BE READY for the next generation

 
 

Anyone following the headlines today will know that it is becoming more difficult for Christians in Canada to hold on to their Christian beliefs without it costing them something. And the challenge is only going to be that much greater for the next generation.

More than ever, Christians need to be ready to navigate through the challenges thrown at them by the culture – but not only for themselves. They must also be ready to protect others, especially the next generation, from the false and destructive ideas that are so widespread today.

Be Ready 2018 is a conference aimed at equipping Christians of all generations to represent Christ with confidence, and to uphold their Christian convictions in the public square with gentleness and respect.

Keynote Speakers: Josh McDowell, Sean McDowell, Scott Klusendorf

 
 
 

Good Friday 2018

Dr. Brian Miller: Evidence for Design in Nature

Advances in physics, biology, and other science disciplines are increasingly pointing to evidence that the universe and life are the products of intelligent design. For instance, physicist and origins expert Paul Davies has argued that any fundamental understanding of the origin of life must start with the origin of information, and internationally recognized organic chemist James Tour has argued that all theories for the origin of life are completely implausible. Dr. Miller will speak about this growing body of evidence for intelligent design in nature, and he will describe why leading biologists are rejecting the idea that the appearance of design in biology can be explained by Darwinian evolution. Dr. Miller has a B.S. in physics from MIT and a Ph.D. in physics from Duke University.

Dr. Brian Miller: Communicating the Christian Faith

Dr. Brian Miller, from the Origins Institute, will discuss how to respectfully explain the Christian faith to friends, family, and coworkers. He will also describe how to handle common questions and to present an intellectual defense for its truth.

Oregon Student Trip 2018

This February, we are taking a group of students to Corvallis, Oregon, where we will connect with our greater Every Nation family at the Student Conference, and then stay on to serve alongside our ENC (Every Nation Campus) family on the Oregon State University campus. We’re excited to experience the presence of God with our extended ENC family, and to see our students grow in confidence as they learn new ways of reaching out to fellow students to talk about God and share their faith.

Please consider partnering with us to support these students as they go! For specific sponsorship, please enter the Student’s Name in the memo field on the giving form.

 

 

 

Corporate Fasting Week

  • Categories: Featured
  • Date published:

Every year we gather together with Every Nation churches around the world to partake in a corporate fast.  This year, our fast is taking place January 8-12, 2018.  

We encourage you to slow down and make space in your calendar to gather together with others during this week, to pray together, listen together and allow God to move in our lives through one another.

This year’s fasting guide is based on the book of Ephesians, and it includes practical advice if this is your first time fasting, as well as daily reflections to focus on while you fast. You can find an online copy of the fasting guide here.
