Engage Apologetics is a ministry that seeks to equip the next generation in El Paso, TX for apologetics, evangelism, and Godliness. Through a variety of weekly training times, ministry activities, special events, retreats, and conferences, we engage the mind, engage the heart, and engage our neighbors in a way that makes the Gospel of Jesus known.

Engage was founded in the summer of 2018 and is led by Caleb and Kendra Harrelson. They were missionaries in Ukraine and served in full-time youth ministry for 6 years. Their involvement in ministry has given them firsthand experience with the vast amount of questions that people have about Jesus, science, and the Bible, so they decided to devote themselves full-time to help believers understand why the Christian worldview is true and how they can fully engage their whole life to know God and make His Gospel known.



We exist to prepare parents and the next generation to know the total Truth of Christianity, Train them how to respond to objections and confidently engage their neighbor in Conversations about who Jesus is.

  • Truth- We make the case for the reasonableness of the Christian Worldview & respond to objections  

  • Training- We provide space for our students to practice articulating and understanding other worldviews

  • Conversation: We facilitate dialogue with people from other worldviews


We accomplish our mission by providing the following types of training and activities:
