About Educate for Life

Educate for Life is a non-profit organization started by Kevin Conover which offers home school classes, online classes and seminar classes on Christian Apologetics. Educate for Life exists to present and advocate for the truth of the Bible and to explain how to practically apply its teachings to culture and life. This is accomplished by:

  1. Providing solid Bible apologetics curriculum for teachers and parents.
  2. Building an online live Bible apologetics school for home school, public school, and private school students.
  3. Providing a one-to-one mentoring program with a focus on relationships.
  4. Advocating for private school choice in California.

 


 

Apologetics comes from a Greek word meaning “to defend.” The goal of Educate for Life is to help students understand why it is more logical, reasonable and beneficial to believe and follow the Bible than any other philosophical worldview. As you can see from the statistics in the video above, this is a very important need today. Educate for Life classes cover topics ranging from evolution and creation to world religions, homosexuality, “separation of church and state”, biblical history, biblical authority and others. These classes can be taken for credit at some Christian schools.
