Confident Christianity Conference

Do you find the thought of talking about Jesus to friends, neighbours, classmates or colleagues daunting? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking “what if I say something that makes God look bad?” Or wondering what happens if they raise a challenging question or objection to which you’re unable to respond. (“Aren’t Christians bigoted and homophobic?”; “Isn’t the Bible unreliable and full of errors?”; “Hasn’t science buried God?”; “Isn’t religion just a psychological crutch?” … and the list goes on).

Well, you’re not alone! In the fast-paced, skeptical and secular culture in which we live, most of us find evangelism a bit daunting. That’s why we are hosting Solas to bring Confident Christianity conference to Aberdeen. We’ve got Andy Bannister and Michael Ots joining us who will help you become confident and empowered to talk about Jesus more naturally, engage in evangelism that persuades people, and feel equipped to answer the questions of your friends.

As the popular evangelist J John once said: “Many times Christians are like arctic rivers. They have frozen mouths.” Come along to a Confident Christianity conference and de-thaw!

Lunch not provided, but there is a Tesco next door with Costa.
