Apologist Lisa Fields is the founder of the Jude 3 Project, a ministry with the intention of helping millennial and Generation Z Christians defend their faith through Scripture. As she was completing her Master of Divinity degree, she realized there was a need for apologetics that were specific to the Black American experience. The Jude 3 Project accomplishes this through a podcast, seminars and lectures, and numerous events, including an annual Courageous Conversations conference which gathers Black church leaders and theologians to discuss a variety of issues. In addition, Lisa Fields and Jude 3 have traveled to Historically Black Colleges and Universities to dispel racially based lies that stand in the way of effective evangelism. Lisa was recognized in Christianity Today for her impact on modern apologetics in the African American community.
In addition, Lisa has innumerable resources, videos, curriculum, and courses available for those who desire to defend and know their faith. Lisa breaks down and clarifies complex theological concepts in a way that equips listeners to apply and ultimately defend their faith as referenced in Jude 3. Furthermore, as a Black woman in a male-dominated discipline, she stands out as an innovator in modern Christian thought. May God continue to build on the foundation Lisa Fields has set.
