About Grounded

Back to Top

Grounded is a two-day apologetics conference where teens will be equipped to better understand, explain, and share their faith.

The conference speaker this year is J. Warner Wallace, a cold-case homicide detective, popular national speaker and best-selling author.

Apologetics most simply defined, is a reasoned defense of the Christian faith. The word apologetics is derived from the Greek word apologia, which originally referred to a speech of defense or an answer given in reply. As followers of Christ, we are instructed to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (see 1 Peter 3:15). This is apologetics.

Apologetics Speakers
J. Warner Wallace.

J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case homicide detective, popular national speaker and best-selling author. He continues to consult on cold-case investigations while serving as a Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. He is also an adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University and a faculty member at Summit Ministries. J. Warner was a conscientious and vocal atheist until the age of thirty-five, when he took a serious and expansive look at the evidence for the Christian Worldview and determined that Christianity was demonstrably true. After becoming a Christ follower in 1996, Jim continued to take an evidential approach to truth as he examined the Christian worldview. He eventually earned a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.
