Apologetics in Church Ministry

Brian Auten of Apologetics 315 begins a series of posts featuring essays on integrating and implementing apologetics in your church. The line up includes my essay previously featured here titled “Why Apologetics is Important to Your Church“.

Why a series like this? Brian states:

The goal of this project is a simple one: to share stories, experiences, and advice that will help Christians to start their own local apologetics initiatives. Whether you be a pastor, youth pastor, teacher, elder, or lay person, this series of short essays could hold the keys you need to get things started in your own local congregation.

Check out this impressive set of essays. But more importantly, design an apologetics ministry in your church and deploy it in your philosophy of ministry so every member may define, declare, and defend the wonderful truth claims of Christianity to a world that desperately seeks answers!
