Consider how often you hear a message, a good answer to a tough question, or attend an event or conference; then find yourself wishing that some individual in your sphere of influence was there at that very moment.
These “teachable” moments are difficult to predict or plan. Family, friends, co-workers, those you wish to have a deeper grasp of the reality of Christ, are often simply not ready—or comfortable—going to a church service or some event that is overtly “evangelistic.”
Perhaps you sense your friend is open to discussion and exploration of spiritual issues, but, the timing just seems to be off.
That is why we created the Explore the Evidence Community Breakfast. Why a breakfast? We live busy lives and sometimes it’s easier to make an encounter with truth accessible through casual gathering, as opposed to a more formal event, or a personal one, such as a dinner banquet, Sunday morning service, or in-home study.
A breakfast is as casual as you can get. View some of our past speakers!
When we organize a community breakfast, here are the primary features or goals we like to see at the event.
- To bring a community together for a learning experience
- Provide an opportunity to invite family, friends, and coworkers to a non-threatening presentation
- Featuring a keynote speaker who offers an evidenced-based, intriguing, entertaining, presentation which will encourage discussion and further personal interaction
- Demonstrates that faith is reasonable; and that biblical faith can be supported by evidence
- To provide opportunities to dialogue on difficult issues we all face
We invite you to partner with us! You can attend one of our Explore the Evidence events or perhaps set the stage to host your own. We’ll help you make the most of it by bringing dynamic speakers trained in addressing a variety of topics in an open, intriguing, and interesting way. Here are just a few of the topics we have to offer:
- The Fingerprints of God: Intelligent Design (Does God Exist?)
- Understanding different world views
- Do all roads (religions) lead to the same way?
- Miracles or Magic: a comparative look at psychics, miracles of faith, and modern day paranormal claims
- Making Sense of Creation and Evolution
- The Magic of Christmas
- Or, do you have a topic in mind? Our research staff can assist in putting together a presentation to suit your goals for your community!

Here’s a short message from Joe Komarek about our next upcoming community Breakfast:
FaithSearch International is hosting our sixth “Explore the Evidence” Community breakfast Saturday morning February 25, 2017 (8:00 – 9:30 am) at the Wayzata Country Club. Our key note speaker will be Michael O. Wise, Ph.D., Ph.D. He is a Scholar-in-Residence, Professor of Hebrew Bible and Ancient Languages at the University of Northwestern, St. Paul.
Hundreds of Millions of people around the world acknowledge the Passover & Easter Weekend as a major religious holiday. We will investigate this Jewish and Christian based holiday from numerous angles and see where the evidence leads us.
We hope to discover reasonable answers to the following questions:
Is there any credible truth to the resurrection of Jesus being true? Did Jesus like bunnies? Was there really a crucifixion and burial? Did the Romans use nails and publicly humiliate criminals? Did the Roman Governors’ seal on the tomb have any significance? Don’t the Gospel’s disagree on the actual accounts of what happened at the empty tomb? Is not Easter a pagan holiday that should be ignored?
We hope you will join us! Enjoy a delicious breakfast and personal interaction as we Explore the Evidence for the Resurrection and true meaning of Easter.
