Bio: Eric Ch!co is a Family Medicine boarded physician who currently has a practice treating opiate addicts. At age 10 he was introduced to the art of magic and since then has loved studying all forms of deception. Dr. Ch!co is pursuing a Masters Degree in Apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, NC which he should complete in late 2018. His passion is the combination of magic, medicine and ministry.
Talk synopsis: An Apologetic for Apologetics - Eric Ch!co will define apologetics, outline the biblical mandate for apologetics and explain the importance and practical application of apologetics. Oh, he may also throw in a few magic tricks to illustrate how convincing deception can appear.
Bio: Craig Aven is an ordinary guy with an extraordinary voice and songwriting ability. His passion is to write songs that encourage, lift up, and move others to experience a life of freedom found only in Jesus. Being a graduate of Teen Challenge Cincinnati, a discipleship program that helps men overcome life-controlling issues such as drugs and alcohol, Craig knows first hand the freedom that a relationship with Jesus brings. Worshiping God is his ultimate passion, and it is reflected in the heartfelt lyrics of every song that pours out from his soul.
He has written with songwriters such as Tommy Walker, T.W. Hale, Buddy Mullins, (formerly from The Gaither Vocal Band) and has opened for Chris Tomlin, Natalie Grant, Cindy Morgan, Skillet, Russ Lee and others. He has performed with Newsong, and has appeared on Television with artists such as CeCe Winans, Jonathan Butler, and Martha Munizzi. “ Without Faith ”, a song birthed out of Craig’ s desire to inspire and encourage President George W. Bush during one of the most difficult times in our country’s history, was performed for He and his wife Laura in front of 50,000 people when he was only 22 years old.
He and his wife Tess live in Cincinnati, OH where they are raising three beautiful children.
