The Berkeley Mission Documentary–Part 1

Posted: January 10, 2011 by Brett Kunkle in Choosing My Religion, Events, God is Real

Each year I take various groups of students to Berkeley, California, on a unique “apologetics mission trip.” We train students in apologetics beforehand and then take them to Berkeley for opportunities to engage in real-life conversations with atheist, agnostics, skeptics, and just about anyone else with a non-Christian worldview.  This trip enables us to do one-of-a-kind training to help students learn what they believe, why they believe, and how to articulate that message to real people.

Here is the first of a four-part documentary series that JC-TV did on the trip.  I’ll post a new episode each Monday.

  1. Sam Harper says:

    Why do you guys always go to Berkley? Other colleges have heathens, too, don’t they? Why not Cal Poly?

    • Amy Hall says:

      I think it’s because Brett has developed relationships with the atheists in the area (and on campus) there that they meet with. But he’s doing one in Boulder this year, so it’s not impossible to have it somewhere else if people ask him to lead one.

  2. There’s also MU!

    Course that’s not in California…

    As someone who has worked with highschoolers and in high school ministry, I say this sounds like really good stuff. It’s good that you teach students to be real with their doubts and also consider the effect of sin on their thinking.
