Network With Other Apologists
One of the things that I appreciate most about being a pastor is networking with other pastors. I attend ministerials and other gatherings where I can learn from and encourage other pastors. It should be no different when it comes to apologetics.
It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner apologist or if you teach apologetics in a college or university, everyone needs the support of others. Apologetics covers so many subjects that we could never hope to know it all. But we can contact people who have the information that we don’t have.
This happens by intentionally networking with other apologists. This does not happen by accident, it is something we need to make happen.
One way is to join an apologetics-related society, such as the International Society of Christian Apologetics or the Evangelical Philosophical Society. It can also happen by attending apologetics conferences and including networking as one of your goals.
There are ways that you can do this online as well. One of the best groups out there is the Christian Apologetics Alliance. If you can get connected to their Facebook group, it will be worth your time. Canadians should also check out the Canadian Apologetics Forum on Facebook. You can create your own network by putting together a mastermind of a few other apologists where you meet monthly on Skype or some other way.
My challenge to you is to get connected with other apologists. This is more than joining a Facebook or LinkedIn group. It requires work on your part to seek help from others and to provide information to those looking for it.
