"Faith & Reason Made Simple"

                (Training for the 21st Century Christian Believer)

New Arrival

 This book is designed to simplify the complex issues of apologetics in order to equip believers of all ages to better defend their faith in the midst of this skeptical culture we live in. To order your copy of the book today, click here.

  Why is this book important?  Why should I care?  Why should I take time to be trained (equipped) to better defend my Christian faith?  In these opening thoughts you will see answers to these questions.

Children’s Ministry Curriculum Debut Planned


One of the goals of this ministry is to produce needed materials for local churches. From examining what tools, materials and resources are available it is evident that one of the greatest needs is church friendly kid’s materials which teach children apologetics. With this in mind we are excited to announce that during the Chicagoland Truth Conference on September 22, 2018 we will be including an all day children’s apologetics event along with the sessions for adults and teens. During this event we intend to debut a new apologetics curriculum designed for teaching kids apologetics in the local church. Please pray for the development of this material during the next year. If you have ideas or know someone with interest in this area please contact Rick at
