This five-week Blueprints course will run Saturdays, 6:00-7:30pm, from April 14th through May 12th. It help you increase your confidence as a Christian by exploring the reasons and evidences for the faith, and preparing yourself to be a more effective ambassador of Jesus Christ. We’ll be focusing on key issues involved in building a positive case for the faith and defending the faith from objections.
An “apologetic” is simply a defense. Peter commanded all believers to be ready with answers when people ask us about our faith. In 1 Peter 3:15 (ESV), the word translated as “defense” is the word apologia, which means “a reasoned statement or argument.”
Obeying this command just means you’ve got reasons for what you believe and you’re ready to talk with anyone who’s got questions. It doesn’t mean getting defensive. It doesn’t mean getting into fights. It means speaking the truth in love as we represent our Lord at work, at school, in our community and society. But in order to be prepared, we’ve got to know what we believe and why we believe it.
When: Saturdays, 6:00-7:30pm – Apr 14th-May 12th
Where: Bridgeway Christian Church in the Hub Chapel

Had a great time at the apologetics conference last weekend. But that’s just the beginning. Let’s get super-practical and even better-equipped to defend the faith with confidence—join our class!
There has probably never been a more critical time for Christians to know why they believe what they believe and to be able to tell others….And Mikel Del Rosario is well equipped to help the average person do just that. If you live in the Sacramento/Rocklin, California area and can take advantage of this opportunity, you should definitely consider making the effort to do so.
Wow! This looks GREAT! I wish we lived closer!
This sounds like a marvelous course. One that every Christian can learn and benefit from. We need to be able to give an answer for the hope that we have. 1 Peter 3:15
Mikel is an apologist with a heart and sensitivity that is attune for our day and age. It does you well to take any of his courses.
Keep up the good work!
