Led by Frank Turek and other Christian apologists, Cross Examined exists to address the problem that 3-out-of-4 Christian youth leave the church while in college, many because they are intellectually skeptical. In addition to I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be An Atheist, CrossExamined.org presenters address other topics young people face today. The ministry also has a television show on the NRB network (DirecTV channel 378) and an app.

We deliver the boxes to the nearest distribution center where they are sent worldwide. Plymouth routinely packs and ships more than 100 boxes.
