Apologetics. What is it?

I found this definition for the word: apologetics are reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine.

1 Peter 3:15 is a great text to see why apologetics is so important to witnessing to people about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It states, “Always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that you have but do this with gentleness and respect.”

On Friday, March 13 through Sunday, March 15 Worldview Warriors hosted one of the first of many apologetics conferences in Findlay, Ohio. We are planning to host one more conference this fall. In 2021, we will move toward having one conference every quarter for those interested in being ready to give an answer for the hope that they have, encouraging people to do this with gentleness and respect.

We were blessed to have 4 speakers join us for the weekend, and 2 local worship leaders were able to lead attendees in worship as well. Some of the talks shared were, “How to Read the Bible,” “Why the Bible is Important,” and “Science and Thinking Biblically.” We are pleased to share that things went so well, we are announcing our next conference on October 17, 2020 at the same location – the Center for Christian Ministries in Findlay, Ohio. This will be a one-day conference for anyone 14 years old and up. More details about this event will be shared at a later date.

Over this past weekend, a great time was had by all, and we look forward to serving you more in this way in the future. When we decided to start these conference events, we chose to try and keep these as intimate gatherings with 50 people or less in order to dig deeper and grow in the Lord together. Some photos of the event are below.

Over 20 people joined us for this first event and we can unequivocally state that this first conference was a very big success. Some attendees shared with us the following:

  • “The setting was wonderful, and this group was the perfect size and gave me a ‘learning mindset.’”
  • “I liked that this was intergenerational. All ages need to learn.”
  • “I enjoyed it all.”
  • “It helped to reassure me to continue my journey.”
  • “The Table of Nations was so interesting.”
  • “This was intimate but not too uncomfortably cozy.”

As you can see, we had a powerful weekend, and we look forward to having our next conference on October 17.
