Free Certificate in Apologetics

One of the things that has burdened me for quite some time is the need for widespread, sound, theological education in our state. While I would like to see a full-fledged seminary in West Virginia in the future, that goal is still far off. In the meantime, I have developed a free certificate in apologetics program. I call it the Appalachian Theology Institute. There is no cost for tuition, but to enroll in the certificate program you must be subscribed to the Appalachian Theology Review newsletter (it is not spam, the newsletter contains serious theological content). Instructions for how to enroll are available on the website linked to above.

For the time being, the program centers on classical apologetics. In the near future, I hope to add a second track within the certificate program that will focus on presuppositional apologetics. I also hope to create completely new certificate programs in the areas of theology, biblical studies, and so on. Until then, check out the current basic certificate in Christian apologetics.

God bless,
