Helmut Welke, recently retired engineering manager from a Fortune 200 company, holds BS and MS degrees in industrial engineering from the University of Illinois. His Engineering Management Certification qualified him to serve in a variety of national and international assignments. As an elected member of the IISE Board of Trustees, Helmut continues serving the International Industrial and Systems Engineering profession earning the coveted title of an IISE Society Fellow.
Founding the Quad-City Creation Science Association and serving as its President since 2008, Helmut’s well-established track record remains dedicated to the organization’s purpose: educating the world with scientific truth. A member of the Creation Research Society, he was recently named an Ambassador/Speaker for Logos Research Associates.
Helmut has become a popular speaker on Creation Science topics as well as Atheism and Intelligent Design. He has spoken to churches, youth groups, college campuses, and civic organizations throughout the Midwest USA, France, Germany, and Poland.
Polls indicate that over 66% of evangelical youth walk away from the church after college. But this statistic reverses dramatically when high school youth are exposed to quality creation science materials before high school graduation. Helmut fervently addresses this need of providing apologetics training to overcome atheistic teaching, to help the next generation develop a Christian worldview, and to develop convictions that will last a lifetime. His presentations aid audiences of all ages in becoming winsome case-makers for Biblical Creation and the Gospel.
