FRIDAY, April 26
(5:45 PM) Doors Open – Check-In and Seating
(6:15) Welcome (Bryon Mengle, Master of Ceremonies) & Worship Music (Youth-Led Worship Band)
(7:00) General Session #1: Stephen Williams {Founder/Director Prepare the Way Ministries} – What’s a Worldview and Why Should I Care?: Everyone has a worldview. The question is this…is it a good one or not? In this session, we’ll break down the components of a worldview and explore key questions everyone should be asking. In addition, we will overview a basic Biblical/Christian worldview and explore some of the competing worldviews seeking to undermine Christianity.
(8:20) General Session #2: Prof. Sean McDowell {Apologist/Author/Professor} – Evidence for the New Testament: In this session, Sean presents the historical evidence for how accurately the New Testament has been preserved through history. Even though publicized opinions often claim there is reason for skepticism, recent findings actually strengthen the case for the reliability and trustworthiness of the Scriptures. Sean presents the three main lines of evidence from within the Bible, the transmission of ancient documents, and from archaeology outside the Bible.

SATURDAY, April 27
(9:00 AM) Welcome Back & Worship Music
(9:20) General Session #3: Prof. Sean McDowell {Apologist/Author/Professor} – Using Technology Wisely: How can we think biblically about smartphones and social media? In this session, we will look at how smartphones affect our relationships, how we think, and how to develop good technology habits.

(10:30 & 2) Breakout Sessions:
– Dr. Titus Kennedy {Archaeologist/Author} – Archaeology and Joshua: Myth, Legend, or History? (10:30AM): Over the last several decades, archaeologists have uncovered extensive evidence for the narratives in the book of Joshua, demonstrating that the conquest of Canaan recorded in the Bible was not mythological propaganda, but a series of important historical events verified by archaeological discoveries.
Roy Swart {Founder/President The Ambassadors Forum} What Apologetics Can Learn from Science (2PM): Learn how science can help us understand and explain our faith to others, with examples from a high-tech career and many practical applications.

(12:35) General Session #4: Prof. Sean McDowell {Apologist/Author/Professor} – If God Why Evil?: The problem of evil and suffering is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges raised against God. Christians must respond empathetically, but also with truth. Sean begins this session by providing a helpful road map for personally helping people who are suffering. He then tackles the intellectual challenge of evil, showing that the existence of evil itself is actually a positive proof for the existence of God, and that the so-called “problem of evil” does not pose a trenchant problem for the Christian faith.
