Workshop: Christian Understanding of Math & Science
In school, many of our young people are taught that math is a "neutral subject," and that science is invaluable for an "objective" discovery of truth. Whether explicitly or implicitly, they are taught to believe that religion has nothing to do with math and science, and it is often assumed that anyone who believes in God must be ignorant or lacking in reason.
This workshop is ideal for parents and educators seeking to be equipped to help the next generation lay strong Biblical foundations in their learning journey. By journeying with them to discover God's presence even in math and science, parents and educators will see their mentoring conversations and opportunities take on a new depth and breadth.
Through a blend of lecture and discussion, participants can expect to:
Explore the connection between Mathematics and God's nature
Rediscover the Christian roots of modern Science
Examine some of the objections to evolutionary thinking
Be better equipped for mentoring in an increasingly confusing and pluralistic world

ABOUT YOUR SPEAKER
Jillian has taught General Paper in a local Junior College, and English and educational philosophy in China, where she was also involved in teacher's training and mentoring.
Having seen the aimlessness of many young people, she feels passionately about guiding them to see their studies as a way of loving the Lord with their minds, and to live out their God-given desires in the areas He has called them to. She also enjoys helping parents and teachers be more effective ‘disciplers’ of the next generation, believing them to be key in helping the next generation see the connection between their faith and all of life. Her greatest desire is to see Christians grasp how the application of Christ's teachings can bring shalom to all corners of God’s kingdom.
Apart from serving as Programme Director and Principal at Sterling Campus, her other joys include her husband, Edmund, the visual and performing arts, and cooking for family and friends.
