2018 Women in Apologetics Conference: Recap

Thank you to Biola University for hosting our first conference! We are beyond grateful for all of your support and encouragement. Thank you for helping us to equip, encourage, and educate women in Christian apologetics! Below is a recap of our first conference.

WIA KIDS 

Under the excellent leadership of Elizabeth Urbanowicz, we had our first apologetics training day for kids on Saturday, January 20th! Kids in grades 3-6 engaged in a variety of activities that helped them think through what Truth is, how they can learn Truth, and how Truth applies to their lives. During the training students explored questions such as:

— What is Truth?

— Is knowing the truth important?

— What does God’s Word teach us about Truth and lies?How can I figure out what is true?

— Is the Truth true for everyone?

Here are some pictures from the WIA Kids event:

 

 

WORSHIP AND SPECIAL MUSIC 

 

We had a great time being led in worship by Alisa Childers (formerly of ZOEgirl)! We were excited to see women and men praising God in song at our conference.

 

 

  


 

We were thrilled to have Christian artist, Aryn Michelle, perform a few songs from her new concept album The Realest Thing on Saturday, January 20. It was a wonderful post-lunch treat to hear her perform. She has done an amazing job of incorporating thought-provoking apologetics into her beautiful music. Order her CD today!
