Roadtrip to ReTHINK Apologetics Conference

Stand to Reason

Date: Mar. 02, 2018 - Mar. 03, 2018

Location: Allen, Texas

Ideas have consequences. The ideas that you think are true will ultimately play themselves out in the way that you live. Every. Single. Day. We all live at the mercy of our ideas. That’s why the apostle Paul warns us not to be taken captive by the false views of the world (Colossians 2:8).

Sadly, many Christians have been captured by the culture. Their thinking reflects the thinking of the society. Their worldview is no different from that of their unbelieving friends.

Stand to Reason Student Impact exists to provoke a new generation to rethink their worldview, recapture the truth, and then reengage the world for the cause of Christ. That’s why we’re putting on the reTHINK Apologetics Student Conference, designed for junior high, high school and college-aged students. And that’s why you need to be there.

Join Ratio Christi at SHSU, Faith Lutheran Church, and1800 youth at this year's ReTHINK Conference in Dallas, TX on March 2nd and 3rd.
