Nationally Known Speakers to Highlight Christian Worldview Week

Tigerville SC (March 16, 2017) In an “everything goes” world, it’s crucial that young people have a solid Christian worldview coupled with the ability to defend their beliefs.

That’s why Dr. Alex McFarland, religion and culture expert and author, is hosting the 2017 Christian Worldview Week March 20-22 at North Greenville University where he serves as Director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at the Christian Worldview Center.

The three-day event kicks off March 20, with lectures from two nationally known speakers. On Monday, March 20, Lauren Green, Fox News Correspondent will speak in Turner Chapel at 10:00 a.m. and again at 7:00 p.m.

Green serves as Fox News Channel’s chief religion correspondent based in the New York bureau, hosting the feature “Spirited Debate,” on which McFarland has been a frequent guest. She joined FNC in 1996 and has reported live from Rome in 2013 on the election of Pope Francis, as well as on the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI. Additionally, she provided live coverage of the beatification of Pope John Paul II from Rome in 2011 and Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the United States in 2008.

Prior to joining FNC, Green served as a weekend news anchor and correspondent at WBBM-TV (CBS-2) in Chicago. From 1988 to 1993, she was a general assignment reporter at KSTP-TV (ABC-5) in St. Paul, Minn.

Outside of her career at FNC, Green is a reputable concert pianist with a degree in piano performance from The University of Minnesota. She has interviewed some of the most prominent people in the classical music world including Placido Domingo, Pierre Boulez and Joshua Bell and has covered such events as the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and opening night of The Metropolitan Opera. In 2004, she released her debut album, “Classic Beauty.”

A graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Green was named Miss Minnesota in 1984 and was the third runner-up in the 1985 Miss America contest.

On Tuesday, March 21 at 7:00 p.m. Dr. Tony Beam, Vice President for Student Life and Christian Worldview and host of Christian Worldview Today on Christian Talk 660AM and 92.9FM and Alex McFarland, religion and culture expert, author, and Director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at the Christian Worldview Center will be the featured speakers.
