The Envoy Institute’s
Catholic Apologetics Academy

The Bible exhorts Christians to “always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for the hope that is in you, but do it with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15-16). It also encourages us to “earnestly contend for the Faith” (Jude 1:3).

This is why the Envoy Institute’s Catholic Apologetics Academy was established: To provide thorough, substantive, high-level, and doctrinally orthodox training in apologetics for Catholic adults who desire to live out more effectively those biblical precepts.

Our Catholic Apologetics Academy events give students the opportunity to study all three branches of apologetics — natural, Christian, and Catholic — under the tutelage of trusted Catholic teachers with years of practical and academic experience in the disciplines of Scripture, theology, and philosophy.

Academy courses include in-depth teaching on themes such as logic and critical-thinking skills, explaining and defending the Christian theistic worldview in response to atheist challenges, the evidence for the existence, Resurrection, and divinity of Jesus Christ, the inspiration and trustworthiness of Scripture, and the biblical and historical foundations of  the Catholic Faith.

The Catholic Apologetics Academy teaches Catholic adults how to explain their Catholic beliefs more intelligently, defend them more charitably, and share them more effectively.

Our specially developed multi-day apologetics training sessions are designed to strengthen our attendees both spiritually and intellectually as they prepare to engage an antagonistic culture and various philosophical and religious challenges they are bound to encounter.
