The Lazy Approach to Evangelism

Evangelism doesn’t have to be intimidating or difficult, but in a growing culture of doubt, it must be effective. This is the role of apologetics in evangelism. Taken from his new book, "The Lazy Approach to Evangelism: A Simple Guide for Conversing with Nonbelievers," this session will provide you with the relevant tools for navigating better, more fruitful conversations with those you encounter.

Man or Maker: Who Says Who We Are?

When it comes to understanding our identity and sexuality, who tells us who we are? Sadly, most people in our culture are listening to celebrities and social media. But do they know best? In this presentation, Alan addresses four questions about our identity and evaluates the answers given from both man and our Maker to see how they stack up.

Breakout Descriptions

Robert White

The Reliability of the Bible

According to the Apostle Paul, the pillar and buttress of truth is the church of the living God (1 Tim. 3:15). But what is the standard of truth that this pillar is composed of. For the Christian, that standard and foundation of truth is found in the Holy scriptures. In this session we will discuss evidence that undergirds the claims of the church and the Bible itself, that it is a reliable and authoritative source of truth.

 

Bill Scott

LGBT in the Global Conversation

The mission field needs Apologetics. From Kenya to Cuba, ideologies that have begun in our country are rapidly spreading overseas. This talk will discuss how to approach these ideas respectfully, along with the cultural moment we are living in, and helping those who identify in the LGBTQ community find their identity in Christ.

Can I Ask You A Question?: Starting Gospel Conversations and Answering Objections

A Gospel-centered, respectful, normal-feeling, memorable way to witness that also solves 3 big fears in witnessing: I don’t know what to say, I'm afraid to offend and I'm afraid I can't answer objections to the Gospel.
