Mark Farnham has been teaching Apologetics in local churches for more than a decade. His study of Apologetics has opened doors to interact with all kinds of unbelievers, from doctoral students in philosophy at a Philadelphia University, to Muslims inside the mosque, to everyday people on the streets of Lancaster, PA. He is an engaging speaker who combines simple, clear explanations with gripping personal illustrations from fascinating encounters with unbelievers of all kinds.
As a former pastor, Mark understands the frustration of trying so many "Come and See" events with little apparent fruit. By training church members to confidently “Go and Tell,” apologetics strengthens the faith and witness of the entire church. His training seminars are aimed at average church members who want to become prepared and confident to share their faith with anyone they meet.
Mark is Professor of Apologetics and Director of the Pre-Seminary Major at Lancaster Bible College in Lancaster, PA. Previously he taught systematic theology and apologetics at the seminary level for eleven years. Prior to that he served as senior pastor in New London, CT for seven years. Mark earned a PhD in Apologetics from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He holds a Master of Theology degree in New Testament from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a Master of Divinity degree from Calvary Baptist Seminary. For several years he taught as an adjunct professor of World Religion at Strayer University in Allenton, PA. He has also done graduate and postgraduate studies at Harvard Divinity School and Villanova University.
