Megan Almon, a former University of Georgia gymnast, worked as an award-winning journalist until 2008, when she decided to pursue a career speaking and teaching about Christian apologetics — especially in the area of bioethics. She joined Life Training Institute in 2009, and earned a M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University in 2011.
Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel is the former award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune and best-selling author of more than twenty books. His classic, The Case for Christ, is a perennial favorite which details his conversion to Christianity. His recent release, The Case for Grace, just won the 2016 Nonfiction Book of the Year from the EPCA. For the last twenty-five years, his life’s work has been to share the evidence that supports the truth and claims of Christianity and to equip believers to share their faith with the people they know and love.
Craig J. Hazen is a Professor of Comparative Religion and Christian Apologetics at Biola University and Director of the Christian Apologetics Program. He is the editor of the philosophy journal, Philosophia Christi. He has authored or contributed to range of scholarly works including To Everyone An Answer, Apologetics Study Bible and his novel, Five-Sacred Crossings. Hazen holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies, a degree in Biological Sciences, and has studied International Human Rights in Strasbourg, France.
Clay is Associate Professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University. He holds a D.Min. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School as well as a M.Div. and a B.A. in Philosophy. He is the former host of Contend for Truth, a nationally syndicated call-in talk radio program. Dr. Jones was the executive director of Simon Greenleaf University (now Trinity Law School). He has been on the pastoral staff of two large churches and has authored apologetics software as well as encyclopedia and journal articles.
Chris Du-Pond is a Systems Engineer with 20 years of experience in the high-tech industry. In 2016, Chris graduated with a Master’s degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University with highest honors. He is a member of the Evangelical Philosophical Society, The Evangelical Theological Society and the Christian Apologetics Alliance.
A central theme of Greg’s speaking and writing is that Christianity-if it’s not properly understood and properly communicated- makes the most sense of the world as we find it. He has spoken on more than 70 colleges and university campuses both in the U.S. and abroad and has hosted his own call-in radio show for 27 years advocating “Christianity worth thinking about.” Greg has written seven books, including The Story of Reality- How the World Began, How it Ends, and Everything Important that Happens in Between; Tactics- A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions, and Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air. He received his Masters in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at Talbot School of Theology, graduating with high honors, and his Masters in Christian Apologetics with honors from Simon Greenleaf University.
