Plenary Speakers

CSPN is excited that Axis is joining us this year. Axis has a unique multi-media presentation style that engages audiences. Their ability to translate culture assists adults in discipling children and young people as they face life’s questions and challenges. Axis addresses topics that few people are willing to discuss. Gary Alan Taylor and Dhugie Adams will be our speakers at the US CSPN 2018 conference.

Axis:

Our mission is to empower the next generation to think clearly and critically about what they believe and to take ownership of their faith. We do this not by outsourcing parents, but by resourcing them to disciple and transfer legacy to their children as they face life's questions and challenges. We also support faith leaders in churches and schools by providing content and facilitators who effectively introduce and address life's toughest topics. Click Here to view the plenary topics. For more information on Axis, please visit their website at www.axis.org.

Dhugie:

After high school, Dhugie moved to the coast of North Carolina where he worked as a fire fighter/EMT. His desire to be involved in authentic, meaningful discipleship brought him to Axis in July of 2014, where he traveled around North America speaking to students, teachers, and parents. Dhugie is now living fulltime in Colorado Springs, developing his interests in business and spreading the message of Christ as Senior Director of Live Experience at Axis. In the spring, he will continue pursuing his degree in communications at the University of Colorado- Colorado Springs.

Gary Alan:

Gary Alan has 21 years of experience leading and influencing non-profit and higher educational institutions. He served Focus on the Family as the Sr. Manager of the Christian Worldview Division where he oversaw the creation and implementation of The Truth Project.
