Veritas Presentations

Veritas* Presentations

Learn how to answer the kinds of questions that are causing many kids and young adults to walk away from the church. We can make a difference!heading_for_handout-3

How do we help others come to know that what we believe about the Bible and Jesus is true? A critically important part of our ongoing Christian walk is learning to give an answer to others who want to know the reason for the hope we have within us. (1 Peter 3:15)

I would be happy to share one or more of the slideshow presentations listed below with your church or class or small group. For example, several, or all, of the presentations could be given on a series of Sunday or Wednesday evenings (e.g., Once a month on the 3rd Wednesday of the month) or whenever your small group meets. Another possibility might be a workshop format on a Friday evening and Saturday. Of course, if you prefer, a one-time single presentation is possible as well. The schedule and format are flexible.

Each presentation is approximately 45 to 60 minutes in length. There is no charge. If your group does not have access to a digital projector, I can use my personal projector.

*Veritas is the Latin word for “truth.” Steve Hall is a retired High School Math, Physics, and ACT Prep teacher and the founder of the Veritas Christian Apologetics Clubs. You can learn more about the Veritas apologetics clubs at See how to contact Steve at the bottom of this post.
