Early Bird Rate for 25th Annual Southern Evangelical Seminary National Conference on Christian Apologetics Ends in One Week

With Theme of ‘The God Who Is,’ October Event Will Welcome Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell and Chip Ingram to Equip Christians to Defend Faith

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—The early bird rate for the 25th annual Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, www.ses.edu) National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA) will end in one week on Aug. 1. For a quarter-century, SES’s apologetics conference has provided Christians with the tools, knowledge and motivation to defend their beliefs in a culture that is sometimes hostile toward Christianity.

Featuring well-known apologists and preachers Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell and Chip Ingram, the Oct. 12-13 conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, will focus on the theme of “The God Who Is” and will also welcome other top thinkers, scholars, authors, apologists and scientific minds to address the thousands in attendance.

“Everyone in the SES family is delighted that these renowned speakers will join us for the 25th anniversary of the National Conference on Christian Apologetics,” said SES President and Evangelical leader Dr. Richard Land, who will also serve as a conference speaker. “We stand at a crossroads in our culture, when the defense of faith has perhaps never been more important. This conference will enable attendees to leave motivated and reinvigorated to truly know what they believe, why they believe it, and how to defend and share it with greater confidence and ability.”

SES recently moved to its new campus home in the growing West Ballantyne area of Charlotte, North Carolina. The two-building, 35,000-square-foot campus affords the 26-year-old seminary a new commitment to both on-campus and online learning.

On Aug. 4, the seminary will welcome the community to the open house, dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new campus. The schedule for the day will include the following events:

  • 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.—Prospective Student Open House with lunch provided
  • 1 p.m.—Ribbon Cutting and Dedication Service
  • 1:15 to 3 p.m.—Public Open House and Networking with refreshments and tours

Land will officially cut the ribbon during the ceremony, and he will be joined by SES co-founder Norman Geisler as well as Dr. Hugh Ross, SES adjunct professor and president and founder of Reasons to Believe.

While other schools offer apologetics, SES was the first to be grounded in apologetics throughout all its degree programs. Prospective students at the Aug. 4 open house will hear from SES faculty, staff and alumni about how SES can uniquely equip them to more effectively proclaim and defend the Gospel within ministry. A livestream will also be available. For more information on the open house and to RSVP, click here.
