About Day 4 Astronomy
ABOUT DAY 4 ASTRONOMY
Founded in Plano, Texas, in 2006, Day 4 Astronomy was formed for the purpose of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ using Biblical Astronomy as a platform. Currently meeting monthly at the Institute for Creation Research in Dallas, Texas, Day 4 Astronomy is here to: 1) show people of all ages the evidences that point to our creator God as the origin of all things, 2) to teach them how to navigate the night sky, 3) to help them in their endeavors to own and use the tools of astronomers, and 4) most importantly, to show Christians how to share the Gospel using their knowledge of apologetics, astronomy skills and tools. We are here to make and grow Christian Astronomers around the country and around the world!

JAMES WORRELL – Director of Astronomy & Education
James received his bachelor’s degree in geology from the University of Texas in Arlington. He is passionate about revealing God’s power and majesty through the tools of astronomy. James uses telescopes and the night sky to help build up the faith of the Church. Originally a theistic evolutionist, he discovered his faith in secular opinion and old ages was inconsistent with a biblical worldview. He has since become a biblical creationist and believes there is a great falling away within the church due to professing Christians supporting atheistic evolutionary ideas. James’s hobbies include, hiking, backpacking, and studying ancient civilizations and their historical context to the Bible. James has been married to his wife Rebekah for over 30 years and has three children.
