Truth Matters: Equipping Your Students with a Lifelong Faith

Friday, January 15, 2021
9 a.m. - 12 p.m. & 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. HST

Presented by Summit Ministries

Our post-Christian culture rejects the notion of absolute truth. If someone claims to know the truth, they are often labeled as intolerant. So how do we teach our students the truth of Christianity when the world says that truth is subjective? If we want to equip young students with a lifelong faith, then we must help them think differently about truth.
