Search was founded in 1977 to create opportunities for stimulating, sensitive, and respectful dialogue for those who wrestle with the big questions of life. We believe that every worldview involves faith in some form, but we are committed to applying reason and evidence to our search for ultimate answers to life’s big questions. The way we answer – or fail to answer – these questions affects all aspects of life. We seek an intellectually robust faith, which leaves room for doubt and discussion.
Many people believe we can never have certainty when it comes to these big questions, but we believe the pursuit of truth is a necessary ingredient in any 'examined faith'. We are confident that the best answers satisfy our minds and provide peace, fulfillment, meaning, purpose, and hope for the world to come.
The brightest and best thinkers throughout history have wrestled with life’s ultimate questions, and we’ve invested thousands of hours researching the most challenging, satisfying, and interesting answers. We’ve sifted through books, lectures, manuscripts, and contemporary conversations with some of the leading intellectuals in the world to ensure that we are able to provide well structured and meaningful answers to these legitimate questions.
As a result of our research, we’ve created some tools to help people on their own journeys. If you lead a group in your area you may find these materials helpful. Click here to learn more about our individual materials. To place an order, call (800) 617-3272.
In 28 cities across the country, our 33 full-time and 11 associate staff are impacting their communities for Christ. They each bring a unique set of backgrounds and gifts into their cities. Among our staff are industry leaders, real estate developers and investors, a lawyer, a banker, a doctor, three former NFL players, an Olympic medalist, a country music artist, a dozen former pastors, and veterans of Young Life, Campus Crusade, and several other ministries.
But they share one essential thing in common: they are all passionate about a relational approach to reaching men and women for Christ.
