Is your faith grounded? Or is it floating in midair?

It’s an important question, because Christianity is SHRINKING in the West. Over 70% of youth leave the church in college. Our culture is challenging the Christian worldview and Biblical truths. 

We are told the Bible is a book of myths, outdated morality, and contradictions. Most Christians are unprepared to respond rationally to attacks against their faith. But... the truth is that Christianity is rational and demonstrably true! 


In this dynamic and informative teaching series, Brian Henson reveals how to uproot a naturalistic worldview, and replace it with a rational, factual, GROUNDED Christian faith. 


Listen to Brian's story of how, as a new Christian, his faith was severely challenged in college. He began to doubt that Christianity was true, and as he learned more, came to realize the importance of knowing how to understand and defend his beliefs. 

Learn how philosophy, science, archaeology, history, fulfilled prophecies, and miracles establish the truth of the Christian faith. Brian Henson himself will mentor this workshop, answering questions and pointing out how to apply these truths to your faith daily.

This workshop is ideal for high school students, college students, adults, parents, teachers, and pastors. 


This workshop will also be used as part of Brian’s doctoral studies, and the content of the course will be used as source material in his upcoming book, co-authored with David Geisler and Don Deal.


You will complete this workshop in awe of God, amazed with the rational world he has created, deeply grounded in biblical truth, and better equipped when confronted with skepticism and opposition against our faith. You also know how to spread these truths YOURSELF!

"I have a dream... that every Christian parent would be able to equip their children in the faith, the way my father was able to do for me! Growing up I never had any doubts that Christianity was true, because my dad always had the answers to all my questions. I'm so thankful for our NGIM Director of Youth Apologetics and Evangelism, Brian Henson, who has taken my father's 12 Points and turned them into training that's understandable for high school kids and younger! I want to encourage you to equip yourself to equip your own children, and to dig your foundations deep, so that you can be Rooted, Rested, Ready, and Reaching (the 4 R's) to our hurting world!"
