“Driven By Truth: Worldview Conference” will equip young Christians to defend their faith in the public square.

Noted Southern Baptist leaders will headline the “Driven By Truth: Worldview Conference” at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, March 18-19, 2016.

“Christian faithfulness in this generation means that apologetics is a frontline responsibility for every Christian,” said R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Seminary. “We are looking forward to this conference because of a sense of urgency to help Christians, young and old, understand what it means to defend the faith and to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in us.”

The conference, intended for young adults, will address the fundamental issue of Christians and worldview through four general sessions. Despite competing worldviews which jostle for believers’ attention, “Driven By Truth” will encourage Christians to cultivate a distinctly biblical mindset, according to the conference’s website.

“We want to be very clear that Christian apologetics is driven by truth, and specifically by the total truthfulness of God’s Word,” Mohler said. “So we’re going to look at how this culture subverts truth and how this challenges Christians to be a people of truth in the midst of a post-Christian age.”

The main sessions will feature leading Baptist thinkers Mohler; Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission; Dan DeWitt, dean of Boyce College; and Gregory Thornbury, president of The King’s College in New York City.

Attendees will also attend one of six breakout sessions, which will be presented by Southern Seminary figures Mark T. Coppenger, Timothy Paul Jones, Ayman Ibrahim, Jim Stitzinger, Bryan Baise, and Denny Burk. Norton Hall Band will perform the music at the conference.

All breakout sessions will be streamed live at sbts.edu/live and archived afterward at sbts.edu/resources. For more information, and to register for the conference, visit events.sbts.edu/drivenbytruth.
