"Where can you find a line-up of world-class scholars like those
at the EPS annual apologetics conference? I often go to just sit

ministry of the Evangelical Philosophical Society. Through them

faith, but also to commend it with passion, conviction, and proper
humility. I am excited to be a part of such an important endeavor
to build up the Church of Jesus Christ."
