It’s easy to go through life without asking the hard questions about what we believe and why. But when faced with a tragedy or the searching questions of a skeptic, we can feel defenseless and unprepared. It’s only when we patiently listen to our doubts and consider objections to our faith that we can start to provide grounds for our beliefs and understand others who doubt.
Join us in February to hear from incredible speakers including Sean McDowell, Jeff Tallon, and Tim McGrew as we consider some of the toughest questions about Christianity. The conference will provide a full day of sessions, breakouts, lunch, and a panel discussion. Whether you are a high school student, at university, or simply interested in understanding more about the reasons for Christianity, we encourage you to come. Youth pastors, student leaders, and parents are also welcome.
WHEN: Saturday, February 18 (10am- 4.30pm)
WHERE: Greenlane Christian Centre, 17 Marewa Rd, Greenlane, Auckland
