If you are a pastor or engaged lay person, you will not want to miss the upcoming “Defending the Faith” conference hosted by Tactical Faith ministry and Samford University. The one day event, August 7, includes multiple workshops. One of the keynote presenters will be speaker, writer and Life Training Institute researcher Jay Watts, who will share on the topics of “Apologetics – Defending the Christian Faith” and “Christianity and Culture.”

Having come from an atheist background, Watts understands the struggles that many non-Christians have with faith. “I didn’t grow up a Christian. My path to the Gospel wasn’t set out for me in church youth group or family Bible study. I wandered toward faith following a trail of bread crumbs left for me through reasonable answers to my questions that ultimately guided me to the cross. There is no doubt that this impacts my approach to my job, which centers around addressing the value of human life and the general Christian worldview,” explains Watts, adding, “I see apologetics as both defensive and proactive. In one sense, we are equipped to answer questions that might safeguard against a corrosive form of skepticism. In another, we are able to actively identify and confront injustice in the world around us in a gracious and impacting manner. That is, in a broad sense, what my talks will address.” Watts is a hard-hitting speaker, while at the same time, is winsome and approachable. His specialty is engaging students and young adults with the consequences of their worldview. There are a limited number of seats available for the August 7 “Defending the Faith” event. Registration is $20 for a full day of training and includes lunch. Learn more and register at www.tacticalfaith.com. †
