Featuring Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell

There is a storm building. The winds of change have made navigation nearly impossible. What ground is there to stand upon? In a post-truth culture, how can the claims of Christianity anchor us?

There's so much confusion around questions about life, meaning, morality, and purpose. Ultimately, these questions are questions about God. As the tides of popular opinion change and more pressure is placed upon Christians to find their place in a pluralistic society, it is all the more essential for Christians to know what they believe, and why they believe it.

At the 2019 ReGeneration Forum, Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell will help us navigate this storm and anchor ourselves in Jesus! Join us and develop the confidence you need as you follow the one who is TRUE!

Sat, Nov 9, 2019
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM (Registration, 8:30 AM)
Starting at $15
Main 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
Why Believe?  
intelligent & rationale reasons for belief in Jesus and the Bible

This year’s theme will show that there are intelligent and rationale reasons for belief in Jesus and the Bible. This is all the more important for us living in the San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area which has been identified as one of the most unchurched and least Bible-minded areas in the United States.

Dan Kimball is on staff at Vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz, CA. Dan is the Director of the ReGeneration Project with Western Seminary. He has written several books on next generation church and leadership including the forthcoming Crazy Bible? (Zondervan). He is married to Becky and has two daughters Katie and Claire.

Truth
True For You, But Not True For Me

We no longer live in a world where most people believe what the Bible says is true. It’s the opposite today where there are so many differing beliefs and opinions with sources that claim to be the true way regarding major issues of life, meaning and spirituality. Today, people often say “That may be your truth and true for you, but it’s not my truth and what I believe.”

You will learn about:
  • Is it wrong and arrogant to think that the Bible and Christianity is the one true truth?
  • Is it OK to have different truths as long as we love each other?
  • How do we respond to those who claim Christianity is arrogant
