as Karl was beginning to believe his efforts were useless, Bobby O'Connor called and then met with Karl. Dr. John Roller also met with the two men and then a retired science teacher, Jo Bricker, joined the group, thus forming the nucleus of the Kanawha Creation Science Group. The KCSG believes the Bible from The Very First Word and strives to equip others with the materials and information needed to fight against the teachings of evolution. There is a 'to-do' list of about two dozen ideas waiting on the Lord's direction and provision. Contact our speakers and schedule them for your next church or youth service.
