About our Speaker

Mary Jo Sharp founded Confident Christianity - a Christian apologetics ministry that addresses the hard questions of Christianity through research, writing, training and debate.

Mary Jo is a former atheist from the Pacific Northwest who thought religion was for the weak-minded. She now holds a Masters in Christian Apologetics from Biola University and is the first woman to become a Certified Apologetics Instructor through the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.  Mary Jo is an assistant professor of apologetics at Houston Baptist University, on faculty with Summit Ministries, an author with Kregel Publications and B&H Publications, author of the top-selling Bible study, “Why Do You Believe That?” and has produced a new DVD Bible Study with LifeWay Resources. A clear communicator with a heart for people, she finds great joy in sharing the deep truths of her Lord and Savior.

Hostesses

REGISTRATION $20 PER TICKET BEGINNING OCTOBER 29TH

Welcome the Christmas season by serving as a table Hostess. We need 132 Hostesses to set the tables in the Worship Center to make a place for everyone who would like to attend! Being a Hostess is a fun and satisfying experience where you bring your personal, unique touch in setting and decorating the table of your choice. If you plan to invite more then 4 friends, please plan to hostess a table. What’s involved?

  • You provide: the dishes, serving pieces, a small takeaway for each woman, and centerpiece
  • We provide: entertainment and food
  • Hostesses set their tables on their event day between 10:00 and 3:00. Plan at least one hour to set your table. The time you spend preparing your table is a great opportunity for fellowship, especially if you share Hostess privileges with a friend.

Consider leaving a few spots open (or the whole table!) to minister to those who cannot serve as hostesses but would like to bring guests!
