Applied Apologetics Emphases

Cultural Engagement

CCU Online's M.A. in Applied Apologetics with an emphasis in Cultural Engagement provides you the tools to know how to faithfully articulate the defense of the gospel with grace and truth while acknowledging key cultural issues. In a world where you are consistently communicating with individuals with a vast array of experiences, it is important to know how to defend the faith in a way that makes sense in light of global issues and tensions. Cultural Engagement is a critical skill for evangelism and apologetics, whether you are a pastor, missionary, teacher, or a friend to those who don't know God's grace.

Global Apologetics

CCU Online's M.A. in Applied Apologetics with an emphasis in Global Apologetics helps you discover the truth of the gospel in light of debunking non-Christian and pseudo-Christian belief systems. While engaging with the global sphere, evangelists need to understand the rationale for these divergent beliefs and how to appropriately choose messages for these audiences. The Global Apologetics emphasis prepares you to defend your faith to a wide range of individuals in a practical way that encompasses the grace and truth of Jesus Christ.

Innovative Evangelism

CCU Online's M.A. in Applied Apologetics with an emphasis in Innovative Evangelism harnesses the passion you have for apologetics and develops strategic and creative approaches for spreading the gospel. The church needs to be intentional and tactical to continue to witness to a world of growing atheism and agnosticism. The Innovative Evangelism program will help you advance and evolve as a leader with a strategy to pursue the mission of the church.

Practical Apologetics

CCU Online's M.A. in Applied Apologetics with an emphasis in Practical Evangelism reveals how to see the truth of Jesus Christ in evidence such as science, history, philosophy, archaeology, and religious experience. To effectively witness, apologists need to be able to communicate the message of the cross in pragmatic ideas and examples. Practical Apologetics will develop you to see the truth of the gospel, not only in theoretical and academic approaches, but in everyday life.
