Christianity & the Culture Conference – March 1-2, 2013

On March 1st and 2nd, the first Christianity and the Culture (C&C) Conference will be held in Northern New Jersey.  The content and speakers come from Worldview Academy, and the sessions will be held at First Baptist Church of Hackensack.  North Jersey Home School Association (NJHSA) has provided key financial support to make the event happen.

What is C&C you ask?

Worldview Academy’s Christianity & Culture Conferences bring nationally-known and gifted faculty to your church for a series of lectures and breakout sessions designed to address culture issues in the light of Scripture. Worldview Academy, the national leader in worldview training, presents personalized conferences that will inspire, challenge and encourage your families to stand for truth in an ever-changing culture.

The program will feature a Friday evening session and several sessions throughout the day on Saturday.  Thee professional speakers will be on site to deliver challenging and informative content.  The speakers inlcude: Randy Sims, Jeff Baldwin, and Paul Jordan

My sons, Stephen and Josh, have attended Worldview Academy the past three summers and found it to be a wonderful experience.

There will be a small entry fee associated with this event; I’ll have more information a little later. It will start at 6:30 PM on Friday, the first of March, and end for the night at 10. Starting up again at 9:00 AM, 8:30 if you want to socialize or ask the speakers questions, and end at 5:00 PM, a full two days to be sure, but worth every minute.

A Facebook event page has been created to share information about the event — I’d encourage you to visit this link from time to time:  http://www.facebook.com/#!/events/462805107114588/
