  • The concept for Stand to Reason (STR) is based on the conviction that Christianity and Christian values, if properly understood and properly articulated, can "stand to reason" in the public square. The truth is on the side of Christianity. Whether that truth will make a difference depends on whether Christians are equipped or not.
  • There's a crying need to equip rank-and-file Christians to defend Christian beliefs and values in the marketplace of ideas against people who don't understand our language, and who don't accept the Christian's source of authority. That need is especially acute for Christian gatekeepers--those Christians in positions of respect and influence in their community--doctors, lawyers, teachers, office-holders, business leaders, school board members--who must function in a public square that is increasing hostile to Christian values.
  • Our mission is to help average Christians to think more clearly about their faith and values, and to send them into the public square to defend classical Christianity. Stand to Reason is committed to cultivating the intellectual life in the defense of Christianity and in the nurture of Christian maturity.
  • Stand to Reason is not a counter-cult organization. It is not a political action group. Instead of demonstrations and boycotts it uses moral and rational suasion and fair-minded advocacy to make the point that Christianity is worth thinking about. It gives the average believer the tools of thought and the facts they need to stand to reason for the historic Christian faith and for classical Christian values. Stand to Reason aids Christians in communicating facts in a compelling, even- handed and gracious way.

What others have said. . .

Hank Hannegraaff

President, Christian Research Institute (CRI), author, Christianity in Crisis "I am delighted to hear of the birth of a brand new ministry called Stand to Reason. I have followed Greg Koukl's radio ministry for some time now, and appreciate his ability as a broadcaster as well as his heart for people. Greg's focus on equipping God's people for works of service so that the body of Christ might be built up and strengthened is much needed."

Dr. J.P. Moreland

Author, Scaling the Secular City and Does God Exist?-The Great Debate "There has never been a time in our culture when ministries like this one are so badly needed. And Greg Koukl is just the type of person to start such a ministry. I have known Greg Koukl and ministered with him long enough to say with joy and conviction that he is a man of tremendous talent, dedication, and integrity. His skill as a Christian thinker is well-developed, his gifts of communication are clear, and his heart to build Christ's kingdom and not his own are evident." Back to Top

Gregory Koukl

Founder and Chief Executive Officer, STAND TO REASON

Greg Koukl Photo Greg started out thinking he was too smart to become a Christian and ended up giving his life for the defense of the Christian faith. Since then, Greg has worked with Cambodian refugees in Thailand, college students in India, young people in high stress mountaineering programs in the U.S., and with Christians in seven communist countries (including the former Soviet Union) before the Iron Curtain came down.

A central theme of Greg's speaking and writing is that Christianity can compete in the marketplace of ideas when it's properly understood and properly articulated.

Greg has been a frequent guest on KABC's Religion On The Line in Los Angeles, and a regular on CBS TV's Today's Religion. He's been a guest on KFI, the top-rated secular talk station in Los Angeles. An award-winning writer, Greg is presently working with Dr. Frank Beckwith on a book dealing with moral relativism.

Greg received his BA in Bible from Azusa Pacific University, his Masters in Christian Apologetics at Simon Greenleaf University, and is working on his MA in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at Talbot School of Theology. He hosts his own radio talk show advocating clear-thinking Christianity and defending the Christian world view. Return to Top
