August 1 Early Bird Deadline for Southern Evangelical Seminary’s ‘Why Truth Still Matters’ Apologetics Conference This October
Past Attendees Call National Conference on Christian Apologetics an ‘Accessible Crash Course That Will Sharpen the Mind of the Established Christian Apologist’ and the ‘Best Conference I’ve Ever Been To’
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—The Aug. 1 early bird deadline for Southern Evangelical Seminary’s (SES, www.ses.edu) annual apologetics conference is just over six weeks away, and many longtime attendees make the event a yearly destination each fall, while new attendees discover and delight in SES’s National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA) year after year.
For 26 years, thousands have attended the NCCA set this year for Oct. 11-12 at Calvary Church in Charlotte. For the 2019 event, SES is focusing on the theme of “Why Truth Still Matters” and is welcoming some of the nation’s top apologetics speakers. For over a quarter-century, SES’s annual conference has provided Christians with the tools, knowledge and motivation to defend their beliefs in a culture that is sometimes hostile toward Christianity.
“The theme for this year’s Southern Evangelical Seminary National Conference on Christian Apologetics was very intentional—and is extremely timely,” said SES President and Evangelical leader Dr. Richard Land, who will also serve as a conference speaker. “We again look forward to welcoming some of the nation’s best thinkers, scholars, authors, apologists and scientific minds who will address the thousands in attendance.”
Besides Land, plenary speakers at the 2019 conference this fall will include Michael Brown, Alisa Childers, Gary Habermas, Chip Ingram, Stephen Meyer, Jeff Myers, Hugh Ross and Frank Turek. A dialog titled “What Does It Mean to Say the Bible Is Inerrant?” between Richard Howe and Mike Licona is on the schedule as well. A special tribute to SES co-founder Dr. Norman Geisler, who recently announced his teaching retirement, is also planned.
A past conference attendee called the premier event “an accessible crash course that will sharpen the mind of the established Christian apologist or open the floodgates for the curious newbie,” while another exclaimed, “Best conference I’ve ever been to!”
Tickets for the 2019 NCCA are on sale now, with early bird pricing ending Aug. 1. Ticket add-ons such as a free prospective student luncheon and the “Reasons to Believe VIP Experience” are also available. For more information or to register, visit conference.ses.edu.
