EQUIP Workshops are designed to equip students with fundamental apologetics principles and teachings in order to firmly root their faith in factual evidences for the Christian faith. Each track is designed to tackle four major topics over the course of two days. Dave Glander has been teaching apologetics at Christian schools, universities, national conferences, and churches for over a decade. His ability to connect with students and his application of these tracks has had a large impact with students of all backgrounds. Schools can either choose between one of the two tracks, or go with both for the greatest impact. Dave also travels with Scott Knies (aka: Brother ReD Squirrel), a master guitarist who opens up each session with very unique worship that tills the soil of their hearts in order for the seeds sown during the teachings to take up great roots. The combination of Dave and Scott captivates every student and captures their undivided attention, maximizing their ability to connect and learn.
DARWIN vs. MOSES
There are two main competing views within our culture written down by two different men of history. Both men sought to answer the question of origins, yet only one of these men can be correct. Looking at modern evidences available to us now, we will seek to justify whose statements are correct, and which one is now invalid.

It has undergone countless thousands of hours of top-level scientific scrutiny, yet remains nothing short of being an unexplainable anomaly to those who seek to discredit it. Dave Glander's Shroud of Turin presentation is one of the most up to date in the country, and includes a very rare full-sized replica.
DEALING WITH DOUBTS
A lot of the time, students are told that a simple belief that God is real, or that the Bible is true is all they need. However, most students begin having real doubts by the time they reach middle school. It's important to not only realize that it's totally normal to have doubts, but it can actually be a good thing when given the tools on how to deal with doubts correctly.
IS ALL TRUTH RELATIVE?
One of the most cancerous trends in our culture, and even within the walls of Christianity, is the idea that all truth in merely relative to each person's own understanding. This has led many to create their own misconstrued ideas about morality, ethics, and religious doctrine. The fact of the matter is that truth is not just absolute, Truth is a Person.
DINOSAURS AND THE BIBLE
Is it possible that man and dinosaurs once walked planet earth together, at the same time? Does the Bible mention dinosaurs?

THE FLOOD OF NOAH AS HISTORY
The flood narrative as captured in the Bible is one of the most intriguing moment of Biblical history. But how can we know that it really happened? Is there solid evidence to support a global flood several thousand years ago? And if so, how does the affect the secularist view on geology?
