Tomorrow, February 18, our Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity is hosting a one-day apologetics conference, “Tactics for Sharing the Gospel in a Secular Age.” The first session begins at 9 a.m. You are invited to join us via livestream from the conference web page.
The conference will examine how we can share our faith in a culture that has largely abandoned biblical principles and faith in God. Award-winning writer and best-selling author Greg Koukl will be our featured speaker. He has an extensive U.S. and international apologetics ministry on college campuses. We invite you to join us online for this powerful day of evangelistic equipping. Visit the conference web page for a full schedule and list of sessions and speakers.
We hope you can join in for all or part of this important day.

We want to let you know about an opportunity your student has this spring to learn more about a topic that is frequently in the news, especially as we head into election season.
There’s a disturbing trend among Millennials and Generation Z, who in large numbers believe that socialism is a viable alternative to a free market economy. Without embracing a biblical worldview and the grace of God, humanity’s sinful nature will find a way to abuse any system, but Cedarville’s School of Business Administration (SBA) holds that a free market system is the best option for promoting human flourishing and constraining the worst tendencies of human nature.
The SBA is hosting a speaker series throughout spring semester to address this important and timely topic.Freedom to Flourish: Socialist Dreams, Market Realities
