I am super excited to announce our new series on apologetics.

Advocates considers what it means for youth to hold firm to biblical convictions and still engage in humble dialogue with the culture around us. Join Sean McDowell, a leading apologetics and worldview author, and AwanaYM in this new high school apologetics curriculum study for students.
