The Academy is arranged to provide a solid intellectual foundation, as well as a coherent, real-world application of a scriptural worldview and Christian cultural philosophy.

The first half of the program provides a thorough introduction to Christian philosophy and cultural theology. The second half of the program surveys our Christian cultural legacy and the role believers should play in the defense and advancement of the scriptural perspective.

Delegates will live, eat, pray, and study together throughout the program. Each day consists of morning prayer and worship, lectures, group discussion, communal meals, free time and leisure activities and space for quiet reading and reflection.

Faculty members possess a reputation for Christian faithfulness and intellectual excellence, as well as experience in the work of cultural transformation. They are apologists, philosophers, theologians, physicians, educators, business leaders, pastors, authors, artists, and lawyers.


The H. Evan Runner International Academy brings together faculty and delegates from around the world for an intensive 10-day training program.
