In today’s society, and as culture rapidly shifts around us, we’re constantly faced with new waves of challenges and conversations that challenge our faith. It is more important than ever for us, as Christians, to find clarity and confidence in what we believe as topics such as, the value of human life, sexual identity and God’s ultimate truth are being questioned.
Unshaken is a conference for youth and young adults (age 13-30 years) designed to ignite the Christian imagination, and empower us to understand why Christianity is not only believable but also desirable. We’re bringing together speakers, artists and performers to explore the tools we need to become salt and light in our spheres of influence. Join us as we explore the hard questions and learn how to navigate culture together!
Joining us for UNSHAKEN ’19 we have, Megan Almon (Life Training Institute, USA), Jason Knapp (Thinking Matters), Neihana Reihana (Oati Trust), and Scott McCulloch (Lifezone), who will help us to engage with the following discussions:
- The Porn Phenomenon: The Impact of Pornography in the Digital Age
- Racial Reconciliation: Healing the Scars of Our History
- Human Value: What the Bible Says About Why We Matter?
- Pure Freedom: How Limits Help Liberate Us
- How Can a Loving God Send People to Hell?
- Culture Sculptors: The Christian’s Call to Shape Culture
- The Battle for Truth: Rethinking the Lies We Believe Without Thinking
- Modern Feminism & Christianity: Are They Compatible Or Conflicting?
