NOV 3, 2018

Time: 9 AM – 4 PM (8 AM Registration)



REBOOT meets in major cities across the globe to explore questions such as ‘How can we know God exists?’, ‘Why does God allow suffering?’ and ‘Hasn’t science disproved God?’. REBOOT provides a place for young people, with or without any faith or church background, to raise their objections and investigate different perspectives on life.

Our team of world-class apologists want you to have confidence in what you believe, and the chance to be honest about your doubts. Since its launch in 2013, REBOOT has welcomed hundreds of young people to its conferences, and we want you to be part of our story. Find out if we’re coming to a city near you!
