Faith in the Public Square: Persuading the Next Generation

First Presbyterian Church, 9751 Bonita Beach Road Southeast, Bonita Springs is hosting Faith in the Public Square: Persuading the Next Generation on March 13 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

In today’s political climate, there seems to be an increasing divide between older and younger generations. Especially on issues of faith and public morality, different generations seem, at times, to be speaking different languages. Moreover, the rise of the religious “nones,” the constant background noise of digital media, and the postmodern relativistic mindset of our culture further complicate intergenerational dialogue. As distinctly Christian voices are pushed further outside the realm of acceptable public speech through both the hard-power of law and the soft-power of culture, it has become more difficult to talk about sensitive issues.

How can the theological riches of the Reformed tradition help guide those who hope to persuade the younger generation of the truth of the Christian message and way of life in such a climate?

Faith in the Public Square: Persuading the Next Generation will seek to address this question and more. Speakers for the event will be:

Peter Lillback | President, Westminster Theological Seminary
Scott Redd | President, Reformed Theological Seminary, DC
Rob Pacienza | Lead Pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
Harry Reeder | Lead Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church
John Stonestreet | President, The Colson Center

Lunch will be provided for the first 100 people to register. The sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church seats 1300 comfortably, allowing for plenty of room for social distancing. Attendees will be required to wear masks as they enter the building due to congestion in the Narthex, but once attendees take their seats, they may remove their masks at their discretion.

Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. Tickets cost between $15 – $25.
