Bring Me to You
Want to bring accessible apologetics training to your group? Talk to me about speaking at your next event!
I’ve presented alongside expert apologists like J.P. Moreland at medium and large events. As a former youth pastor, I’ve trained young people at student leadership conferences at Azusa Pacific University and Biola University. I’ve also spoken at over 200 weekend church services in the United States and the Philippines.
As a professor, I’ve taught Christian Apologetics courses at Western Seminary and William Jessup University, where I now teach my fully-accredited, online apologetics class while living in Dallas. I also conduct church workshops to train youth and adult groups in a way that’s simple to get and easy to remember.
I help Christians defend the faith with confidence.

Standalone Conference Presentations
Using Stories, Objects and Illustrations. This fast-paced lesson will help you make ideas that have to do with defending the faith simple to get and easy to remember. From everyday responses to the problem of evil, the evidence for God and how to illustrate our need for Jesus.
Does Evil Disprove God? Discover how the problem of evil—which seems to be an argument against God—turns out to be an argument for God. In this practical talk, Mikel surveys the logical, evidential and emotional challenges presented by evil and compares the challenges of the atheist alternative with the hope that we have in Jesus.
Standalone Youth Talks
FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions. Get real answers to questions like, “Do faith and reason mix?” “How do we know Christianity is true?” “Isn’t it intolerant to say others are wrong about God?” and “How can I talk to my friends about my faith without making it all weird?” This interactive talk shows students an easy, no-pressure way to start talking to their friends about Jesus.
What If It’s True? How God Makes a Difference. This talk helps students discover that if God isn’t real, life has no real meaning. But if God is real, we have real value and real purpose in life. Students will also learn three good reasons to begin your investigation of world religions with Christianity. Great for skeptics and truth seekers!
The Accessible Apologetics Workshops
Introduction to Apologetics: Why Defend My Faith? This makes a great introduction to an apologetics series. You’ll dive into Scripture to discover the importance of being prepared to give reasons for what you believe. You’ll also practice giving biblical responses to popular “Christian” objections to apologetics.
Faith and Reason: How Do I Know Christianity is True? Discover the relationship of faith and reason as well as the difference between knowing and showing Christianity is true. You’ll also learn how to respond to popular slogans like, “That’s true for you, but not for me.”
Evidence for God: Is God Real? You’ll learn three arguments for the existence of God based on creation, design and morality. I’ll explain how the solution to the problem of evil can make a huge difference in the way we face tough times.
Fact or Fiction: Can I Trust My Bible? Discover how we can know that Old Testament and the New Testament are reliable, historical documents. You’ll learn how to respond to claims that the Bible has been changed or that entire books of the Bible have been suppressed or lost.
Dead or Alive: Did Jesus Rise From The Dead? Learn how to confidently discuss the evidence for Jesus’ historic resurrection with seekers and skeptics alike. Discover five historical facts, using mnemonic devices and memorable visuals, which both build the case for Jesus’ resurrection and expose the flaws of naturalistic challenges.
