Defending Christianity Podcast

Defending Christianity Podcast

The message of the Gospel is attacked every day by restless efforts and empty philosophies of this world. That is why Defending Christianity isn’t about making meaningless arguments or attempting to provoke empty debates– it is about preserving the redeeming message of the cross of Christ by using logic and reason to communicate why Christianity best explains reality. New episodes are released fortnightly on Thursdays at 10 AM Central.

About the Host

Levi Dade

Writer / Blogger / Podcast Host / Photographer

Levi Dade is a Mississippi native currently attending Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas. He created Defending Christianity in the Spring of 2020 convinced that the Church of Jesus Christ could do a better job at defending the faith. Since then, he's even more convinced! Defending Christianity is divided between the Defending Christianity Podcast and the Defending Christianity Blog. Both have the same mission: to give Christians a reliable resource of information so they will be able to offer the world a defense for the hope that's within them with truth and grace.
Levi's conviction is that by embracing a faith where the heart and mind are both used to love Christ and others, Christians are more capable of showing the love of Christ to others as they engage. Levi's prayer for the Church is that Christians will love Christ with their minds and use what they know to reach the world for his glory and his Kingdom alone.
Levi writes apologetics courses for an online ministry, CORE Leadership, which graciously provides free online courses to young adults, Christians, and youth for the purpose of discipleship. Levi is also a photographer for his university, and he started his photography business, Dade Photography, when he was in high school in 2017. You can typically find Levi reading a book, kayak fishing, hiking, writing, taking photos for his school's yearbook, or struggling to decide which one of these activities he should do!
