Norcal Fire is designed to equip Christians to talk to the lost, and immediately put what they learn at the conference in practice with guidance and support from seasoned evangelists. There will be so many others practicing evangelism at this event that you can watch others until you are ready to step out of your comfort zone and get fired up. There is no better way to grow spiritually than to OBEY the Savior who died for you and warn the lost of the fire to come. Many will find a spiritual transformation after a day of evangelism!!

J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case homicide detective, adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University, Christian case maker and author. J. Warner was a conscientious and vocal atheist through his undergraduate and graduate work in Design and Architecture (CSULB and UCLA); he always considered himself to be an “evidentialist”. His experience in law enforcement only served to strengthen his conviction that truth is tied directly to evidence. But at the age of thirty-five, J. Warner took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian Worldview and determined that Christianity was demonstrably true. After becoming a Christ follower in 1996, Jim continued to take an evidential approach to truth as he examined the Christian worldview. He eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.

JPM is overseen by a Board of Directors and Justin and his wife, Kathy, are members of Grace Community Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
