Unshaken ’19

UNSHAKEN ’19 CONFERENCE

In today’s society, and as culture rapidly shifts around us, we’re constantly faced with new waves of challenges and conversations that challenge our faith. It is more important than ever for us, as Christians, to find clarity and confidence in what we believe as topics such as, the value of human life, sexual identity and God’s ultimate truth are being questioned.

Unshaken is a conference for youth and young adults (age 13-30 years) designed to ignite the Christian imagination, and empower us to understand why Christianity is not only believable but also desirable. We’re bringing together speakers, artists and performers to explore the tools we need to become salt and light in our spheres of influence. Join us as we explore the hard questions and learn how to navigate culture together!

She has spoken to high school-and-college assemblies and classrooms, conferences, youth organizations, women’s groups, and congregations across the nation on topics including:

  • The Case for Life — Communicating and defending the pro-life view persuasively and graciously
