Do you want to make a meaningful impact in your community and perhaps around the world? Find out how local RTB chapters and visiting scholars are helping spread RTB’s mission, and then consider connecting with one of these communities.
AMP Conference 2016 provided a great time for RTB chapters to connect with each other and with the RTB staff. Many chapters were represented at AMP, but one in particular really stood out. The RTB Chicago, IL Chapter had a group of eight people at the conference. Chapter leaders Bob and Kathy Clapper saw the value in attending the conference with their chapter, so they promoted the conference and laid out a plan to help chapter members get there.
Thank you to Bob and Kathy Clapper and all those that made the long trip from Chicago. We loved having you out and hope to see you next year for AMP Conference 2017.
Visiting scholars come to RTB from a wide range of disciplines and contribute their expertise to the ministry by writing web and newsletter articles, recording podcasts and videos, and delivering talks to RTB staff and local chapters. Through their collaboration with the scholars and staff at RTB headquarters, the visiting scholars are equipped to spread the gospel and effectively engage in science apologetics in their own communities.
