What did the Apostle Paul do when Pre-Christian Europe was pagan, relativistic, and pluralistic? He did apologetics. With the Jews, Paul argued from the Old Testament Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ. With the Greeks, he used their literature and cultural artifacts to argue that the "unknown God" has been revealed. In every context Paul persuasively communicate the Gospel.
Europe in the 21st century is in a state very similar to Paul's time. Just as Paul engaged non-believers where they were, Europe today needs gifted apologists and evangelists who can persuasively communicate that Christianity is true and relevant.
The Online Apologetics Leadership Seminar will provide an overview of the importance and strategy of apologetics and give leaders strategies to more persuasively communicate the Gospel. The seminar will be led by Stefan Gustavsson, and Andy Banister, two of Europe’s influential apologists, and will take place on Saturday 19th June 15.00-18.00 CEST. Participants should be apologists, evangelists, pastors and leaders that are seeking to learn how to more persuasively communicate the Gospel. If your circumstances permit you, we encourage you to consider hosting the online seminar in your church or a similar facility and invite other leaders from your country to join you to engage in the seminar together. You could plan in extra time to discuss the application of the material to your context with leaders who join you.
