“More churches, youth groups, schools, and ministries are interested in apologetics and outreach related events. However, popular Christian apologetics and evangelism tends to focus on a narrow list of questions, answers, assumptions, and propositions. Instead of offering canned events packed with answers to the questions we hope people are asking, the team at ReThink315 will help you to identify and address the questions your people are actually asking. Our approach to event partnering is both consultative and creative because every group is unique.”

–Jeremy R. Smith

Contact us here or below for details and availability. 

ReThink Christian Apologetics and Evangelism
Description: The “Rethink Christian Apologetics and Evangelism” seminar unpacks and demystifies the terms “apologetics” and “evangelism” and encourages Christians to relate to others not as salespeople, stuffy academics, or adversarial debaters, but as loving neighbors. While loving your neighbor generally and evangelism specifically will often include answering tough questions and addressing deep doubts, Jeremy suggests you don’t have to be an acclaimed academic or a skilled debater to engage in meaningful conversations. 

ReThink Your Personal Testimony
Description: The “Rethink Your Personal Testimony” seminar highlights Jeremy’s unique and unlikely conversion experience and emphasizes the strength of your personal testimony as a type of evidence for the Christian faith. Loving your neighbor, Jeremy suggests, often includes sharing your personal testimony as a precursor to the gospel. However, there are a few pitfalls we Christians need to avoid when sharing our testimony to make sure Jesus is the focus, not us, and to be sure redemption is the promised gift, not a comfortable and easy life.
