Joaquin will give four seminars at the ICHE 2013 State Convention:
MENTORING THE NEXT GENERATION: APPRENTICESHIPS
Drawing from his experience mentoring young men from his church and around the nation, Joaquin will seek to cast a vision for how the recent resurgence of internships and apprenticeships has the potential to return health to the economy—at home and in our communities—and prepare men for leadership in the church and beyond. Joaquin will share some candid behind-the-scenes stories of how interns were responsible for much of what is seen in his award-winning film IndoctriNation.
THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN COMPULSORY EDUCATION
Most Americans, including Christians, believe the public schools had a Christian origin. While the new atheists fight tooth and nail to erase any vestiges of Christianity from our nation's early history, well-meaning ministries are fighting to ‘take back the schools’ and for a return of the Bible and prayer to the government schools. Will any amount of salt and light turn back the tide of secularism in our schools?
A CHRISTIAN EDUCATION MANIFESTO
In the process of research for his documentary film IndoctriNation, Joaquin, a filmmaker and homeschool dad, had his own paradigm significantly shifted as he was confronted with many questions.
CHRISTIAN FILMMAKING IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART
In this very personal presentation, Joaquin will share some of the challenges he faced by following God's lead during the production of his documentary film, when provision was guaranteed only by faith. Drawing from the biblical account of God calling Abraham out from his comfort zone into unknown territory, Joaquin paints a picture that may be helpful to those seeking to do God's will in the field of Christian filmmaking. He also brings a cautionary application from James 3:1 and tells young Christians: Let not many of you become filmmakers!
Joaquin Fernandez's documentary Indoctrination will be shown at the ICHE 2013 State Convention.
