Salt # 2 An Evening Conference About Sharing your Faith

Salt # 2 An Evening Conference About Sharing your Faith

The salt of the earth, and the light of the world! Most of us struggle to live up to these descriptions. It’s not easy to share our faith in Jesus with those around us in our daily lives. What do we say, and how do we say it? And we might wonder if and why we should be speaking about our faith at all. Especially when we live at a time when Christianity seems unpopular in the media and public conversation.

 

This one-night conference is an opportunity to be inspired about our faith and what Jesus offers those who don’t yet know him. We also have some great speakers to equip us with very practical ways of connecting with others over our faith.

Cost$10 Cash at Door or on eventbrite.

Full time students and unemployed free.
