A writers’ conference
that is more than
a conference just for writers!
Do you share the growing sense of urgency I feel as you watch the news? I believe the following “Specials” the Greater Philly Christian Writers Conference is offering July 31 and August 1 are critically important in equipping us to effectively “live His answer.” Please join us. If you live too far away, I urge you to order the CDs after the conference. The order form will be posted on http://philadelphia.writehisanswer.com.
Living in the 11th Hour (Thursday, July 31, 10 am to noon) with a panel of eight including Michael Geer, president of the Pennsylvania Family Association. The goal of the panel, in light of the urgency of the day we live in, is to engage the conference in a moderated discussion on how the Church in our nation can best prepare to stand its ground “in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Persecution is coming. Persecution is here. How do we stand in Christ, with Christ, for Christ, and with each other in these darkening days—not letting our hearts grow cold or our ‘well-doing’ grow weary? If this IS the Eleventh Hour of earth history (and even if it is not)…how do we joyfully get up each day (while the world is falling down around us) and follow Jesus? (Moderated by Mark Ammerman, author of the end times novel, PUSH.)
Mining for Gold (Thursday, July 31, 1:00 – 3:00 pm) – Learn steps to studying the Bible that will provide exciting, fresh content for your spiritual life, writing, and teaching. Tap into the transforming power of Scripture! Bible teacher and author Julie Coleman offers hands-on instruction in digging deep into God’s Word. Come and find those hidden gems just waiting to be discovered.
Reaching Seekers & Skeptics (Thursday, July 31, 3:30 – 5:30 pm) with Rusty Wright, award-winning author, syndicated columnist, and lecturer who has spoken on six continents. Learn how seekers and skeptics think and feel, what they want and why. Practical tools for finding common ground, understanding felt needs, grabbing attention, touching hearts and minds, and sensitively communicating spiritual truth verbally, in writing, and via the Internet even if you’re not a techie. God can use you to reach seekers and skeptics.
Save Our Children (Friday, August 1, 1:00 – 3:00 pm) with Rick Marschall, author of 74 books and hundreds of magazine articles. Christians are pilgrims and strangers in this world. Surely every believer senses that these times are darker, more dangerous than ever. Our culture has turned hateful toward Christians and children are the primary targets of the enemy. There are things we can and must do as Christians. Let us engage!
There is no charge for Save Our Children. The Thursday Specials are $25 for one, $40 for two, $55 for all three. Please use the registration form at http://philadelphia.writehisanswer.com/specials. All of our morning and evening keynotes in Chatlos Chapel are free of charge. Following the Thursday and Friday evening keynote we will have a book signing. No registration is needed for the keynotes or book signing.
Of course the conference also offers a wealth of learning opportunities for beginning and advanced writers as well as an all-day Teens Write program on Thursday, July 31. For specific information check out our 16-page brochure athttp://philadelphia.writehisanswer.com/brochure.
