Why believe Christianity is true?
Why believe the Bible is credible?
Why believe the resurrection happened?

In movies, comic books, television shows – we see the afterlife, heaven, hell, demons, Satan and angels referred to all the time. However, how much does the Bible align with how these things are described?

The annual ReGeneration Forum is a day to get together and examine some of the tough questions of faith and the importance of the Bible today. Featuring main sessions featuring John Ortberg, Joshua Ryan Butler, Zach Bolen from the band Citizens, and many others.

Join us for the largest next generation gathering in the Bay Area!

About the speakers

As a young man, Josh McDowell considered himself an agnostic. He truly believed that Christianity was worthless. However, when challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling and overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. After trusting in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, Josh’s life changed dramatically as he experienced the power of God’s love. After his conversion, Josh committed his life to telling a doubting world about the truth of Jesus Christ. After studying at Kellogg College, Josh completed his college degree at Wheaton College and then attended Talbot Theological Seminary, graduating magna cum laude with a Masters of Divinity. Working with Campus Crusade for Christ and founding the youth outreach, Josh McDowell Ministry, Josh has shared the gospel with more than 25 million people in 125 countries. He is the author or co-authored of 147 books.

Dr. Sean McDowell is a gifted communicator with a passion for equipping the church, especially young people, to make the case for the Christian faith. He connects with audiences through humor and stories while imparting hard evidence and logical support of a biblical worldview. Sean is an assistant professor in Biola University’s Christian Apologetics program and the resident scholar for Summit California. A regular speaker for organizations like Focus on the Family, the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, and Youth Specialties, among others, Sean is the author, co-author, or editor of over eighteen books and is a frequent guest on radio shows like Family Life Today and Point of View.

Topics
Ghosts, Reincarnation, Judgment
and other questions about what happens the moment we die

There are so many ideas out there about what happens the moment we die. In this lab we will explore some of the most commonly believed thoughts and compare them to what the Scriptures say.

You will learn about:
  • What happens right when you die?
  • Is reincarnation true?
  • Are ghosts real?
  • What should we think of NDE (Near Death Experiences)?
  • Are we judged after we die, do people get a second chance?
  • Are there rewards in heaven?
  • And your questions as well.

Chris Nye is a pastor, writer, and professor. He will walk through these questions as well as any ones that you have. Eternity is a long time and it’s good to search the Bible to see what it really says.

Satan, Demons, Exorcisms
and Other Scary Sounding Things: what is true and what is fiction?

Discussing anything related to Satan, demons, and exorcisms is a very sensitive topic. You often don’t hear much teaching about it. This is the very reason why we are devoting time to this sensitive topic.

You will learn about:
  • Who is Satan? Where did he come from?
  • What are demons?
  • Can demons hurt Christians? Should we be afraid of them?
  • Are exorcisms real?
  • And your questions as well.

Dr. Gerry Breshears, a trusted professor and Bible scholar, has studied and explored these topics for many years. He is highly respected for not being extreme and screening topics through the lens of Scripture.
