Challenge 1 helpful links (2022-2023)

Updated: Apr 13, 2023



Along with leading Engage Truth Ministries, I'm also a Challenge director with Classical Conversations. So, I thought it would be helpful to post several useful documents directly on this page instead of starting another website.

Why do I direct in Classical Conversations?


Training students in debate, rhetoric, logic, research is a core part of what we do with Engage Truth Ministries and thus this is a perfect overflow in my goal of discipling students in a Biblical worldview.


If you are thinking about being a part of your local Classical Conversations community, I encourage you check out the website, https://classicalconversations.com/, and set up a meeting with one of directors nearest to you.


***Note to Parents interested in their students joining my Challenge community in West El Paso:


I will be directing Challenge A (7th grade equivalent) in 2023-2024 and will be requiring parents to read at least one of the resources below and be in agreement with the Classical Christian model (see links below). If parents don't understand and embrace the this model, then CC is probably not a good fit for them and it will be hard to understand why "community days" and curriculum is designed the way it is.

Also, I encourage current Challenge (Ch) 1 students and parents and potential Challenge A parents next year to read our 2023 Ch 1 orientation, particularly the section on "Rules of Decorum" in the document below.
