Why are You a Christian?

Why aren't you a Mormon, Jehovah's Witness, or Muslim? A big part of evangelism is loving people enough to answer the honest questions they have about your Christian convictions. Join us for this one-day training session and start to become equipped with an understanding of the truthfulness of Christianity, a basic understanding of what some other religions believe, and some tools to help you more effectively share the Gospel with those caught in false religions. The sessions will be informative, interactive, and practical.

Presented by T.E.A.M.

T.E.A.M. (Truth, Evangelism, and Apologetics Mission) is the missions/outreach arm of Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES). It consists of SES students, alumni, and faculty who are both training and willing to go wherever invited to help others think well about reality and the truthfulness of Christianity. Given our T.E.A.M. members' various backgrounds and expertise, you will be well equipped and even glean from some first-hand experience of being part of, and witnessing to those trapped in, false religions. Learn more about how T.E.A.M. can serve you.


The cost is $7.00 p/person (plus a small processing fee). Lunch will be provided. Groups are welcome to attend, and please invite your friends. REGISTRATION HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL 6:00PM ON FRIDAY, MARCH 3. WALK-IN REGISTRATION WILL BE AVAILABLE VIA CHECK OR CREDIT CARD ONLY.
