We should never be afraid to ask questions and seek answers when we are faced with doubts, confusions or challenges. To that end, Liberty Hill periodically holds open forum Q&A events where attendants can ask any question, which will then be addressed by Pastor Marc and other guest panelists present.
Prior events hosted by Pastor Marc with youth and college students before coming to Liberty Hill can be found at www.Think-Faith.net.
The events are presented below with an embedded media player and links to the individual questions below that. Check back often, as the questions are generally posted over time due to the time involved in editing each individual question from the master video. Questions are posted as they become available.
Also, you can find sermon excerpts at the bottom of the page. Along with teaching what the Bible teaches, Pastor Marc often tries to address common challenges or questions regarding that teaching as a part of the message on Sundays.
