Breakout descriptions

Telling Your Story: How to Effectively Write and Share Your Testimony

People can refute your faith, your belief in God and your reliance on the Bible,

but they cannot refute your testimony. It is, therefore, important to have your story well-prepared so you can be ready to share it at every opportunity.


Creation Evangelism

Today we're often interacting with a biblically illiterate "Greek" culture (Acts 17) rather than a "Jewish" one (Acts 2). Evolution and various "theistic" theories have taken over academia and destroyed confidence in the Bible. Copying the Apostle Paul, we must undergird our Christian witness with the truths about the origin of sin and its remedy first introduced in the literal creation account.


Engaging Islam

This session will provide a mindset of witnessing to Muslims, cover geography and Islamic world populations, understanding the world is on our doorstep, cover the background, tenets, differences with Christianity and history of Islam, offer suggestions when ministering to Muslims, cover some common objections, think about our Christian response, offer outreach ideas, and provide additional resources.


Gospel-Centered Hospitality.

We will discuss biblical hospitality and the Great Commission. We will encourage one another to cultivate homes that welcome others with gospel intentionality.
