Rob Lundberg, Director

Let me again welcome you to my website. On this page, I would like to share with you a little about myself, and my passion.

First let me share that I am a follower of Jesus Christ, who redeemed me out of apathetic skepticism in 1980. I got into apologetics as a result of the Holy Spirit drawing me to the gospel through several lines of evidence which validated the Christian faith.

As a result of my becoming a follower of His, I have been actively serving Him in a handful of arenas.

What do I do now?

I am a writer and a blogger who has had some of my posts featured and published on the Apologetics315 page as well as being a contributor with posts featured on The Poached Egg Apologetics Resource Page

I also have a few larger irons in the fire on responding to the new atheism, writings in response to religious pluralism, and an outline put together for a church apologetics manual.

Being a teacher and a writer, I have written and taught four courses on the subjects of entry level apologetics, worldviews, the authenticity of the Bible, and a full semester course on the resurrection of Jesus Christ for the Fredericksburg Bible Institute and Seminary (now Cornerstone College and Seminary) in Fredericksburg, VA.

I have also served as a professor in Upstate NY (at the Northeast Branch of Mid America Baptist Theological Seminary and the Hudson Valley Bible Institute, teaching courses on cult evangelism and apologetics, world religions, and church history.

In the past, I have served as a pastor. But currently, I make myself available for various venues to speak to churches, and to student groups. I also host a weekly podcast that addresses all kinds of topics engaging the Christian faith. If you would like me to come and speak to your church, I offer our Apologetics Boot Camp, as well as do a question and answer session. 

More about Rob. . .

While in NY and in Virginia, I have appeared on numerous radio and television programs, with the most recent being on Ratio Christi TV’s Truth Matters program on the NRB Channel (Click here to view the program).  I have also been interviewed on several podcasts on matters of apologetics issues and conversational evangelism.

You can find out more about my formal background by using the links below. Let me just say that as a missionary to the church and to the culture, my  view of the world does not just target the local college campuses and coffee shops. It also includes various venues, with a global focus.

One of those venues is wherever I find myself, which includes my job. I believe no matter where we find ourselves, we do not have to compartmentalize our Christian faith, unlike what the secularized culture would like us to think.  So whether it has been a mission trip to the Republic of Moldova or a Skype meeting reaching a medical college India or my job being a missionary to the auto industry, my understanding of today’s culture is from a worldview perspective, knowing how to communicate on various levels the truth claims of the Christian faith.

When you talk to me, you will find that I enjoy conversations ranging from sports, to trivial matters, all the way down to  the rigorous issues for why the Christian faith is true. As a moment by moment disciple of Christ, I seek to incorporate Christian apologetics as a spiritual discipline that undergirds my ministry of evangelism into my daily living.  Being a missionary and evangelist, my target is always the gospel.

I am currently serving as a “tent-maker” Chapter Director and Community Apologist with Ratio Christi and am the founder and director of Rob Lundberg Apologetics Ministries (RLAM). I am married to my lovely wife, Kathy, and we have a daughter Christine.

Here are some other ways you can see what I am up to. . .
