Welcome to the inaugural H3 conference at Chapel Hill Bible Church - a two-day conference on Fri-Sat, November 1-2, 2019.
What is H3?
H3 is an annual conference event at Chapel Hill Bible Church designed to equip and build up the church for teaching, loving and serving through our heads, hearts and hands (H3).
This conference features dynamic speakers, engaging workshops, and fellowship with other men and women who seek to "rightly handle the Word of Truth."
Whether you are considering full-time ministry, seeking to acquire new teaching skills, or desiring growth in your understanding of biblical principles, this conference is for you!
The theme for this year's conference is Speaking the Truth in Love, inspired by Ephesians 4:12-15:
"to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ."
- Ephesians 4:12-15 (ESV)

Our Keynote Speakers
In addition to several of our pastors and leaders at CHBC, we're excited to host the following keynote speakers for this year's theme, "Speaking the Truth in Love."
Dr. Duane Litfin
Former President of Wheaton College
Dr. Bill Mounce
Founder & President of BiblicalTraining.org
Workshops will be a take a deeper dive into the themes of our four tracks: preaching, teaching, leading, and learning. The breakout sessions will include an overview of principles for studying the Bible, integrating faith into work, mentoring, discipling children, and much more.
Including some of the workshops below...
Corruption of the Biblical Texts
We don’t have any of the original writings of the New Testament. We don’t have the initial copies of the originals. We may not have copies of the copies. Some people say that there are more differences among the Greek manuscripts of the New Testament than there are words, and hence we can’t trust that what we have today is what was originally written. Is this a correct assessment?
Bible Study Principles Track (5 courses)
Eric Stortz and Pri Garach (Directors at The Summit Institute (Summit Church)
The Bible Study Principles track covers 6 common principles (over 5 sessions) to guide you in Bible reading. While the principles are easy to remember, they are profound tools for studying Scripture. This track will actively apply the principles taught in real-time to the book of Romans.
Seeing and Proclaiming Christ in All the Scriptures
The Bible is a unified story. The Bible is an interconnected story. The hero is Jesus and the hyperlinks that abound in the story all point to him. Pastor Jay will talk about why we believe the gospel is in every part of Scripture and will commend some strategies on seeing and applying those Jesus-hyperlinks in the Bible.
Walking as a Christian Through Crisis
Randy Russell and Jim Huegerich
Whether we are confronted with life not working for us or we have friends in a challenging place, we desire to be equipped to help. Join us to consider how to evaluate, communicate, and offer wisdom in challenging times of trouble. A crisis provides an opportunity for a turning point to turn to God. "God is faithful, who will provide a way of escape." 1 Corinthians 10:13
Teaching the Text in Creative Ways
Ashley Gyori (Special Needs Director)
Join CHBC's Special Needs Director, and licensed Speech Pathologist, as we look at the Bible through the eyes of someone with an intellectual disability. You will learn ways to break down the truths of the Gospel through the lifespan of those with special needs.
Preparing a Biblical Message
This session is designed to examine the essential commitments and processes of those who aspire to do Bible teaching, whatever the audience or setting. The focus will be on the preparation of a biblical message.
Communicating with Your Spouse In Love
Doug and Ann Shackelford
Ever feel like your least Godly interactions are with your spouse? The purpose of this session will be to deepen our love with our spouses through improved communication. We will discuss some of our communication experiences and then engage everyone in open workshop discussion.
Small Group Leader: The Most Critical Position in the Church
Whether you are just considering leading a small group, or you have led a group for years, this workshop is for you. We will explore why small groups are vital for the church today. We will discuss what are the qualities and roles needed to be an effective leader. Furthermore, we will look to how to change initial acquaintances into a life long community. Finally, we will discuss how small groups can be the entry place for our friends who want to know more about Jesus.
Reading the Bible for All It's Worth: Interpreting the Bible's Various Genres
Mark Hampton (College Minister)
In this workshop we'll be taking a look at the genres that make up the Bible. We'll look at tips and techniques for reading each genre and see how each uses it's particular style to communicate the story of Scripture.
How to Resurrect Anything
The gospel brings transformative power, but what does that mean in day-to-day, practical terms. In this session, more of a workshop than a seminar, you will learn one of the tools we teach in Triangle Fellows for how to apply the gospel to real-life situations.
How to Mentor Others
Ben & Jenn Thomason
Who has God used to influence your life? Do you have what it takes to mentor others? The short answer is "yes"! In fact, God has designed you to be salt and light in this world, to bear witness to His name, and to make disciples. In this session, we will explore what a Biblical model of life-on-life mentorship can look like and how you can engage others within your spheres of influence to pursue this.
Speaking Truth in Love in the Academy
Dr. C. Dianne Martin
The goal of this workshop is to equip Christians in the academy to be true to their faith in a post-modern, secular humanist context.Using Scripture as a foundation, participants will engage with each other on topics such as a vision of vocation in the academy, a call to be a light and bring meaning in the context of an academic discipline, and finding the courage to be true to your faith in all circumstances.
Why So Many and Different Translations?
Why do we have so many translations of the Bible? In many places, especially the Old Testament, they differ with each so much other that I am not sure I can trust them. Why can’t they agree, and why can’t we just go back to one Bible, the King James? And don’t the translators interject their own biases and theological positions? Aren’t publishers just out to make money?
Speaking Truth to Culture
Eric McKiddie (Executive Pastor)
Most Christians have a sense that the Word of God has important things to say about the culture we live in, but those conversations can be very nerve-wracking! We might worry about offending others, or we might be unsure of how the gospel and contemporary culture relate. Pastor Eric will equip us to engage in these kinds of conversations by giving a framework for how Christ relates to culture, and giving strategies for talking to and teaching others about how the Bible is relevant to our culture today.
Dualism: How the Sacred Secular Divide Stifles Our Evangelism
Rodrigo Dinsmore (Missions Pastor)
Many Christians operate under the false pretense that some things are sacred and others are secular. The work of the church is good, sacred, and spiritual, while other aspects of life are are valuable and God-honoring. This separation has led to a disconnect between how we live our lives and our verbal proclamation of the gospel. In this workshop we will briefly explore the history of this dualistic worldview, be challenged by what Scripture has to say about it, and be encouraged in living more holistic lives as we make Jesus known.
Speaking the Truth Through Creativity: Encountering and Making Culture
Among the first aspects of God's nature in scripture is his creativity. As his image-bearers, we are made to create, and that all creative work (despite its being marred by sin) is in its inception work that bears his image. As believers, we are to discern and declare the truth and beauty of God as seen in both the created world (His creation) and in those things made by culture. Our unique capacity to discern these truths equips us to converse about these truths with those who don't know Him. And, as creators ourselves, we should seek to make things excellently in order to sing his praise and declare the truths we know of Him. The workshop will involve exploration of these ideas and also time to examine, analyze, and discuss "artifacts" from our culture (film, paintings, poetry) in order to both practice discernment and to inspire creativity.
