25th Annual SES National Conference on Christian Apologetics

Who is God? What is He like? How can we know? The answers you give to these questions will have a tremendous impact on your worship, disciplship, apologetics, and evangelism. Faulty ideas about God are permeating both the church and the culture. It’s time to get back to the basics of understanding the existence and nature of the God who IS. Marking the 25th year of this annual event, Southern Evangelical Seminary's  National Conference on Christian Apologetics returns to Calvary Church in Charlotte, NC with an all-star lineup of some of the finest Christian minds in the world to explore this incredibly important topic. Join us!

WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?

  1. ​​​​​​​​​​“This was my first NCCA experience, and it was amazing! It really sparked
    a desire to learn more about the truth of the Gospel. I
    ​ hope I can attend next year!”
    – NCCA ATTENDEE
  2. ​​​​​​​​​​​​“This is my second year in attendence, and plan on returning next year. I am a teen Sunday School teacher and like keeping up on trends, such as the big topics and the latest attacks on the Christian faith, and this conference equips me to do this.” – NCCA ATTENDEE
  3. ​​​​​​​​​“I can't say enough good things about this conference; it's a family-affair
    for us each year and bolsters our faith tremendously.”
    – NCCA ATTENDEE
  4. ​​​​​​​​​​​“Changed my life and fine tuned my thinking.”
    – NCCA ATTENDEE
  5. ​​​​​​​​​​​“Amazing! I already want to go next year. Churches should try to take groups, especially youth groups to discover apologetics, cultivate new interest in using apologetic reasoning in evangelism, and strengthen their own faith to withstand the onslaught of our culture.”
    – NCCA ATTENDEE
  6. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​“This was at least my fourth, maybe fifth time attending the NCCA. As with previous conferences, at its conclusion, I was already looking forward to the next year's event. In fact, when the first email announcement arrived in my inbox this summer, I wasted no time signing up.” – NCCA ATTENDEE
  7. ​​​​​​​​​​“Of all the many apologetic conferences at which I speak, the annual sessions every October at Southern Evangelical Seminary are the largest and the most enjoyable.” – GARY HABERMAS

PANEL DISCUSSION: Is the Age of the Earth a Matter of Biblical Authority?
Join old-earth and young-earth affirming scholars from Southern Evangelical, Reasons to Believe, and the Institute for Creation Research as they discuss the relationship between one's view of the creation account and the issues of biblical authority and biblical inerrancy. Can we agree to disagree and still both affirm the authority of God's Word?
