Evangelical Seminary Announces ‘Why Truth Still Matters’ as Theme for Apologetics Conference Oct. 11-12 in Charlotte
Plenary Speakers and Lineup for 2019 National Conference on Christian Apologetics Set
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—In a culture becoming increasingly more relativistic and secular, Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, www.ses.edu) wants the faithful to know that truth does indeed still matter.
For the upcoming National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA), set for Oct. 11-12 in Charlotte, SES is focusing on the theme of “Why Truth Still Matters” and welcoming some of the nation’s top apologetics speakers.
For 26 years, SES’s annual conference, attended by thousands, has provided Christians with the tools, knowledge and motivation to defend their beliefs in a culture that is sometimes hostile toward Christianity.
“Truth does still matter, regardless of what we witness on a daily basis in the culture,” said SES President and Evangelical leader Dr. Richard Land, who will also serve as a conference speaker. “We look forward to again being at our longtime host site, Calvary Church, and welcoming the nation’s best thinkers, scholars, authors, apologists and scientific minds who will address the thousands in attendance.
“Also at the conference in October, a special tribute is planned for our co-founder and international apologetics leader Dr. Norman Geisler, who recently retired from his teaching duties. The SES Board of Trustees also voted unanimously to grant Dr. Geisler the title of ‘President Emeritus’ and to rename the SES graduate school ‘The Norman L. Geisler School of Apologetics,’” Land added. “All of us in the SES family believe that this is an appropriate and fitting way of honoring Dr. Geisler and his legacy in a more permanent fashion.
“I want to personally invite all of those who have been impacted by Dr. Geisler’s ministry to come and share with us as we celebrate his ministry.”
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 also planned. Additional speakers will be announced in the coming months.
“This is a fantastic conference!” said a past attendee. “If you don’t leave this conference equipped to defend the faith, then you didn’t pay attention or must have slept in. I strongly recommend this conference to both church leaders and laypersons alike.”
