TEACH 4 LIFE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
FRIDAY, APRIL 9 | 6:30 P.M. - 9:00 P.M.
SATURDAY, APRIL 10 | 9:00 A.M. - 3:30 P.M.
What is Teach 4 Life?
Teach 4 Life is a seminar for educators - teachers, youth ministers, parish catechetical leaders, clergy, counselors, administrators, parents, and anyone else interested in learning more about how to educate our youth on life issues.
National and local speakers present on the difficult issues facing youth today such as transgenderism, homosexuality, the failed promise of abortion, pro-life apologetics, dating & relationships, human dignity, and more.
TCEED & Diaconate educational credits will be available.
What does it mean to be made for freedom?
The need for freedom is imprinted on our human nature. It runs deeper than simply being able to do what we want. It directs us toward choosing the truth. When we freely choose the truth, it perfects our exercise of freedom and our ability to choose life as God offers. Society would have our youth believe that truth is whatever a person wants it to be. As a result, teens and young adults are being ensnared in a cultural web that turns them away from God’s truth and promotes personal freedom above all else. At this year’s conference, we will address the hard issues that our youth are facing in today’s culture and offer faith-filled truth to help them live and thrive in authentic freedom.
Trent Horn: Pro-Life Apologetics
After his conversion to the Catholic faith, Trent Horn earned master’s degrees in the fields of theology, philosophy, and bioethics. He serves as a staff apologist for Catholic Answers, where he specializes in teaching Catholics to graciously and persuasively engage those who disagree with them.
Trent models that approach each week on the radio program Catholic Answers Live and on his own podcast, The Counsel of Trent. He has also been invited to debate at UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, and Stanford University.
Trent is an adjunct professor of apologetics at Holy Apostles College, has written for The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly, and is the author of nine books, including Answering Atheism, The Case for Catholicism, and Why We’re Catholic: Our Reasons for Faith, Hope, and Love.
