Meet Shannon

Shannon Holzer, Ph. D.

Dr. Shannon Holzer represents one of the fresh, young voices in America today. In light of recent decisions by the United States Supreme Court, the country has perhaps never been in greater need for clarity and sound ethics in regard to natural law and natural rights. A doctor of philosophy, Shannon equips and engages audiences with the reason and knowledge necessary to defend truth and inspire greatness in our culture.

A well-educated and experienced teacher and speaker, Shannon brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding to the public square. He speaks to broad audiences across the country and serves as a shining light in our ever-growing culture of darkness.

Shannon brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding to the public square.

‘I've known Dr. Holzer for a long time, having had the privilege of having him as a graduate student. Shannon is very well educated and informed about the central issues in religion, politics and society, and he is passionate to speak to these issues from a Christian point of view. He also is hungry to train others how to think about these crucial issues. If we are honest, it becomes clear that there is almost nowhere we can go to get training in this area of life. Thus, what Dr. Holzer offers is a rare gift to the church. I am happy to recommend his ministry to you.’
