Del S. Potter, M.A.A.

Del is a 2017 graduate of Southern Evangelical Seminary where he received his M.A.A. in Christian Apologetics. To satisfy a requirement for school, and for his own theological curiosity, he began researching all the extant writings of the Pre-Nicene Christians (A.D. 98-325). Although his aim at the time was merely reference material for a seminary paper, what he learned about Christianity in the early centuries profoundly affected his life. What he discovered about these early Christians is that they were a courageous people who had (by comparison) more confidence and more faith, and yet less scripture was available to them. Del has spent the last 9 years as a Volunteer Outreach Pastor with the Kairos Prison Ministry International where it has provided him numerous opportunities to apply apologetics and early Christianity in defending the Triune God against the various false religious systems within the prison system. Del fears today we possess more scripture, study tools, and yet in some cases demonstrate less faith and experience more doubt. Del’s passion is to reach the lost with the love of Christ through solid Biblical seasoning and sound exegetical reasoning.
