According to a recent study by The Barna Group, Ltd., only 9 percent of evangelicals have a biblical worldview. This stunning statistic reveals that an estimated 91 percent of professing Christians do not live their lives as though the Bible is real and relevant to them. In response, Focus on the Family is launching the most ambitious project in its history — ³The Truth Project.² Training conference events have been scheduled around the country, including one in Orange County on April 27-28. It will be held at Yorba Linda Friends Church, 5211 Lakeview Ave., Yorba Linda.
³With so few Christians having an accurate biblical worldview, many in the church are living lives that are, in many ways, undistinguishable from lives of non-believers,² said Del Tackett, senior vice president of Focus on the Family and conference host and speaker. The Truth Project desires to reverse this trend with what will be a deep, foundational transformation within the lives of those who attend.
³We believe The Truth Project represents the possibility for exponential change within the body of Christ, as we expect that thousands will be transformed by this training — and we are excited to have the opportunity to share this life-changing program with our friends in the Southern California area,² Tackett added. This two-day event will present attendees with a comprehensive biblical worldview training that, when finished, will equip them to bring the information back to their communities and lead their own small-group The Truth Project trainings.
Focus on the Family is bringing the conference to a number of locations throughout 2007 and beyond. Previous cities have included Seattle, Boston and Atlanta.
Registration cost is $119 per attendee or $149 for attendee and spouse. To learn more about The Truth Project or to register for the Orange County event, visit www.thetruthproject.org/events.
