Faith for Life
Our post-Christian culture rejects the notion of absolute truth. If someone claims to know the truth, they are often labeled as intolerant. So how do we teach our students the truth of Christianity when the world says that truth is subjective? If we want to equip young students with a lifelong faith, then we must help them think differently about truth.
Summit Basecamp’s half-day or full-day event will strengthen your faith and inspire a newfound sense of love, purpose, peace, and hope as you reach the next generation. When we know God’s truth, we can be confident that that truth is not passive or relative — it is life-changing. Truth can change and affect every area of our lives.
This Summit Basecamp is brought to you in partnership with ACSI, The Alec & Belle Waterhouse Lecture Series, and the Hawaii Baptist Academy.
Speaker: Dr. Jeff Myers
The ideas that rule the world seem complicated, but that’s mainly because people don’t know what to look for. Learn about how to identify patterns so we can stop being tricked by bad ideas and start being confident in promoting good ones. You’ll never look at the news, movies or anything else for that matter in quite the same way.

Speaker: Greg Koukl
What is Christianity? Is it a religious system? A relationship with God? A philosophy of life? A roadmap to Heaven? Actually, it’s much more than any of those. Christianity is a story, a drama about conflict, love, betrayal, rebellion, self-sacrifice, and redemption. But this story isn’t a make-believe story. It is a story about the way the world actually is. It is the story of reality. Greg will describe the basic concepts that form the cornerstones of all world views, and the five simple words needed to outline the plot of the Christian account of reality. children/grandchildren or youth group?
A “worldview” is the framework through which we view the world around us. It’s the all-encompassing perspective for how we interrupt ideas, news, relationships, and the opinions we see on social media. Our worldview doesn’t just matter on Sunday mornings at church but applies to every topic we encounter daily. During this session, Dr. Jeff Myers will look at how your worldview affects every topic, even topics such as math, and science.
Pastors, teachers, and mentors have a hard time adding in private mentoring meetings with the next generation. Recognizing this, we show you how to use the interaction time you already have with students, whether it is ten seconds or ten minutes, to become influential mentors in the lives of those they influence.
In this talk, Greg will teach you a two-step game plan allowing you to maneuver with confidence in any situation, no matter how little you know, and no matter how knowledgeable, aggressive, or even obnoxious your opposition may be. And it can be done in a gracious and winsome way. If you’re tired of finding yourself flat-footed and intimidated in conversations about what you believe if you want to increase your confidence and your skill in discussions no matter who you’re talking with, this talk is for you.
Leadership isn’t an option—our only choice is whether we lead people toward what is good and true. Learn the four areas of your life that you can invest in a little bit every day that will help you become an admired person who does what is right and feels a great sense of accomplishment in the process.
