The 5 Reasons:
The 5 Reasons presentation by Christian attorney Daniel Buttafuoco is an eye opening journey through the history, accuracy, and importance of the Word of God. Since 2004, the Historical Bible Society has been committed to the preservation of ancient Biblical texts and dissemination of the Word of God. As Dan presents his best arguments for the Bibles importance to Western Civilization, you'll have the opportunity to look at artifacts dating as far back as 1900 years. Bishop Roderick Caesar called the presentation "one of the most insightful and beneficial I've ever seen on the Holy Scriptures." Even the most doubtful person is sure to leave with a new perspective and a desire to dig deeper into the most important book ever written.
The Most Valuable Time With Your Guest:
You have only one chance to make a good first impression. And most of your first time guests will decide in their first 10 to 15 minutes on campus if they want to return again. Architecture is not the most important factor in that decision, but it is something you can improve to influence their first impressions. We will discuss some practical measures that you can take to improve your facilities for great first impressions. People's expectations for a church building are rising, and you need to see your campus through their eyes.
