Endure ’17 Apologetics Conference

Charleston Southern University's College of Christian Studies is sponsoring a conference aimed at high school students. Endure ’17 is designed to probe questions facing sophomores, juniors and seniors as they navigate their teenage years and beyond.

Dr. Ross Parker, dean of the College of Christian Studies, said the goal is to make this an annual conference.  Parker’s aim for this one day conference is “to equip students to answer some of the most pressing objections to Christianity.” 

Students will examine:

  • Can we know there’s a God?
  • Why does God care about sex?

Parker and Dr. Ed Gravely, associate professor of Christian studies, will lead the students, and the day will conclude with a one hour question and answer session.

The Endure ’17 Apologetics Conference is scheduled for April 1, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Whitfield Christian Leadership Center.  There is a $5 per student charge to cover the cost of lunch.


Founded in 1964, Charleston Southern University is a private, four-year liberal arts college. CSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and is affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention. The university's vision is to be a Christian university nationally recognized for integrating faith in learning, leading and serving.
