Faith for Life
In 2019, we hosted a Basecamp event equipping you to make a case for life and defend a Christian pro-life view. This year, we are in a unique cultural position in our political climate.
In December of 2021, The Supreme Court was presented with Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Dobbs is perhaps the most significant abortion case in the Supreme Court since Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey in 1992.
This Summit Basecamp event will equip you to engage in intelligent conversations with the rising generation. In three hours, our speakers will cut through the noise of mainstream media and clear up the confusion about the court cases. You will leave with a clear vision of what the Christian worldview says about our role in society when it comes to making a pro-life defense that will build relationships and speak truth into the issue.
