In the most recent edition of EQUIPPED, we announced we would be taking applications for CAA Pilot Chapters, and held a book giveaway contest for those who applied. As the Christian Apologetics Alliance (CAA) celebrated our fourth anniversary on March 27, 2015, we are so thankful for the way the CAA Community discusses a wide variety of important apologetics topics; offers mentorship, encouragement, and support to one another as we grow together in our understanding of apologetics; provides a platform for sharing about a wide variety of apologetics resources, conferences, educational opportunities, debates, and so on; and develops friendships and collaborations within the kingdom of God.
We want to commemorate these four years of being in community online by implementing a new pilot program for in-person CAA Chapters.
CAA Chapters are communities for CAA members local to each other to meet regularly and collaborate together and with other local ministries. CAA Chapter members enjoy all the same benefits of interacting in our online environment, as well as developing relationships on an authentic, in-person level. These groups are founded in and built on prayer and dependence on God, and they are fundamentally intended to be a means by which we love our neighbors. Love of God and others is the spiritual core and founding principle of these communities; it isn’t about an apologetics junkies club.
