experience hosted in larger churches for teens and adults.
LCU is one of 22 schools, including Duke and Emory universities,
to receive recent youth program funding from the endowment.
Program director Dr. Rich Knopp acknowledges, "Thanks to the
generosity of Lilly Endowment, WorldViewEyes has garnered remarkable
national visibility for LCU and generated immeasurable impact on the
personal lives of Christian teens."
Seminar graduates have subsequently attended six Christian
colleges and over 25 other schools, including Princeton, Michigan
State, Washington University and the Julliard School in New York
City. Sixty-nine alumni have attended LCU.
WorldViewEyes challenges youth and adults "to expand their
Christian mind, engage their multimedia culture, evaluate
non-Christian beliefs and embrace a consistently lived Christian
worldview." The program has produced and offered about 60 different
multimedia presentations for conventions, churches and youth
conferences that have been attended by over 62,000 in 20 states. It
has hosted nearly 300 select high school youth from 22 states and
Canada in a variety of accelerated summer seminars. In efforts to
produce a multimedia curriculum, the program has also conducted
videotaped interviews with notable evangelical scholars and authors,
including Sire, Craig, Moreland and McDowell.
