Watch For :
|:: Apologetics Workshops/Seminars ::|
In May, 2009, Village Baptist Church hosted its first Regional Christian Apologetics Conference. Two groups played an valuable role in making it a success. “Truth, Evangelism, Apologetics Mission” (TEAM) and “Ratio Christi: A Student Apologetics Alliance,” provided direction and speakers for our event.
From time to time, we will be inviting speakers to work with “Living Out Acts: Student Apologetics/Evangelism” to speak to our students in our VCA chapels and speak to this apologetics group. In addition, we hope to offer seminars and classes for Village Baptist Church.
|:: Bible Studies for Skeptics ::|
We’ve aleady started our student apologetics/evangelism group, “Living Out Acts.” In 2010, we’d like to have a group of men and women who are willing to be trained to engage skeptics in bible studies. Those interested will learn how to defend their faith and answer tough questions from skeptics in an effort to lead them to Christ.
|:: Campus Outreach ::|
Over the next year, we’ll be working on an effective strategy to combine street evangelism with bible studies for skeptical college students on campuses where faith is under constant assault. It will be a perfect opportunity for our student apologists/street evangelists as well as adult members of our church.

Coming to “Living Out Acts” in 2010…
(From TrueU’s website)
“TrueU is a DVD-based apologetics curriculum. Dr. Del Tackett, architect and voice of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project®, describes this endeavor this way:
‘Produced by Focus on the Family in conjunction with Coldwater Media, TrueU is an apologetics training series primarily geared to help prepare high school students for the rigorous challenges and attacks that will confront them on the university campus. My guess is that it will end up benefiting a whole lot more folks than just high school seniors.’
It is important to clarify that TrueU is not “The Truth Project for teens.” As envisioned by Dr. Tackett and our staff, TrueU will be, in essence, a series of “prequels” (or lead-in studies) to The Truth Project. (See the FAQ below, about TrueU’s format, for some important information regarding the lessons’ complexity).
TrueU is designed primarily to help students solidify their Christian faith with foundational apologetics training. This will equip young people to stand strong in the university environment, and also serve as a precursor to the in-depth study presented in The Truth Project of how to live out a Christian worldview in everyday life.
We would encourage those who complete TrueU to immediately join a Truth Project small group, if possible, and continue exploring the practical day-to-day application of a biblical worldview.”
