Join Biola's Christian Apologetics department and Women in Apologetics for the 3rd Annual Women in Apologetics Conference on January 24 & 25 at Biola University! Women in Apologetics exists to encourage, equip, and educate women in Christian apologetics, so in order to continue this mission, this year's conference theme is "Find Your Voice!" Our goal is to help you find your voice to address the issues, doubts, and questions that we all encounter from our family, friends, colleagues, and culture as a whole. Join us for an exciting two-day conference featuring keynote speakers Jo Vitale (RZIM), Alycia Wood (RZIM), Jean E Jones (co-author of the Discovering the Bible series), and Hillary Morgan Ferrer (Mama Bear Apologetics). We will have also 12 engaging breakout sessions and Christian music artist, Aryn Michelle, leading us in worship. We hope to see you there!
