The Apollos ProjectMobile, ALColumbus, OH
The Apollos Project has grown out of my story. I grew up in a Christian home in Birmingham, Alabama. I believe I genuinely came to Christ at an early age. However, intellectual questions in my high school years almost sunk my faith. I know what it is like to wrestle with doubts. Thankfully, those questions were answered as a college student by the Christian campus group at Brown University.
Given the need of New England for the gospel, I felt called to stay and help plant a church in the RI area. Columbia International University gave me my theological training.
Sharon and I were blessed with four beautiful children and great friends who also wanted to disciple their children. But when we looked around, we saw some great Christian parenting resources but not much to help us pass the gospel baton to our children. And so, with our friends, we began reading, thinking, and praying. These insights form the basis of our seminars and writing. They come from 25 years of preaching, studying the Word, and studying our children. We have made every kind of mistake there is. But by God's grace, we believe God has given us some insight as well.
And then in 2012, after 25 years of pastoring this church, God clearly called us to step out in faith and pursue the ministry of The Apollos Project full-time.
