See below for breakout session speaking topics—register NOW (please register before Tuesday if possible)!
Mike Caba – Archaeology and the Bible
An examination of 20 archaeological artifacts that support the historical reliability of the Bible and also help us to better understand the Bible.
Prof. Ron Marrs – Adolescent Identity Development (Adults/Leaders Session)

Pastor Andrew Sullivan – Walking in Purity (Male Only)
In this session we will look at the Biblical way to walk in purity as a young man.
Dr. Sarah Williams – Destination… Healthy Relationships (Female Only)
Following God’s Signposts for Purity (and Avoiding Painful Detours)
Rev. Stephen Williams – Navigating Public Schools
Charting a course to uphold a Biblical worldview and be a light for Christ in public schools.
Liberty Pike – What do I need to know about abortion?
It’s a big, intimidating topic but this workshop will boil it down to the (non-graphic) basics you need to know.
Greg Clift – His Story and Yours
The focus of this breakout session will enhance your understanding of the Biblical narrative in relationship to your life’s story.
Nathan Betts, The Power of Truth in an Anything-Goes Age (AM Only)
We now live in a fake-news age. While distrust seems to be at an all-time high, we still long for truth. One of the inescapable questions of humanity is what is truth and how do we know it? In this talk, Nathan Betts will discuss the current cultural landscape and share how the Christian faith has incredibly good news to offer us, and to the culture in which we live.
Mary Jo Sharp – Responding to the Intolerance of the New Tolerance (PM Only)
We live in a confused world in which the truth is exchanged for lie. One exchange that is affecting Christians is that tolerance is exchanged for intolerance. Not only are people unsure of what’s offensive or of what’s not offensive, it seems more and more that the term “offensive” is being associated almost exclusively with Christian beliefs. “Who are you to judge” and “that’s hate speech” are rampant slogans of our day. In this session, we will look at how Christians can respond to the accusation of intolerance.
