For this tournament we will be using Apologetics questions from the following Stoa categories.

  1. Category 1: The Character and Nature of God
  2. Category 3: Scripture
  3. Category 4: God and Man

Please see the updated Apologetics questions here.

Description: In Apologetics, the competitor is given four (4) minutes to prepare a persuasive and reasoned speech that defends a tenet of the Christian faith.

Goal: Competitors will be motivated to study, articulate, and defend the core issues of their faith in a knowledgeable, sincere, and respectful manner. The focus may or may not be evangelistic. Content is key: greater weight should be given to the speech content, rather than the presentation style.
