Christian Thought Forum

The Christian Thought Forum, or "CTF," is an annual two-day apologetics conference that features some of the brightest Christian thinkers, equipping people to respond to challenges to their faith and to become more effective ambassadors for Christ. The event this year will be held on October 20th & 21st, 2023. 

We are excited to be hosting Paul Gould, Ph.D., an associate professor of philosophy of religion and the director of the M.A. in Philosophy of Religion at Palm Beach Atlantic University. Gould has authored multiple books on philosophy and apologetics, including A Good and True Story: Eleven Clues to Understanding Our Universe and Your Place in It and Stand Firm: Apologetics and the Brilliance of the Gospel (co-authored with Travis Dickinson and R. Keith Loftin).

Our second speaker, Travis Dickinson, Ph.D., has also authored multiple books and is a professor of philosophy at Dallas Baptist University. He attended Alaska Bible College, Biola University, and the University of Iowa. His most recent book--Wandering Toward God: Finding Faith amid Doubts and Big Questions--was named Book of the Year by Outreach Magazine.

Attending the conference is free; an offering will be received to help offset expenses. Nursery will be available for children under age 2. Please make other arrangements for older children. We encourage youth ages 13 and over to attend, as the sessions will prepare all attendees to face the challenges of secularism and other non-Christian worldviews, give them confidence in their Christian faith, and equip them to share it with clarity and compassion. We hope to see you there!

Please RSVP for nursery childcare by October 13.
