Breakout Descriptions

Tim Fuller

The Uniqueness of Jesus (What Makes Jesus so Special?

Jesus existed! There is no doubt about that but who did Jesus claim to be?  Is he just a sage, a moral leader, an ethical teacher, or a political revolutionary?  It is not how others define him but how Jesus defines himself that is of utmost importance.  We will examine the claims that Jesus makes about himself and how those claims make him unique and in a class all by himself.

 

David Sanchez

Ministering to those in our pews who struggle with LGBTQ+ issues

How do we talk about sexual orientation and gender identity in a way that is honoring to God’s word and God’s design but that also extends grace to those who are struggling and/or questioning their stance or beliefs on this issue?

 

Than Chrisopoulos

Are the Gospels Reliable?

Than Christopoulos dives into why the Gospels are historically reliable. This talk will break down the evidence and share compelling reasons why these ancient writings can be trusted and why the typical objections towards the Gospels fall flat.

 

Vidal Muniz

1 a Pedro 3:15 | La Certeza de la Esperanza

Aunque no todo Cristiano va a sufrir, todo seguidor de Jesús debe estar listo para padecer y presentar una defensa, ya sea ante una corte de justicia o ante su vecino, no solo de lo que cree sino también por qué lo cree.

 

Jorge Gil

El Caso de la Resurrección

Investigando el homicidio y la resurrección como lo haría un detective forense.
