Doesn’t Christianity crush diversity? Apologists Dave Jensen and Amy Orr-Ewing to answer at Onward Youth
Apologists Dave Jensen and Amy Orr-Ewing will be joining the Onward Youth platform to address the question: Doesn't Christianity crush diversity?
Onward Youth is a one-night apologetics conference for high schoolers and people involved in youth ministry. This year, we’ll be tackling a massive question: Doesn’t Christianity crush diversity?
Christianity is often seen as being judgmental and biased, welcoming some types of people and excluding others. As Christians, we’re inevitably going to cross paths with people whose lives look very different from our own or might not line up with how the Bible instructs us to live. How can we best relate to these people? How can we respond when their values or opinions oppose our faith? And how can young Christians feel prepared for these situations before they occur?
This year, we are pleased to welcome Dave Jensen (Pastor, EV Church) and Amy-Orr Ewing (Author, ‘Where is God in All the Suffering?’) to share their wisdom and life experiences at Onward Youth
Meet Dave Jensen
Dave Jensen will speak in-person at Onward Youth this June. Dave works as a pastor at EV Church on the sunny Central Coast of NSW. Prior to working in ministry, he was in the Australian Army for the best part of a decade which is where someone told him the truth about Jesus and he became a Christian. Dave is married to Sammy, and they have 6 kids. He loves telling people about Jesus, Lebanese chicken and the Sydney Roosters.
