Mary Jo Sharp

Mary Jo Sharp is a former atheist from the Pacific Northwest who thought religion was for the weak-minded. She now holds a Masters in Christian Apologetics from Biola University and is the first woman to become a Certified Apologetics Instructor through the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Mary Jo is an Assistant Professor at Houston Baptist University, on faculty with Summit Ministries, an author with Kregel Publications and B&H Publications, author of the top-selling Bible study, "Why Do You Believe That?" and has recently produced a new DVD Bible Study with LifeWay Resources.

A clear communicator with a heart for people, she finds great joy in sharing the deep truths of her Lord and Savior. She administrates the website, Confident Christianity, and has engaged in two formal, public debates with Muslims.

You’ll get notes for the day, a boxed lunch, and opportunities to network with other women. Want more? Lunch discussion groups will be available over the lunch break so you can dialogue and collaborate with other women of influence.


The conference will occur on the campus of Dallas Theological Seminary at 3909 Swiss Ave, Dallas, TX 75204. We will be meeting in Lamb Auditorium for the keynote sessions. Workshops and lunch will take place throughout the Campbell building.
