The Bible clearly calls for God’s people to be ready to defend the truth of His word. But with society embracing secularism, churches have struggled to adequately train their members in Christian apologetics. As a result, atheism among young people has doubled and the number of young adults leaving the church is at an all-time high. The Daily Apologist is an organization within churches of Christ working to solve this problem by equipping Christians and engaging culture.
The Raleigh Church of Christ is pleased to be a sponsor for The Daily Apologist. We are providing financial support, and TDA will meet annually with congregation leaders to discuss the work. Dean Meadows, the president of TDA, will be the liaison between TDA and RCC.
Our primary function is to be spiritual advisors to the team at TDA as they go about their mission. When needed, the team is more than welcome to solicit our advice on a variety of matters stemming from business strategies, personal matters, and spiritual growth.
in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect
– 1 Peter 3:15
April 2021 Update
Dear Apologetics Family,
As with every month there is much to report about The Daily Apologist.
First, we are excited to announce that our new online training center will be adding a new course at the end of May. New and current students will gain access to a course on defending the resurrection. We’d like to thank Aaron Johnson for developing and teaching the course. Furthermore, we’d like to thank Bryan Loy and his team for shooting the amazing videos associated with the material.
Second, If you are in the greater Nashville, TN area from June 2-5, stop by the Connect Conference and check out our information booth! The Connect Conference is hosted by the Crieve Hall congregation and will focus on how churches can improve on making disciples. With over 30 speakers, this conference is sure to be a valuable time of fellowship and learning.
Third, I’ll be speaking at the Curry Church of Christ June 5-6, 2021. In our time together, I will examine atheism’s rapid rise in America, give evidence for the existence of God, and talk about how Peter used apologetics in Acts 2. it will be a great time of fellowship, learning, and equipping.
As always, I want to thank you, our supporters. Without you, the operations of The Daily Apologist cannot take place. Your prayers and donations impact the lives of people across the country and the world.
