Tactical Faith: Initiating Conversations About Christianity in our Community
Tactical Faith started as a simple idea between three men over a BBQ lunch in Homewood, Ala. The men present at the meal were accustomed to thinking and talking about Christianity in a certain way and tone. They all tried to love God using both their minds and hearts and desperately wanted to see Christianity promoted in Alabama as something both intellectual and spiritual. The founders of Tactical Faith loved the simplicity of the message of Christ, but also understood that Christians were called to a deep faith that could be probed emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. This is the basic passion that started our nonprofit ministry. Since Tactical Faith’s inception, we have made it our goal to bring the brightest minds of our faith to Alabama. Working with churches, schools and organizations we organize lecture series that cover a wide-array of theological topics. From the issue of resurrection, to the validity of miracles in a secular world, we try to find themes that appeal to a wide array of Christians and non-Christians.
We are purely a volunteer organization that runs on donations from our supporters. With no complex overhead, we can pursue the creativity needed for our type of ministry. Because we see the importance of the local church, we are mindful of our place as a support to the local body here in Alabama. We want to help develop the very best Christian education for our state. From Mobile to Huntsville, we have worked hard to initiate conversations about Christianity.
We are proud to partner with Briarwood Presbyterian Church on April 21-22, 2017 to bring one of the largest youth apologetic events in the country, “reThink Apologetics,” to Birmingham. This conference equips students with the necessary tools to talk reasonably and faithfully about Christ and the Christian worldview. Having this caliber of instruction in Birmingham furthers Tactical Faith’s goal of helping Christian churches and organizations flourish here in the great state of Alabama. I hope you will consider attending. You will not regret it. Learn more at www.rethinkapologetics.com/alabama.
