GPTS Recommends Youth Worldview Conference


Greenville Seminary is pleased once again to endorse the Biblical Worldview Student Conference (BWSC) held annually at Milligan College near Johnson City, Tenn. This year’s conference will be held June 3-8. Sponsored by Westminster Presbyterian Church in Kingsport, Tenn., the conference is designed to train young men and women for leadership roles in society and the church.

WHY A WORLDVIEW CONFERENCE?

“Christian students know life is more than fun and games,” say conference organizers. “They need and
welcome access to answers to life’s issues through God’s wisdom. Increasingly the favorite sport of many college professors and those speaking loudest in society is to ridicule the Christian faith and its application to all of life. Through the BWSC, Christian young people will be better trained to be discerning, thoughtful, ready and able to handle the intellectual warfare of a culture increasingly hostile to Christianity. God’s Spirit is working to prepare the next generation to use God’s Word toward building God-honoring change in the world.”

Each year, outstanding instructors with the gift of communication challenge students. Their desire is to equip and encourage youth, not only with answers of truth, but a life walk abiding in the Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ. The keynote speaker for this year is Dr. Joel Beeke, who will be speaking on “Living Fully for Christ.” Also speaking is Douglas Bond, author of more than 20 books, including many acclaimed works of historical fiction. Sye Ten Bruggencate is an Christian apologist from Ontario, Canada, who runs the website  www.proofthatgodexists.org and will be lecturing on engaging unbelievers. Dr.Del Bailey will speak on medical ethics. Also on the speaker roster is Matt Bell, associate editor at Sound Mind Investing, a Christian company providing biblical counsel on a range of financial topics and investment advice.

“Students profit through personal interaction with instructors and fellowship with those their own age from across North America,” says Debby Bailey, assistant to the conference director. “Quality friendships are formed that will last a lifetime.”
