Rome — On Saturday, Feb. 16, Shorter University will host the Believe Conference designed to encourage high school-aged students in their faith in Jesus Christ.

“The Believe Conference is an opportunity for high school students to learn the foundations of Christian faith and how to communicate those truths to their non-Christian friends,” said Brent Baskin, associate professor of Christian Studies, Youth Ministry at Shorter. “The wide range of expertise in the Christian Studies faculty gives Shorter University the opportunity to equip students to walk confidently in their faith and share it compassionately with those around them.”

Registration for the conference is available online at

Blackaby is an adjunct professor of Christian Studies at Shorter. Known for speaking on cultural engagement, Christianity and the arts, apologetics, and reaching the next generation for Christ, Blackaby’s talk at Shorter will focus on asking student attendees “Why Do You Believe?”

Barnes, assistant professor and chair of the department of Christian Studies at Shorter, will present a session titled “What Christians Believe.” Baskin will lead students to explore the question “What Do You Believe?” Butler, adjunct professor of Christian Studies at Shorter, will focus on the topic of “Sharing What You Believe.”
