Where Science and Faith Converge

RTB’s Scholar Community provides opportunities for scientists, theologians, physicians, philosophers, and other professionals to explore connections between science and faith. Our goal is to recruit and train scholar-evangelists to bring our transformational message of science-faith integration to STEMM-oriented (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, medicine) Christians and those who are skeptical of the integration of science and the Christian faith.

Scholar-evangelists are committed to reputable scholarship and to actively sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. RTB equips members to grow in confidence in sharing their faith more effectively. We provide workshops, courses, coaching, and opportunities to network with like-minded professionals interested in investigating the harmony between God’s Word and God’s world from an old-earth creation perspective.
