An Open Invitation to Church Leadership:
Host a CAA Chapter as One of Your Community Groups
Christian Apologetics Alliance (CAA) Chapters have been established to meet regularly and collaborate together and with other local ministries to discuss a wide variety of important apologetics topics; offer mentorship, encouragement, and support to one another as we grow together in our understanding of apologetics; provide a platform for sharing about a wide variety of apologetics resources, conferences, educational opportunities, debates, and so on; and develop friendships and collaborations within the kingdom of God. [Apologetics: The study of evidence for the truth of Christianity, and of answers to common objections and doubts.]
We encourage participation in and of the local church, who are more than welcome to host CAA Chapter meetings, conferences, and so on. We gladly promote CAA Chapter activities on our website and social media accounts, and just as gladly promote, applaud, and appreciate local churches who host or support CAA Chapters in any way. We are thrilled to be of service to the local church.
In response to a call to help local churches equip the body of believers with apologetics, the CAA would like to offer our local CAA Chapter Leader to guide one of your church’s community groups in the study of Gospel-centered apologetics. The main goal of this offer is to help you adequately equip your church to be a pillar and support of the truth (1 Timothy 3:15). Moreover, training is structured to progress at the pace of the community group and will bolster confidence in sharing the reason for our hope (1 Peter 3:15). This is a free offer with only a required commitment from your leadership team to promote the community group along with the rest of your community groups, and for community group members to attend and participate.
Each of our CAA Chapter Leaders has been thoroughly vetted by the CAA Admin Team, and is qualified to guide a small group in the study of Biblical apologetics. Many of our leaders have experience teaching in church and classroom settings, while some have dedicated years to teaching apologetics exclusively. The CAA also affirms, to the best of our ability, the character of our CAA Chapter Leaders to be of high moral standards. Furthermore, the CAA ensures that the CAA Chapter Leader of your community group affirms the major doctrinal tenets of Christianity. Review our Statement of Faith.
We also want to reassure you that our CAA Chapter Leaders come prepared with detailed lesson plans, housing clear objectives for every block of instruction, in addition to outlines, handouts, and activities. This activity would not require any additional burden upon your preaching staff and should be a completely transparent process to their weekly workflow.
If you would like to explore the possibility of hosting a CAA Chapter as one of your church’s community groups, please contact us. If we don’t have a CAA Chapter established in your area and you can recommend someone from your congregation, please share this application form with them and contact us, as well.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and for making the equipping of the saints a priority in your church!
