2018 Women in Apologetics Conference

Within the Church there are passionate women of God who serve, worship, and love God with all their hearts. Yet, many Christian women neglect loving God with their minds. God desires for us to love Him with our whole being and experience a deeper relationship with Him. This is why you should join Women in Apologetics as we host our first apologetics conference–in partnership with Biola University’s Apologetics Department, Intelligent Faith, and Mama Bear Apologetics. We will wrestle with the tough questions and help equip you to minister to doubting skeptics and struggling Christians. Think apologetics is just for men? Think again! It’s time for women to join the conversation.

We are still in the planning stages but mark your calendars because more details will be posted here soon!
