Women in Apologetics

"My greatest takeaway from the conference was not to be afraid to be different and do the hard things. Your kids need to see you do that so they can be emboldened to do it too."

Cassie Troja, 2022 DBAH Conference Attendee

Session Information

A trailblazer is someone who forges a path for others to follow, exactly what we are called to do for our children concerning their faith in Christ. In this session, we will look at the attributes of a trailblazer essential for every parent to have to ensure they are not losing sight of the goal of a mature faith in Christ for their children. We will also look at those things that threaten our trailblazing ways onto the meandering but familiar path of mediocrity and compromise.

Parenting is an overwhelming task. In our own strength, raising kids who love and trust Jesus is not only difficult, it is impossible. However, when we truly understand our identity in Christ, that changes everything, including our parenting. When we ground our parenting in this true and unchanging identity, we are freed from the idols of our culture and heart and can parent out of love for our Savior.

As our children grow, challenges to their faith come from both the outside and inside. Outside forces challenge their faith at every turn through their friends, their entertainment and their education (whether the school system or the internet). Inside this can produce feelings of apathy & doubt toward their faith that can lead to drift or even rebellion. How we guide our children through these feelings and their underlying causes is important for their continued growth in Christ and the equipping they will need to navigate these same feelings as an adult.

Growing up, most of us remember “the talk.” But were you ever told that how we use our bodies directly reflects what we believe about truth, God, and our identity? One of the biggest culture battles is waging on the field of sexuality. If we want to raise children who can think well, recognize cultural lies, and stand firm in the faith, they have to be discipled to see sex for what it truly is: not an act, but an expression of their entire worldview. In this talk attendees will learn the true purpose of sex, how to navigate tough questions, and equipped with practical discipleship techniques to help children understand who they are in Christ and why His design for their bodies matters.

Our kids may know Bible stories and have a handful of verses memorized, but do they genuinely know how to think biblically? Do they have the tools they need to read, interpret, and apply Scripture in a world that wants them to do anything but this? If we want to raise our children to know and love Jesus, we must equip them with the skills they need to seek God through His Word all the days of their lives.

Legacy is much more than tradition — it’s a biblical mandate. In this session, we’ll look at biblical and current examples to help paint a clear picture of what legacy is (and isn’t). Ultimately, as Christians, we all want to plant seeds, not weeds, and this session will give you the confidence to jump in and make a lasting and eternal impact on those you influence.

The secular world is speaking more loudly than ever to kids and is ultimately competing with parents for influence over their kids’ worldview. In light of this reality, how should Christian parents transform the nature of their discipleship to be a stronger voice in the midst of so much “noise”? In this talk, you’ll learn practical answers to this question and gain takeaways you can begin using immediately.

The culture of the world has and will continue to challenge the good and Godly purpose and design for marriage, for sex, and for relationships generally. On TV, in music, and other media, the most attractive relationships presented to us are toxic, and dysfunctional at the core. This is the world’s idea of a desirable relationship: sex with no commitment, unrequited love, abuse both physical and psychological, and utterly self-concerned. This challenge, unlike ever before due to the increasing presence and influence of online worlds, is bypassing parents and guardians and coming straight to the minds and hearts of children. To tackle this, parents must be equipped and willing to speak to their young children about difficult, perhaps uncomfortable topics, and answer questions about why the world does things one way, and why we ought to follow another. We all must defend virtues and values like chastity, patience, wisdom, self-discipline; and above all, love for the Lord, and love for the neighbor.

About the Speakers

Jeremy Bannister

Jeremy Bannister is a husband of over 25 years, a father of three, and a dedicated pastor of 20 years–.at the same church!  He graduated from a Christian & Missionary Alliance Bible College and has been in Youth Ministry the entire time he has been a pastor and co-pastor for 13 of those years. Needless to say, he is passionate about seeing faith built up in young people.  

During his time in ministry, he noticed two troubling issues.  First, as a youth pastor, he wasn’t very good at helping parents with their youth. Second, he wasn’t really sure how to disciple his own children. Over the last 12 years, he has been rediscovering these two lost disciplines. He is passionate about sharing what he has learned and implemented in his own ministry and with his own children to parents everywhere.

In addition, it is his desire to partner with churches to help pastors and teachers come alongside parents and help create a plan of discipleship and growth for their children.

* The church where he serves isn’t a non-denominational Christian, but rather an independent Christian church. He was saved under Southern Baptist preaching.

Amy Davison

Amy is the podcast co-host and an author at Mama Bear Apologetics. She has an M.A. in Apologetics from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2018. Since joining Mama Bear, Amy has taken an active role in writing about sexual ethics and God’s purpose for sexuality.

She recently contributed a chapter about the Jehovah’s Witnesses to the Harvest House Popular Handbook of World Religions (March 2021), and became a member of the Pelican Project.

Elizabeth Urbanowicz

Elizabeth Urbanowicz is a follower of Jesus Christ who is passionate about equipping kids to understand the truth of the Christian worldview.

She holds a B.S. from Gordon College in Elementary Education and Spanish, an M.S.Ed. from Northern Illinois University in Literacy Education, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Elizabeth began her professional career as an elementary teacher in a Christian school.

Several years into her teaching experience, Elizabeth realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. Elizabeth began searching for curricular materials that would equip her students to think critically, helping them discover that Christianity is the worldview that lines up with reality. After not finding any materials that met this need, she began creating a curriculum for her students.

Elizabeth first taught Foundation Comparative Worldview Curriculum as an after-school class for third through fifth graders, and the results were incredible! Students were transformed from passive recipients of information to active evaluators of every message they receive. Parents and teachers alike noticed the impact these materials had on students’ media consumption, academic achievement, and everyday habits. This transformation lasted beyond the elementary years and guided students’ thinking in junior high and beyond.

Elizabeth now works full-time on developing comparative worldview and apologetics resources for children. Her goal is to prepare the next generation to be lifelong critical thinkers and, most importantly, lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.

Christ Defender

Christdefender is a UK based Christian Apologist who’s ever-growing presence on TikTok and YouTube encourages us to critically think about our beliefs, and our objections concerning the Christian worldview, and to seriously consider the weight of the evidence. Christdefender came to know the LORD in her early twenties, and six years later she was baptised in water. Since that day she has committed to walking in obedience to the Word of God; giving up homosexuality and worldly culture. Christdefender is passionate about speaking hard truth into the cultural distortions of sexuality and gender. She believes that we cannot submit to Romans 12:2 with one foot out the door, blocking off the transformational will of God in some areas of ourselves and that the truth of who we are is revealed as we put off our old selves and are renewed by the Spirit.

Natasha Crain

Natasha Crain is a national speaker, author of four books, blogger, and podcaster who is passionate about equipping Christians to think more clearly about holding to a biblical worldview in the midst of an increasingly challenging secular culture.
