Real Help for Real Living





In this two week course, David Chadwick and his son, David (or DB as some of you affectionately know him), will look at some of the most often and thorniest questions asked of Christians.  

The first week will focus on questions about creation and science, generally from the Old Testament. The second week will examine questions from the New Testament, especially around the person of Jesus and proofs of the resurrection (after all, it will be Holy Week!).  

We hope to give you ways to defend your faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of the world.

Why it matters

"Jesus tells us to make disciples. A disciple is someone who wants to know God and learn from Him. We want you to know how much God loves you and we are committed to help you grow spiritually. Come join us.”


- John Kasay

Your faith in Jesus is more than just attending church on Sunday. It is an active, growing, deepening journey of discipleship. And we want to give you the tools to help you thrive.
