The origin of the universe has fascinated humans for thousands of years. Just where did everything come from? And is there any meaning to life? Why is this world so beautiful and so messed up at the same time? Is it possible to have any hope living in this broken world? Join us for our weekend away this March to learn about how the world began from the book of Genesis.

Guest Speaker:
DENESH DIVYANATHAN

aic-retreat-2014-guest-speaker

In his former life, Denesh Divyanathan used to report on facts of a quarterly or annual financial significance in his capacity as a business journalist for The Straits Times in Singapore. But he has traded that in to report on facts of an eternal spiritual significance as founding pastor of The Crossing Church in Singapore.

Denesh read Economics at The London School of Economics (BSc Econs). He trained for theology Down Under at Moore Theological College (BTh) and then pursued a Research Masters at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois (ThM).

He is married to Deborah and they have three children, Ethan, Elijah and Emma. Denesh is a long-suffering fan of Liverpool Football Club…but he knows that in Christ, he will truly never walk alone!

Denesh is also President of Project Timothy Singapore.
