SPEAKERS' BIOS

MARTY CLAPP

 

Recognizing that most Christians today do not feel adequately prepared to respond to the tough questions and issues they face in today’s culture, Marty’s objective is twofold: train other Christians - whether youth or adult - to share the gospel more confidently and effectively. Secondly, to equip them with the tools they need to persuasively defend Christianity and Christian values in the public arena. As a Chandler resident since 1962, Marty is enjoying his new role as a grandparent.
