Whether we are at home, in the office, in school, or even in the public place, you will have a sense that the Christian faith is consistently under pressure. Some may be overt, while others come subtly in the form of our personal doubts.
Apologetics, on the other hand, is providing a reason and defense for our faith done in a manner that honors the Lord and that which builds others up. Wherever we may be in this whole spectrum of circumstances, seasons and the sets of faith challenges that we face today, we are inviting all students, young adults and parents of youth to join this workshop!
Our NextGen Ministries will be hosting this event on August 27 (Saturday), 8:00 A.M to 4:00 P.M. This workshop will be facilitated by a good friend, Pastor John Phillip Pesebre. Registration comes with a fee of Php 100.00 (lunch and materials included).
We will be setting up a booth at the ground floor after the worship services, so you can sign up, have a slot reserved for you and settle your payments as early as now. Should you have any question, kindly reach me at +63917.805.0531 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For your reference, our speaker has also provided an outline of “Under Pressure” so you can have a clearer idea of what we will be covering in this workshop. We hope to hear from you, and see you on August 27!
A. Apologetics and Christian Identity
As regular as the pressures on our faith, as overcoming those pressures, this 4-session section focuses on explaining the important place of apologetics in the life of a believer. Special attention is on the idea that apologetics is not just a specialized ministry but a day-to-day Christian way of thinking, especially in times of faith-testing experiences. As such it is a habit that helps the believer mature. Courageous self-investigation that leads to be better self-understanding.
