Discover Creation Training Institute

“But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.”            

1  Peter 3:15



What is Discover  Creation Training Institute (DCTI)?

Alpha Omega Institute’s DCTI is a specialized 1-year training program designed to fortify students with a creation-based Biblical worldview with an emphasis on applied apologetics and personal discipleship. Our goal is to create a community of learners, serious about growing in their own knowledge and relationship with the Lord and defending and sharing their faith with others. It is a unique opportunity which includes many exciting field trips and practical ministry outreach. DCTI is designed to help individuals:

  • Transition from high school to college.
  • Gain a “breath of fresh air” from their current college or workplace.
  • Receive specialized training in creation ministry and evangelism.


“After 30 years of personal experience teaching creation at churches and universities, I can affirm that the number one reason students give for rejecting the Gospel is evolution.  The evolutionary naturalistic worldview that permeates our culture is a primary factor that ‘Christian’ students give for rejecting their faith. Students need truthful answers, supportive relationships, and practical experience to stand firmly and make a difference.”  — Dave Nutting, Founder and Director, Alpha Omega Institute

Goals of DCTI

  • To encourage students to think and reason so they can cement a Biblical Worldview as the foundation for their lives.
  • To “fire-proof” students so they can stand firmly in their faith.
  • To help already “shell-shocked” students connect their hearts and minds in faith.
  • To challenge and disciple students to find their own God-directed passion and purpose.
  • To provide students with practical ministry experience.
  • To equip and empower students to impact classmates and others with “gentleness and reverence.

My 1-year at a Bible college was a foundational experience growing in God’s Word and learning Creation Science. There is a lot of deception in our world and people need Real Answers for their faith!”
