Dr. Alex McFarland and North Greenville University Hosting Youth Apologetics Camp Next Month
With Theme of ‘My Whole Life For His Whole Plan,’ July 22-26 Camp Will Focus on Spiritual Growth and Developing a Rock-Solid Faith
GREENSBORO, N.C.—Religion and culture expert, national radio host and author Dr. Alex McFarland is gearing up to host the annual Youth Apologetics Camp in conjunction with North Greenville University (NGU) in Greenville, South Carolina.
With the theme of “My Whole Life For His Whole Plan,” the July 22-26 camp in Tigerville for seventh- through 12th-graders will focus on spiritual growth, fun and adventure, developing a rock-solid faith and pursuing creative friendships.
“If there was ever a time for young people to know how to defend their faith, it is now,” said McFarland, who is also Director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at the Christian Worldview Center at NGU. “Just 4 percent of millennials have a biblical worldview, and we want to change that. This camp geared toward high schoolers will help them to know what they believe and why they believe it—at one of the most important turning points of their lives.”
Camp session topics include: “Why This Conference and Why Me?,” “Can You Trust the Word of God?,” “Ancient Evidence for the Life, Death and Resurrection of Christ,” “Creation versus Evolution: The Facts and Why It Matters,” “Is Jesus Christ Really God,” “How Christians Should Respond to the LGBTQ Agenda” and “How To Study and Understand Word of God.” Breakout sessions will also focus on “How Culture and College Will Challenge Your Faith,” “Why Life is Precious and Why Our Pro-abortion Culture is Crumbling,” “Understanding and Applying What God’s Word Says About Gender,” “Theodicy: If God is so Good Why is the Word so Bad?” and “Reconciling the Goodness of God with the Reality of Hell.”
Besides the 15 apologetic/worldview training sessions, activities include a field trip and behind-the-scenes tour of the Billy Graham Center, meetings with NGU faculty members and mentors, and outdoor activities and games.
In addition to McFarland, speakers include NGU Vice President for Student Life & Christian Worldview Dr. Tony Beam, Dr. Gene Fant, Dr. Ken Hemphill, Alexander Hamilton III, Lisa Van Riper, Dr. Walter Johnson, Dr. Greg Bruce, Dr. Larry McDonald and more.
Cost is $249 per person, with meals and lodging included. For more information, call (864) 977-2008 or visit www.ngu.edu/apologetics-camp.php. Space is limited.
