Learning outcomes:

These short, high-impacting seminars will look at the major modern-day objections non-Christians have towards the Bible and Christian faith. Topics will include: Religious Violence, Exclusive Faith, Abuse in the Church, Homosexuality, and your questions.

The church across western nations is struggling to stay connected to our wider culture. This has occurred for several reasons; shift in western culture, shift in church focus and a failure to connect with our culture. These seminars will address these issues.

At the evening public meetings, Karl will discuss New Zealand’s changing definition of marriage and the Christian response insofar as a Biblical, sexual ethic is concerned. This talk will be very helpful to all who attend, especially young adults.
