The annual EPS Apologetics Conference is back! Join us for the highly anticipated three-day apologetics conference this November! The biggest event in apologetics will be held November 18-20 in Denton, TX. Biola Apologetics is partnering with the Evangelical Philosophical Society (EPS) and Denton Bible Church to bring 30 of the top apologists and philosophers in the world together for the goal of better equipping Christians. By attending this conference you will have the opportunity to learn from the leading Christian scholars of our time such as J.P. Moreland, William Lane Craig, J. Warner Wallace, Gary Habermas, Craig Hazen, and many others.
This is a fantastic time to unpack what it looks like to be a believer in today’s culture. We hope that each individual will gain the knowledge and confidence to have impactful conversations with those they encounter. We hope to build up a new generation of believers to speak the truth of Christianity in love. If you have questions, love apologetics, are doubting your faith or just want to know more, join us on November 18-20 for this year’s EPS Apologetics Conference! Register today to be a part of the movement!
More information coming soon!
