We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” – 2Cor 10:5 (NIV)
Don Quintana is a Chapter Director and Community Apologist in Sonoma County for Ratio Christi (RatioChristi.org). Ratio Christi (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’) is a non-profit, tax exempt (501c3) organization encouraging and strengthening the faith of Christian students at universities around the world through the use of intellectual investigation and apologetics while sharing Christ’s message and love to those that have yet to receive it.
Ratio Christi, a Christian Apologetics Alliance, places trained apologists in local communities in order to respond to the Secular Humanistic worldview and take their position on the frontlines in the battle for young minds. They function as Community Apologists serving local churches, and Campus Chapter Directors planting apologetics clubs at secular, liberal, religious, public, and private universities around the world. They also offer and present a Ratio Christi College Prep curriculum for Christian High School students.
Don is also a graduate of Cross Examined Advanced Instructor’s Academy and is certified to teach Dr. Frank Turek’s “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist” series, and J Warner Wallace’s Cold Case Christianity. He has a gift connecting with Christian Jr High, High School, and College Students. A Pastor for 25 years, his affable personality and generous sense of humor make him a favorite speaker, teacher, and mentor to young Believers. His passion is to help raise up a new generation of Christians who are ready, willing, and able to take on the lies of the world found in a new and “evangelistic” atheism. He finds that sound Christian Apologetics is critical in helping young Believers stand firm in their faith, as well as refute the lies of the world.
Speaking at churches, camps, on campuses, and at conferences, Don gives a thorough examination of “Jesus’ explanation of reality.” In doing so, he debunks the myths of evolution and spontaneous creation “irrefutably” proving that God must exist. He also reminds young Believers of a unique kind of beauty only found in Christianity and in the life and person of Jesus. The results are battle-hardened young Christians who can stand in the public marketplace of ideas and win victory after victory.
Don is a public speaker, published author, blogger and podcaster. He served for nearly 25 years in a variety pastoral ministries starting out as a College Pastor, then Singles Pastor, and moving into an Associate Pastor position. He finished his pastoral ministry planting a church in the San Francisco Bay Area, and serving as Senior Pastor for several years.
