Answering tough questions about God and Christianity
Why does God allow suffering and tragedy? Does science disprove Christianity? Is Jesus really the only way? Why are Christians so hypocritical? Christians throughout the ages have wrestled with questions like these, and chances are, so do you. Having faith isn't always easy. You may not always have the “winning” answer that makes you popular. Sometimes believing the Bible might make you feel like everyone's against you. But it's critical that you don't run from these types of questions.
In these four challenging sessions, students share real-life stories about their own struggles in coming to terms with what Scripture teaches about God, sin, creation and Jesus.
Matt Chandler provides powerful teaching from Scripture and helps teens understand why believing in God and the Bible is not only reasonable, but also essential. And that's what apologetics is all about. Knowing what you believe and why you believe it, and then being able to share with others why you think your beliefs are reasonable.
Joining the Everyday Mission of God
In order to impact the next generation for Christ, we need to intentionally teach our youth the gospel and develop them for the purpose of fulfilling God's mission in the world. This mission goes far beyond the classroom; it's a radical call of obedience and faith—every day of our lives. Followers of Jesus are called to be a sent people, joining God in His mission to take the light of the gospel to the darkness of the world.
In these four inspiring sessions, students share real-life stories about their own struggles with letting the gospel transform their lives and the impact surrendering to Christ has had on those around them. And David Platt and D.A. Horton provide powerful teaching from Scripture that helps teens see how they can intentionally live on mission and fulfill God's ultimate purpose for their lives.
