STEM Lecture with Dr. Thomas Kollars
- This event has passed.
Oct 12, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
As a retired combat arms and preventive medicine officer in the Army, much of Dr. Kollars’ research focused on prevention of infectious disease and defense against weapons of mass destruction. As a medical missionary and chaplain, his objective is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world using technologies in science, public health, music, and art. As well as being a scientist, Dr. Kollars is a classically trained musician/composer and enjoys jazz.
Dr. Kollars states, “Tying these diverse technologies into serving the Kingdom of God has been the most rewarding professional endeavor of my life.” Examples of his research include: a vector control system, the ProVector, which has helped protect over 250,000 families in 60 countries from disease while giving them the gospel; Faith Multipliers which has reached nearly 100 million people with the gospel, particularly in the 10:40 window countries; and DNAudio/DNArt which produces music and art from genetic sequences emphasizing how all creation points to God. Dr. Kollars will be speaking on “Application of New Technologies to Spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
All are invited!
