Hi! I’m Mikel
I’m not the next Josh McDowell. I’m not a huge name like William Lane Craig—although I did study under him at Biola!
I’m just a regular guy who’s had the honor of working with some of the best Christian apologists while earning my Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics at Biola University. Today, I teach Christian Apologetics and World Religion at William Jessup University.
I was born in Illinois but grew up in the Philippines. That’s where I decided to become a follower Jesus. Even though I grew up on a Christian home, I always had a bunch of questions about the faith: “Can I really trust the Bible?” “Is Christianity really true?”
During my teenage years, I began to discover that there are good answers to the hard questions. The more I looked into the case for Christianity, the stronger my faith became. I want that same confidence for you.
So why read my blog?
Because the content I make available can help you—and your church—defend the faith with confidence.
On this site, you’ll discover some of the most important lessons I learned during my graduate work in apologetics, my current studies in theology, and practical training tips from over 10 years of teaching apologetics to students, adults and even on the mission field—in a way that’s really accessible.
If you’re new here, “Welcome!” Please start off with my top 7 articles on the basics of defending the faith.
After that, check out some of my greatest hits from around the blog:
- Did Jesus Say He Was God?
- America After 9/11 – Is Religion Evil?
- Spiritual Warfare – What You Didn’t Hear at Bible Study
- A Story About Faith – How to Illustrate Biblical Faith
- The Resurrection of Jesus – An Unlikely Easter Conversation
One more thing…
If you’re interested in getting started with an apologetics study, check out my Accessible Apologetics Workbook. It includes full access to the complete audio recordings of an entire 5-week training program I did at Bridgeway Christian Church based on my Accessible Apologetics Curriculum.
I’m not a nationally-recognized speaker or a big name. But I’m here to help.
My name is Mikel. Welcome to my blog.

I completed my B.A. in Communications with an minor in Biblical Studies at Biola University (1999). I also earned my M.A. in Christian Apologetics with highest honors from Biola University (2003). I’m currently pursuing a Master of Theology (Th.M) at Dallas Theological Seminary, studying the Biblical languages and the Historical Jesus.
I’ve taught college courses as a missionary professor in the Philippines and at Biola University. I’ve also taught a Christian Apologetics and Evangelism course at Western Seminary. I teach Christian Apologetics and World Religion at William Jessup University.
I’m an active speaker for both youth and adult audiences at churches, schools and conferences in the United States, Canada and the Philippines. I’ve presented at small, medium and large apologetics events alongside expert apologists like J.P. Moreland and Craig Hazen.
I’m the author of Accessible Apologetics, a training program for everyday defenders of the faith.
I’ve also edited publications for Moody publishers, such as William Lane Craig and Joe Gorra‘s A Reasonable Response: Answers to Tough Questions on God, Christianity, and the Bible and Paul M. Gould and Richard Brian Davis‘ (eds) Loving God with Your Mind: Essays in Honor of J. P. Moreland.
I’ve been a guest on the nationally-syndicated Janet Mefford Show, Dallas Theological Seminary’sThe Table Podcast, and a featured apologetics.com panelist on KKLA 99.5 FM. I’ve also appeared in Focus on the Family’s Citizen Magazine.
