Who's waiting for your students? When they leave the relative safety of your home, youth ministry or church, who is waiting for them at school, the university, in the culture or at their workplace? What contrary ideas will they encounter, what challenges to Christianity will they face? And are they ready?
According to the National Study of Youth and Religion, the typical Christian kid does not know what they believe or why they believe it. In the words of the researchers, our students are "incredibly inarticulate about their faith." In other words, they're prime targets for an aggressive secular culture looking to take them captive with false ideas (Colossians 2:8). Stand to Reason wants to partner with YOU to change that. That's why we've put together the Rethink Conference for junior high, high school, and college students, this coming October 25 & 26, in Orange County, California.
I'd love to sit with you, give you a vision for the conference, and answer your questions, so we've also put together a special pre-conference luncheon on Tuesday, June 4, from 11:30 AM until 1:00 PM, at Crossline Community Church (address: 23331 Moulton Parkway, Laguna Hills, CA 92653). The luncheon is for youth leaders, Christian educators, pastors, parents, campus leaders, and anyone else who works with students. Of course, the catered lunch is our treat. In addition, you'll receive a free signed copy of the new book, Cold Case Christianity, by homicide detective J. Warner Wallace, one of our conference speakers. So don't miss out.
We just need to know by Friday, May 31st, if you'll be able to join us. Please RSVP with Dawnielle Hodgman at firstname.lastname@example.org. And please, pass the word along and invite other leaders.
I can't wait to partner with you, to raise up a new generation of students who will stand confidently and graciously for the truth of Jesus Christ.
