The Charleston Southern University College of Christian Studies proudly presents ENDURE, our annual apologetics conference for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. The goal of ENDURE is to equip students to walk with Christ in a world opposed to Him and answer key questions from the Christian Worldview. This year’s conference will focus on the ways the Bible, an ancient text, still speaks to a modern world.
