Apologetics Family

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. — III John 1:4

As Christian parents, we truly have no greater joy than to see our children walking with Jesus and standing strong on the Word of God. But do you and your children have the tools in your toolbox to know how to answer those who challenge you? We’ve been commanded to always be ready to have an answer for the hope that we have (1 Peter 3:15) and to contend, or fight for the faith that was handed to the saints (Jude 3), but many of us just don’t know what that looks like on a practical level.

Our two oldest boys went to the minicamp in July and it was really, really great! I would highly recommend attending if your family or part of your family can make it.
— R.J.

Prepare your family for the school year—and for life—by joining me at the scenic Peniel Ranch on the Columbia River in Okanogan, Washington for three days of fun, sun, good food, and great company to give reasonable answers to reasonable questions about the historic Christian Faith. I’ve been to Peniel Ranch many times over the years—it’s worth the drive!
