Theme - Apologetics 101: The Basics

Christian young people face a variety of attacks on the truth of Christianity, and it is vital that they be prepared to give an answer for the hope within them. To help equip young Christian men and women for defending the faith, this conference will provide an overview of key issues in apologetics and give answers to some of the most common attacks on the Christian faith.


SATURDAY, November 6, 2021

 8:30–9:30 a.m. — Registration Opens 

9:30–9:45 a.m. — Welcome

 9:45–10:05 a.m. — Always Ready? by  Nathan W. Bingham
As a Christian, what is my responsibility in sharing my faith? What do I need to know and how can I make sound arguments to defend the gospel? In this session, learn the importance of apologetics and why young Christians must always be ready to share and defend the reason for the hope that lives within them. 

 10:10–10:40 a.m. — Can I Trust the Bible? by  Stephen Nichols
What does the Bible have to do with our lives today? Skeptics are shocked to hear that people in the twenty-first century still believe and take such an ancient text literally. In this session, we will look at the trustworthiness of Scripture, its authority as our guide for life, and learn how to defend the Bible as the Word of God.

 10:40–10:50 a.m. — Now What? Applying What You've Just Heard

 10:50–11:15 a.m. — Break 

 11:15–11:45 a.m. – Who Am I? by  Stephen Nichols
You have probably been told to “just be yourself” if you want to live a good life. But what does it mean to be you? What is your true identity? By God’s grace, Christians have genuine answers to these questions. This session will look at the problem of human identity, helping us come to a secure understanding of who we are by looking to God's Word.

 11:45 a.m.–1:00 p.m. — Lunch 

 1:05–1:25 p.m. – Following Christ in a Digital Age with  Nathan W. Bingham 
We use Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat to connect with our friends. These apps are great tools, but if we aren't careful, they can hurt us—and our friends. How can we use technology in a God-honoring way? This session will go over how we can develop genuine relationships and serve the Lord in our digital age.

 1:30–1:50 p.m. — Is Jesus the Only Way? by Chris Walker
Christians say that Jesus Christ is the only way for salvation, but some people think that’s offensive. How can we believe that God only gives eternal life to those who believe in Jesus? This message will help us understand how to defend the claim that trusting Jesus is the only way to be saved.

 1:50–2:00 p.m. — Now What? Applying What You've Just Heard

 2:00–2:30 p.m. — Break

 2:30–3:00 p.m. — Panel Discussion: How Do I Defend the Gospel? with Nathan W. Bingham, Stephen Nichols, and Chris Walker

 3:00–3:30 p.m. — Q&A: Got Questions? with Stephen Nichols
