Ministries like CrossExamined, founded by SES alum Dr. Frank Turek, in addition to Norm Geisler International Ministries, Engage 360, and many others help equip thousands each year with the truth of the Gospel through speaking ministry. For those wishing to join these efforts in bringing sound Christian thinking to the masses, integrated training in theology, philosophy, and apologetics is a must.
Through integrated apologetics-focused Christian education, undergirded with sound philosophy and theology, Southern Evangelical Seminary will equip you to form a complete and systematic Christian worldview. This vital training provides the necessary tools you need for effective evangelism and discipleship.These tools can be practically incorporated into your own speaking ministry as you equip your listeners to be steadfast in the truth.
Individuals looking at online programs in theology, philosophy, apologetics, or biblical studies are impressed when they discover how our digital campus experience pushes far beyond the outdated models of asynchronous education most schools still use. Everything we have developed at SES will equip you to engage a culture that is hostile to the Gospel, and you can get this training for speaking ministry without leaving your current ministry context.
CIA graduates receive a 25% tuition discount on all for-credit SES courses! Started by SES alum Frank Turek, CrossExamined Instructor Academy (CIA) is an intense three-day program where you will learn how to present I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist—which involves four main topics: Truth, God, Miracles and the New Testament—and how to answer questions about those topics in a hostile environment. During those three days, in addition to hearing lectures and participating in discussions, you will be asked to present a portion of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist and answer questions from several instructors such as Frank Turek, Greg Koukl, Richard Howe, J.Warner Wallace, Alisa Childers, and others.
