Earlier this week (Nov. 1 and 2), Prestonwood Baptist Church, Christian Thinkers Society, and Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, joined forces to host “Anchored,” a two-day conference that witnessed over 3,000 gather to be equipped by the school’s Biblical Worldview Institute (BWI).
The conference, which started in 2005, aims to instill a Christ-centered worldview in the youth of today. BWI says that a “growing number of young people in the United States are walking away from their faith. The list of ‘former Christians’ is growing as is their influence.” The conference is designed to “equip students, educators, and parents to navigate these crucial culture conversations and anchor in the faith.”
This year’s “Anchored” conference focused on the topic of deconstruction and featured well-known speakers Dr. Sean McDowell, Alisa Childers, Dr. Scott Stripling, Dr. Craig Evans, Dr. Randy Guliuzza, Allen Parr, and Dr. Jeremiah J. Johnston.
ChurchLeaders spoke with Prestonwood Baptist Church Pastor of Apologetics and Cultural Engagement and Dean of Spiritual Development at Prestonwood Christian Academy, Jeremiah Johnston, at the conference.
