Welcoming Groups | The Institute for Creation Research
Welcoming Groups

Since opening in September 2019, the ICR Discovery Center for Science & Earth History has welcomed groups both small and large. One recent group was Josh McDowell and his ministry team. Located in Plano, Texas—just north of Dallas—the ministry “serves and equips the Body of Christ in raising generations of purpose-driven Christians who know what they believe, why it is true, and how to live it out.”1

The group viewed a planetarium show about God’s creation in the solar system, explored Earth’s history in the exhibit hall, and attended Dr. Brian Thomas’ live science presentation on soft tissue discoveries in dinosaur fossils. Dr. Thomas also shared his Christian testimony and the evidences that led him to embrace biblical creation. ICR was pleased to host Josh McDowell and his guests, and we look forward to welcoming many more ministry, school, and family groups throughout the coming year.
