Join us March 3-4, 2017 for the Be Ready Conference
Anyone following the headlines today will know that it is hard to talk about our faith in this fast-changing world. Many don't trust the Bible as true and Canadians are becoming more and more secular.
More than ever, Christians need to be ready. We must be prepared to navigate through these challenges and we must learn how to provide biblical answers to our culture's questions as winsome ambassadors for Christ.
Join us at Be Ready 2017! We'll tackle issues ranging from, “Can we trust the Bible?” with Prof. Mike Licona, to gender identity, with Walt Heyer. We'll also have breakout sessions that deal with porn addiction among women, witnessing to Mormons, and the age of the earth (from both an old earth and a young earth perspective).
Reading today's headlines shouldn't intimidate us. Rather, they should encourage us to share the hope that we have in Christ.
Mike Licona has a Ph.D. in New Testament Studies (University of Pretoria), which he completed with distinction. He serves as associate professor in theology at Houston Baptist University. Mike was interviewed by Lee Strobel in his book The Case for the Real Jesus and appeared in Strobel’s video The Case for Christ. He is the author of numerous books including the award-winning The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus, co-authored by Gary Habermas. He has spoken on more than 90 university campuses, and has appeared on dozens of radio and television programs.
Walt Heyer is a former transgender with a passion to help others who regret gender change. Walt travels extensively to share his story of redemption at conferences, churches and universities. Walt has appeared on numerous radio and television shows in the U.S. and Canada. Walt’s articles have been published online and his many books are a welcome resource in understanding the issue.
Jojo equips Christians to be effective ambassadors for Christ for everyday conversations. He has spoken at venues that include Sunday morning services, secular debates on universities and morning chapels at Christian schools. Jojo focuses on practical ways to defend the faith. He teaches Christians how to explain their worldview using tools that non-Christians can understand. For example, he helps audiences think of the right questions to ask non-believers not just the right answers they ought to give.
SHOULD WE TRUST THE NEW TESTAMENT?
Should we trust the New Testament? Why were certain books excluded from the Bible and who made the decision? How certain can we be that the Bible we have today is not a corrupted version of the original? Who wrote the Gospels? In this lecture, Mike Licona wrestles with these questions and provides authentic answers.
SEX CHANGE REGRET: THE STORY OF WALT HEYER
Walt Heyer shares his testimony, recounting his feelings since childhood that he should have been born a girl. As he grew up, he found success. He married a woman, began a family, and built an amazing career. But underneath this veneer, he still felt female. Desperate, he sought out a radical treatment that promised relief, regardless of the cost. But many years later, with the same resolute determination that propelled him to succeed in his career, he relentlessly pursued healing and wholeness, not giving up until he knew without a doubt that he was safe in the arms of Jesus.
GOOD NEWS IN EVERYDAY CONVERSATIONS
Anyone following the news today will know how difficult it is to share biblical truth in our culture. Many doubt the claims of Christ and many are encouraged to leave the Christian faith. But on issues like homosexuality and transgenderism, our challenge is often not about the truthfulness of the gospel but its goodness. In this presentation, Jojo will explain how Christian ambassadors can provide an “apologetic” for the Christian worldview that explains that it is still good news.
