Dr. Ken Ford is a native of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, living in the Rockwall for the last 23 years with his wife Holly. Ken is a practicing radiologist at American Radiology Associates, P.A., and also serves as an elder at Eastridge church of Christ in Rockwall. His fascination with
the study of apologetics began in medical school. Seeing the incredible design and interdependent intricacy of the organ systems of the human body literally screamed, “There Must Be a God”!
Seeing God’s amazing handiwork has inspired a life-long study of apologetics, and Ken has enjoyed teaching the subject to bible classes, youth retreats, and high school classes. Ken and Curt have teamed up to teach this subject from the perspectives of a physician and a trial attorney, making
for a unique and effective presentation of evidence for God’s existence and involvement in our lives.
It is our hope that this workshop will strengthen your faith in these troubling and challenging times for faith in Christ, and equip you to “always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you”.
