How to Reach the “Spiritual But Not Religious”

Phylicia Masonheimer

We all know someone who is “spiritual, but not religious,” uninterested in organized religion. This session will explore how to talk about the gospel to those who prefer a customizable and subjective spirituality, and how their Christianity actually answers the desires of their hearts. You’ll leave this session understanding why people are averse to organized religion, how to meet them with both compassion and truth, and how to communicate Christian doctrine and history in tough conversations.

In the Shadow of our Steeples

Jeremy and Cortney Jenkins

Many of the Non-Christians in our lives are unlikely to attend our church services, even if we invite them. There are many reasons for this, but this session will help you truly see those in your community who wouldn’t walk through the doors of your church.

God Can Do More With Your Rest

Sanctified Evangelism: The Role of Personality in the Gospel

Phylicia Masonheimer

Our personalities are given by God, but they are also affected by sin. When sharing the gospel, each of us is given a set of skills to nuance how we communicate God’s truths to others, but we also have a set of liabilities we must overcome. The Holy Spirit sanctifies our personalities to make us better communicators, but how do we partner with His growth? Learn how to prevent your personality from hindering the gospel, and how it can empower the Great Commission, in this session.

Testimonials

"I attended Verity alone to see if it was something I could feel confident sharing with others. It did not disappoint. I left feeling more sure of what I believe, more equipped to dig into what I wasn’t sure about, more encouraged to share with others. The session on hospitality was my very favorite. It gave me the push I’d been needing to get back into opening my home to others. Verity was the push I needed to get back into doing what the Lord has called me to do."
