Think Well

A Worldview & Apologetics Conference

Christianity is a faith of the heart and the mind. Part of the Greatest Commandment is to love the Lord with all our minds; Romans 12:2 says we are to be "transformed by the renewing of our minds." Despite this emphasis on the mind and reason, some have called our age the most anti-intellectual in church history. Teens in particular face a dual challenge as they enter some of their most formative years. 

As they prepare for high school, college, and adulthood, Christian teens need to be prepared to "contend for the faith," first in their own hearts, and then in their families, peer circles, schools, workplaces, and the public square. We need a revival of both hearts and minds within the next generation. We need today's teens to be able to think well and deeply about their faith, to know what they believe, why they believe it, and how to integrate their faith with every aspect of their lives.

Helping the Next Generation Think Well


July 11, 2016, 6:30 p.m., at CrossLife

Aimed at pastors, youth pastors, parents, and others who work with young people

In conjunction with, but separate from, the Think Well Conference, CrossLife is hosting an evening with Del Tackett and AXIS (apologetics ministry) aimed at pastors, youth pastors, parents, and anyone who interacts with teens and young people on a regular basis (or want to be equipped to do so!). This session will focus on how you, as an influencer of young people, can lead others (whether a congregation, classroom, small group, or your own families) to think well about the issues of our day from a Christ-centered, biblical worldview. The evening will feature about an hour of speaking followed by a time of Q&A.

You do NOT need to register for the Monday event. The event is free, with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
