Josh McDowell is a Christian advocator, evangelist, and writer who has impacted the lives of millions of people worldwide. He is bringing his experience, faith, and commitment to his widely-popular speaking ministry to the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, July 30. At this free event, which will start at 7 p.m., McDowell will deliver a heartfelt discussion entitled, “Save Our Children, Save Our World!,” and will focus on one central message: Finding a way to reverse the slippery slope that attracts children before it’s too late.
Having experienced many hardships and challenges throughout his childhood, McDowell understands how easy it is for young people to stray from the gospel. After overcoming many personal trials, McDowell enrolled in college and decided to pursue legal studies which he hoped would lead to a career in politics. At the time, Mc- Dowell considered himself agnostic and found himself researching historical evidence of the Christian faith in order to disprove it in a writing assignment. However, after he only found evidence that supported Christianity, he began to live his life differently and became a Christian. After that, he changed his career path to theology.
