Faith Forum Workshop is an opportunity for Christians to be equipped to do apologetics.
1 Pet. 3:15 tells us always to be "prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you." Apologetics was one of the first disciplines developed by the Christian church. The practice of defending one's faith is as crucial for our culture today as it was back then. At our first Faith Forum Workshop, you will be trained to defend and live out your faith today.
Our speakers include some of Louisiana's best speakers and thinkers in Christian apologetics. We are excited to be featuring Dr. Robert Stewart, Professor of Philosophy and Theology at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Stewart has authored and edited several books and is the general editor of the Studies in Christian Apologetics monograph series from B&H Academic. Our other main speakers include Brandon Nealy, lead pastor of Christ Church, and Aaron Shamp, lead pastor of Redeemer City Church.
