The guys at Bridge Ministries are back with their brand new venture – a website filled with video based apologetics resources for Young People. And the extra good news? They’re all completely free!
Check out their introductory video here.
Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
The Road aims to see young people encounter the truth about Jesus, grow in confidence in their faith and be equipped to share their faith with others. We hope it is useful for young people who have little to no knowledge of Jesus but are looking for a place to start, young people wanting to ‘read up’ on their faith and as a tool for young people wanting to share their faith with others.
Why not… Point your young people in the direction of the site? Run a series of sessions around the biggest, trickiest questions of faith? Have a watch for yourself?
Facing conflict can be extremely difficult in our culture. Technology allows us to approach issues from afar, deciding when and how involved we want to be. If I don’t like a situation I can simply choose not to respond. More and more communication is via email, text, and social media that there’s a danger in losing the gift of communication like Jesus modelled – in person.
‘Peacemakers’ is a new course specifically tailored for 18-30 year olds to equip and empower in how to face conflict in today’s culture. Led by Acorn Trainers, Jennie Fytche and Rob Shipman, those participating will explore what happens in times of conflict, and be taught how to find appropriate and Biblical mechanisms of handling ‘difference’ before it becomes destructive.
We are excited to be offering 40 free spaces to participants between 18-30yrs!
24th September 2016 at Whitehill Chase, Bordon. 10am – 4pm.
