A Morning of Friends and Faith

Thursday, May 2, 2024 at the Forum River Center

7:00 – 8:30 AM


2024 Speaker – Author. Apologist. Evangelist.


We are pleased to have apologist and author Lee Strobel (The Case for Christ) returning to Rome as one of our speakers alongside Roman Billy Moore. Moore is featured in Strobel’s book “The Case for Faith”. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in Georgia. Fortunately his story doesn’t end there. After receiving Jesus as his personal savior, he spent the remaining 16 years ministering to others on death row. Hours before he was to be executed his sentence was commuted and ultimately he was freed. This is a powerful story of a man’s redemption through God’s grace and mercy.

Lee has been described in the Washington Post as “one of the evangelical community’s most popular apologists.” He was educated at the University of Missouri (Bachelor of Journalism degree) and Yale Law School (Master of Studies in Law degree). He was a journalist for fourteen years at The Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, winning Illinois’ highest honors for both investigative reporting and public service journalism from United Press International.

After probing the evidence for Jesus for nearly two years, Lee became a Christian in 1981. He subsequently became a teaching pastor at three of America’s largest churches and hosted the national network TV program Faith Under Fire. In addition, he taught First Amendment law at Roosevelt University and was Professor of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University.

In 2017, Lee’s spiritual journey was depicted in an award-winning motion picture, The Case for Christ, which showed in theaters around the world. The movie was on Netflix for three years. Lee won national awards for his books The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, The Case for a Creator, and The Case for Grace. His latest books are The Case for Miracles and The Case for Heaven .

The Christian Post named Lee among the top evangelicals who had made an impact in 2017. He was selected as one of the thirty most influential Christian thinkers of the past two millennia in the 2019 book Faith Thinkers, written by Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Jr.
