Friday Field Trip (FFT)

Students Grades 4 – 12 | 10:00 am – 2:00 pm | Crossroads Bible Church

All public, private, and homeschooled students are welcome to attend. This year’s Friday Field Trip is co-sponsored by Children of the Nations: “Raising children who transform nations in Sierra Leone, Malawi, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti.”

Keynote Speaker: Dan Kreft

Dan Kreft is the Seven-Foot Apologist–a blood-bought and bullet-proof child of the King by election, a teacher by gifting, and an apologist, author, and public speaker by calling. He earned a degree in electrical engineering from Northwestern University where he played basketball in the BigTen, and later played professionally in Europe and in the U.S. Dan teaches theology and apologetics to pre-teens through adults at Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, WA where he has been challenging his students since 2003. His three-volume book “Jesus” Is Not the Answer to Every Sunday School Question, is available at amazon.com, and he can be followed at 7 foot Apologist.

 

Why All the Fuss Over Jesus?

Description:

Some religious organizations argue vehemently about who He is or is not. Other groups hold big conferences to encourage and equip people to tell others about Him. No other historical figure has generated more interest in and controversy over his identity than Jesus of Nazareth. Apologist and author Dan Kreft dives into the identity of Christ and reveals why He’s “kind of a big deal.”

 

When Sunday School Fails

Description:

What would you do if God called you to teach Sunday school and then convicted you after seven years of faithful service that you were part of the problem of 2/3rds of teens abandoning the faith? In this talk, veteran Sunday school teacher and author Dan Kreft tells his passionate personal story of how God led him to jettison a curriculum he co-authored, forget all he knew about teaching the Bible, and start all over again.

These are just two examples of the amazing events to come. Please sign up at your earliest convenience and remind the kids to bring their own lunches for the day. Let us know if you have any questions! Please fill out registration form to attend.
