Who We Are

We are credentialed apologists, philosophers, and theologians who have devoted our lives to teaching the trustworthy claims of Christianity.

Why We Do This

For You. We’ve had many questions from people like you wanting to know if what they’re listening to and reading is true. In a culture of pop-teachers and influencers, you may be bingeing on a diet of spiritual fluff without realizing it. We believe the Holy Spirit is calling us to guide you to go ‘beyond the basics’ to fortify your faith in God and strengthen your discernment in your daily walk. In other words, help you eat steak, not cake!

What You Can Expect

You will receive accessible and relatable teaching, across a spectrum of foundational topics, to help you dig deeper and apply truth to every aspect of your life.
