“What is truth?” The infamous words of Pilate are more relevant today than ever before. In the culture with no absolutes, Gen Z is often faced with navigating political and cultural issues without a solid Biblical foundation.
UHC is honored to partner with Dr. Tony Beam, Dr. Hunter Baker, Austin Donahoo, and Felicity Ropp to bring an all-day event called “Truth in Politics and Culture” to our High School Students on Monday, February 26th, 2024.
Dr. Tony Beam is a Senior Director of Church and Community Engagement and Public Affairs at North Greenville University. Austin Donahoo is a Senior Advocacy Specialist at World Relief Upstate SC. You can read their biographies HERE.
Dr. Hunter Baker is Provost and Dean of the University Faculty at North Greenville University. You can read his biography HERE.
Felicity Ropp, a UHC graduate, is a policy analyst at Palmetto Promise Institute. You can see her biography HERE.
You can view list of topics discussed during the seminar HERE.
