Apologetics is Taking Off in East Tennessee!

First of all, I want to take an opportunity to remind everyone of the God’s Not Dead Apologetics Conference to be held at 6pm this Friday at Freedom House Church of God, Knoxville, TN.


Previously, it was announced that the conference would be held in the youth room. We have moved up to the main sanctuary. In addition to the speakers I have already profiled, Darris Brock will be speaking on the importance of critical thinking, Allie Peters will be speaking on the problem of evil, and Ray Weedon will be speaking on the fine tuning of the universe.

Next month, on the 12th, Dr. Hugh Ross will be speaking at Blount Christian Church in Maryville, TN.


Dr. Ross is a Christian astronomer and pastor, as well as the president and founder of the science and apologetics ministry Reasons to Believe.

I am very excited about these upcoming events and the future of Christian apologetics in eastern Tennessee. I look forward to meeting you all at Freedom House and Blount Christian!

God’s Not Dead Conference Announcement

Hello everyone! 

I haven’t blogged in a while,  and I apologize for that. I will make an effort to post more often, and I may begin podcasting as well.

I want to announce that we will be holding a God’s Not Dead Conference at my local church, Freedom House Church of God in Knoxville, TN. This is actually the third God’s Not Dead Conference that has been held recently in the area through the efforts of Reasonable Faith Knoxville, Reasons to Believe Knoxville Chapter, and area churches. Here is a link to a video of the God’s Not Dead Conference that was held recently at Lighthouse Christian Church in Powell, TN.

The event will be held on September 26th at 6pm. I will be posting further details once they become available, but it looks as though we will have 5 or 6 speakers. I encourage both skeptics and believers to hear evidence for the Christian faith.
