For 25 years, Southern Evangelical Seminary has stood on the joint pillars of apologetics and evangelism. In focusing on equipping men and women to pursue a faith that thinks, the SES National Conference on Christian Apologetics was born with the purpose of equipping the church with some of the wonderful training that occurs at the seminary.
As SES celebrates its 25th anniversary, we corporately acknowledge the continued need for Christ followers to be prepared to both proclaim and defend the Gospel. Spiritual warfare is by and large a war of ideas (2 Cor. 10:3-5), and believers cannot afford to be ill-equipped. This October, learn from some of the world’s leading Christian thinkers, and experience some of the new and exciting things that are planned for the 2017 NCCA.
