Has your teen had their faith questioned by peers, classmates, or co-workers? As homeschool parents, our responsibility is not to insulate them from life; rather, we must be very intentional in equipping them for the inevitable challenges that they will face—it’s not a matter of if they will face challenges, but when.
Aren’t the exclusive claims of Christianity intolerant and oppressive? Indeed, the majority of Christians don’t believe that Jesus is the only way to God. So not only is Jesus’ claim that He is the way, the truth and the life controversial “out there” in the world, but also “in here” in the church. However, this claim is absolutely essential to the Christian life. We’ll look at some of the common objections to the exclusivity of Christ’s claims and then show why Jesus is the only way to God.
Everyone doubts—it's part of being human. But doubt regarding God must be dealt with before it becomes destructive. To face the issue of our doubt head on, first we must identify the three different causes of doubt—intellectual, emotional and moral—and then we'll be able to deal with it in helpful ways. Ultimately we’ll see how doubt can actually be a tool God uses to lead us into a deeper faith.

Massey Campos | Self-Evident Ministry
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." The first two are fairly self-evident, however the third tends to bring questions. This session will pull away the confusion, and provide a clear answer to what the founding fathers meant when writing, "The Pursuit of Happiness." Using the founders own writings and quotes, Massey will show that the common understanding of the term is in-fact a misconception.
The term "Separation of Church and State" has been blanketed over every issue of religion in the public sphere, and thrown up by critics as a blockade against religious expression. Along with the history of the statement, Mr. Campos will present the dangers of continuing this misrepresentation of Thomas Jefferson's famous words, and the proper relationship between God and the American government.
In an effort to achieve safety, Americans increasingly wish to give more control over everyday affairs to the government. But when does it become too much?

How often have you heard that "Roe v Wade" is law? How often have people talked about how abortion is legal, or that it is the law of the land? What if we were to tell you it isn't legal? In this session, Mr. Campos will teach the truth about Roe v. Wade and the judgement that was passed by the Supreme Court. He will cover what the Constitution says, (and the lie that abortion is a constitutional right) and what the Pro-Life industry should be saying about it.
