What are the issues local church pastors are facing today? We will discover some of those issues and how to approach them in this year’s Bible Conference. Come and learn from this year’s experts. Enjoy snacks throughout the day, and a box lunch in the middle! It all happens right here in Fayetteville, NC! Register today for our next Bible Conference on Saturday, February 12, 2022.
Saturday, February 12, 2022
8 am until 3 pm
This year’s speakers bring a wealth of knowledge to the topic of contemporary issues. Have your mind trained to understand the intellectual challenges of postmodernism and secularization as they really are rather than the “straw-man” versions the church is famous for fighting. Have your heart strengthened for misunderstood and marginalized sub-cultures like Gen-Z so that we can be the people with the eyes of our hearts open for these people. Finally, be equipped to more effectively reach neighbors of all kinds to fortify their churches as they sharpen their understanding of the Bible as the Sword of the Lord.

Title: A Scriptural Preview of Postmodernism
Synopsis: There is nothing new under the sun, and while postmodernism is the “new” idea on the block, its buildings are old and worn. This talk will examine this unfamiliar worldview starting with familiar Scripture that addresses the same kinds of issues encountered long ago.
WILLIAM WALLACE, PROFESSOR
Mr. William Wallace is alum of CCBS and now serves as an Adjunct Professor of Apologetics and Worldviews. Wallace serves as Associate Minister at New Life Bible Institute. He is alum of CCBS and holds a MA in Religion as well as an MA in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary. He is currently pursuing his doctorate.
Title: A Loss of Saltiness: The Secularization of the Church
Synopsis: God has tasked the church with spreading the gospel, discipling believers, and blessing the culture it is immersed in. However, this is not without its challenges. One of the most significant and persistent challenges, for the local church, is resisting secularism. Wallace will use Revelation 1-3 to address how the local Church should proceed in resisting secularization in its many forms.
Justin Tilghman, PROFESSOR
Dr. Justin Tilghman teaches within our Online Program and serves as an Academic Advisor. Tilghman holds an BA in Spanish from Campbell University, a MA in Theological and Ministerial Studies from Liberty University, a MS in Homeland Security from Eastern Kentucky University, and a PhD in Educational Leadership from Columbia International University. Tilghman serves as an elder at Grace Fellowship Church.
Title: Preparing a New Generation to Follow Christ in Difficult Times
Synopsis: A study of 2 Timothy 3. Paul describes his audience in much the same way as one might describe the modern Gen Z audience today. In this passage, Paul encourages Timothy to stick to the foundations which is what will be the best way for us to prepare Gen Z to live in their unique challenges.
Drew Curley, PROFESSOR

Curley holds a BS in Biology from North Carolina State University, an MA in Theological and Ministerial Studies and an M.Div. from Liberty University, and PhD in Biblical Studies from Tyndale Theological Seminary.

Title: Bible Translation in the 21st Century
Synopsis: With all the modern translations available in English today, it’s hard to imagine that people exist on the planet without God’s Word in their heart language. But there are!
