Worldview Academy Comes to Baylor Campus June 13-18

June 9, 1999

Baylor University will host Worldview Academy, an academic leadership camp, June


The camp, in its fifth year of operation, is sponsored by Worldview Academy, a nondenominational, educational organization in Bryan that holds 13 regional camps throughout the country. The camp's main emphasis is on teaching apologetics and evangelism, servant leadership and biblical worldview, challenging students to look at things from a biblical standpoint and to lead and serve with integrity.

"We teach Christian students how to think biblically, and we show students how to share their faith," said Randy Sims, director of the organization.

The camp is open to students ages 13 and up. During the week, students will participate in sports and relays, street evangelism, singing, worship and many other camp activities. Worldview has a core group of college staff from across the United States who travel to each of these camps to lead small groups and work with students.

A variety of classes, taught by college faculty and seminary professors from various parts of the United States, will be held throughout the week, such as "Pop Culture and Worldviews," "Creation vs. Evolution," "Comparison of Christianity with Other Worldviews" and "How to Have a Quiet Time." Through these classes, students will learn how to evaluate popular culture from a biblical standpoint, how to defend the Christian faith and how to challenge others to defend their faith.

The cost of the camp is $395 per student, which includes meals and lodging on the Baylor campus, a camp T-shirt, a student notebook and a group picture.
