Franklin Heights Institute exists to help equip the church to think Biblically and be SENT to tell others about Jesus. The world needs to hear the truth of the Gospel, and we want to equip you to know how to tell it. The foundation of the Franklin Heights Institute is based on 1 Peter 3:15 which says, “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,”. This is the goal for everyone who participates in the Institute; to know what you believe, why you believe it, and to tell it to others in truth and love.

Franklin Heights will feature several classes this fall for those who would like to learn more about defending your faith.  Dates and a description of each class may be found below.

October 20 and 27, 6:30pm: TACTICS FOR DEFENDING YOUR FAITH

This two-part course will teach you how to maneuver comfortably and graciously as you share your faith with others.  Learn how to navigate challenges to the Christian faith, stop challengers in their tracks, and get people thinking about Jesus.  Tactics gives you the game plan for communicating the compelling truth about Christianity with both confidence and grace.  We will give you the tools to share the Gospel with confidence.

November 10, 17 and 24, 6:30pm: HOT TOPICS

The Franklin Heights Institute is coming to Student Ministry on these three Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm. Classes will be held in the Student Center.
