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 studying under and working with leading Christian apologists while earning my Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics at Biola University and completing my Master of Theology (Th.M) at Dallas Theological Seminary.

I help Christians defend the faith with confidence.

apologetics-speaking-mikelToday, I teach Christian Apologetics and World Religion online for William Jessup University.

Here in Dallas, I also get to work with Darrell Bock at the Hendricks Center at DTS where I manage the Table Podcast, and write cultural engagement content for the Center’s blog as well as one of the top theological journals in the world: Bibliotheca Sacra. 

My story

I was born in Illinois but grew up in the Philippines. That’s where I decided to become a follower Jesus when I was about 6 years old. 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?

mikel-delrosario-borderBecause 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 14 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!” Start off with my top 10 articles on the basics of defending the faith. 

After that, check out some of my greatest hits from around the blog:
