It is an honor to partner with Christian schools for one of the greatest responsibilities of our day which is to train Christian students in how to defend their faith. We are called as Christian educators to not only understand the Christian worldview, but also defend it. According to 1 Peter 3:15, we are called to always be “prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.” Many Christian schools are doing a fine job in training students in the Christian worldview, but that is not enough. We need them to not only know what they believe, but WHY they believe it. If your school is not currently offering an apologetics course to your students, this conference can help you prepare a course, develop curriculum, locate and adopt resources, and assist in fulfilling the call of 1 Peter 3:15.

We want to invite you, your Bible staff, and other key faculty, teachers, or administrators of your school to attend our Apologetics Educational Initiative training conference on January 22-23, 2018. You will walk away with a specific plan of how to establish an Apologetics course in your Bible sequence of classes. You will learn that Apologetics is different than worldview training and is necessary in this increasingly hostile culture towards Christianity. Apologetics has been part of the Prestonwood Christian Academy for over fifteen years and is one of the most remembered courses by students and alumni.

ACSI CEU’s available.
You must provide VPP# at registration!
