Kevin works to ensure that every student and adult in VCA and The Village Baptist Church is trained to live out a Biblical Worldview; loving God with all their heart, soul, mind, and loving others. He oversees regional, national, and international missions at The Village. Kevin prepares high school and college students to stand firm in their faith and to be missional on their campuses and adults to pass on the faith to their children and

“Kevin’s expertise in youth culture and apologetics makes him a
potent combination of authenticity, urgency, and relevance.” 

Kevin Yi, Youth Pastor
Church Everyday, Northridge, CA

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Kevin as a colleague in student ministry. Kevin has the ability to
connect with students and holistically implant the essentials of the Christian faith by teaching, loving,
and mentoring them. Kevin’s students are not only great defenders of the faith, but they go on the
offensive drawing many other students to Jesus Christ. I highly recommend Kevin as an expert in
training and mentoring students!”

Dr. Ross Hickling, Ph.D.; U.S. Marshals Service, Retired;
Founder, Shield Your Faith; UNC Greensboro Chapter Director, Ratio Christi

“Kevin Duffy has been an extremely influential part of the reason that our church focuses so much on
boldly engaging with the culture in love. His approach opened the eyes of our people (young and old)
to reach out and not be afraid to interact with those who share a different worldview. He provided a
way to take our practical knowledge of apologetics, and do something about it. I am very grateful to
have had the opportunity to learn from him and appreciate the fact that I can continue calling on him
for advice even months after our event.” 

- Tim Handrick, Director of Youth Ministries, Immanuel
Lutheran Church, Loveland, CO

"Three out of four Christian students lose their faith when they go to college. We are losing them to
the secular culture. As a speaker and the international director of CrossExamined.org, this is
something I get to witness daily. Our high school and college students need to be equipped not only to
defend their faith but to influence the culture with the light of Christianity. There's no one better to
train your kids in worldview and apologetics than Kevin Duffy. His ability to connect with them paired
with his vast experience and knowledge in the field make Kevin, in my opinion, one of the leading
experts in the field. As an apologist and father of two, I cannot think of anyone better than Kevin to
train my kids to make an eternal impact in the world we live in today."

and Itinerant Speaker for CrossExamined.org
