Worldview: a comprehensive conception or image of the universe and of humanity's relation to it.
EVERYONE HAS A WORLDVIEW!
Everyone has a worldview. It is how we see the world around us, and it is the filter we use for interacting with others. Our worldview is something that develops over our lifetime. It is formed by our upbringing, our environment, our experiences, our education, our religious beliefs, our culture, and everything else that touches our lives.
YOUR WORLDVIEW IS AFFECTING YOUR WHOLE LIFE!
Our worldview is often something we don't think about, but it impacts every facet of our lives. Not only that, but others have worldviews which are dramatically different from our own. It is often in those differences that conflict takes place. Most people believe their worldview is the correct one, and therefore, other worldviews are wrong. Understanding our own worldview and the worldview of others may not solve all the issues of life, but it equips us to work toward a positive outcome.
WHY A WORLDVIEWS SEMINAR?
This seminar is offered to help you understand some of the major worldviews and how those worldviews impact significant areas of thought and life. You should come away with a better understanding of why you see the world the way you do and why others behave the way they do. In an ever-increasingly confusing and conflicted world, there is growing fear and hopelessness because people don't understand why things are the way they are, either in their life, or in the world around them. This Worldviews Seminar should help you to understand why things are the way they are, and that understanding will point you to the hope and peace available to anyone who wants it.
Every human being in the world has a "worldview" - that is, they have a grid through which they make decisions for every aspect of life.

Worldviews Seminar Speaker
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Justin Alfred, and I was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. I graduated from Murrah High School in Jackson in June, 1965, and went on to attend Mississippi State University on a football scholarship. On October 1, 1965, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior through the ministry of some fellow athletes who were members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I in turn became very involved in the ministry of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and had the opoportunity to share and minister throughout the southeast while in college. During this time I also met and married my wife, Janie, and God has given us five beautiful daughters and two wonderful sons-in-law. I graduated from Mississippi State in June, 1969, with a BA in history and philosophy, and then from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in May, 1973, with a Th.M. I pastored in south Louisiana for five years after finishing at NOBTS, and then my family and I moved to southern California in order that I might continue to do further studies. I subsequently enrolled at UCLA and received an MA in Near Eastern Languages & Cultures and also began work toward a Ph.D. in that same field. While in California, I was invited to become a part of the ministry at Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa. We left California in March, 1983, to pastor a church in Parker, Colorado, and then in June, 1984, I became the pastor of Calvary Chapel of Colorado Springs. In April, 1997, my family and I moved to Murrieta, California where I served as an instructor at the Calvary Chapel Bible College for two years. In May, 1999, I left the Bible College and began my present teaching ministry that now spans the United States and overseas.I have also been serving as an Adjunct Professor at the Azusa Pacific Seminary in San Diego since the Fall of 2004.
God has been so very gracious to my family and me over all these years, and we fully know and realize that apart from His grace and mercy, we have and are nothing. Consequently, as I view God's grace and mercy toward me in the face of all my sin and failure, I have no recourse but to extend that same grace and mercy toward others that He has so abundantly lavished on me. This, therefore, is the basis, goal and direction of this ministry, and I pray that God will indeed bless you as you seek Him in the truth of His Word as He has blessed my family and me.
