Rethinking Hell Conference 2022

–Rethinking Hell CONFERENCE 2022–


The ninth annual, international Rethinking Hell Conference will be held on October 28-29, 2022, at One Life Church in Evansville, Indiana.

This will be an occasion for ordinary Christians of various denominations and backgrounds to gather and work together to think more carefully and biblically through the doctrine of hell.

Featured speakers will include content creators in Christian theology and apologetics who come to this topic with different and at times competing perspectives but embrace one another as family in Christ. In their presentations, they will equip attendees, both in-person and virtual, to study what the Bible and Christian tradition teach about hell and come to their own informed and freshly-considered conclusions.

This year, the theme of the conference is
“More Light Than Heat: Thinking Together
Through the Doctrine of Hell”

Our Speakers
