Training from Stand to Reason

The principle activity of Stand to Reason is training – we aim to train Christians to think more clearly about their faith and to make an even-handed, yet gracious defense for Christianity in the public square. We teach not just what to think, but how to think and how to engage others.

Online Training


STR U is an online training program designed to produce a particular kind of person: an effective ambassador for Christ. Using short, interactive, and engaging courses, STR U equips Christians to make an even-handed, yet gracious defense for Christianity and Christian values in the public square.

In-Person Training

Reality Student Apologetics Conference

At STR’s Reality Conference, we show students that Christianity matches up with the way the world really is—with reality. It makes sense of the origin and design of the universe and life; the existence of objective truth and morality; the purpose, meaning, and value of human experience; the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus; and the existential longing of every human heart. In other words, we have reality on our side.
