Eastgate Ponders Lifestyle, Spiritual Gifts, Creation

The Walla Walla, Wash., Eastgate Church recently hosted three sets of seminars—on lifestyle change, spiritual gifts, and creationism.

Dan Ngaruiya conducted the lifestyle seminar each Friday evening for a month.

Ngaruiya, who has a master’s degree in social work, has a passion to be an agent for lifestyle change and featured nutrition, exercise, water, sunshine, temperance, fresh air, rest, and trust in the program.

He concluded each session with a practical demonstration, ranging from sampling tea to making several types of juices.


Kevin and Stephanie Renshaw led out in “Connections,” a seminar to help Christians identify their special gifts and how to best use them in church ministries.


Doug Newton, M.D., a creationism scholar and expert on the biblical flood, led out in a weekend seminar on creationism.

During the seminar, he displayed many artifacts and replicas and kept things lively and interesting by sharing samples with the audience. •
