Here is some of what church and ministry leaders, including event hosts, have to say about the ministry of FaithSearch International.
Thank you again for the powerful teaching you gave our church on Sunday morning. Your knowledge and insight into the Word of God and the natural world are encouraging and inspiring. We appreciate the relationship we have developed over the years and look forward to it continuing.
-LG Pastor, Event Host
Dr. Don Bierle and the FaithSearch ministry has blessed our congregation immensely throughout our many years of partnership. Surprised by Faith is a favorite among our Christian education offerings on Sunday mornings, and this resouce has been effectively used in a variety of formats within our congregation including groups large and small as well as individual instruction. I highly recommend this resource as one that changes not only minds but hearts as well.
-Kirk Flaa Senior Pastor, Abiding Savior Free Lutheran Church
FaithSearch provides an invaluable resource in defending key issues of Christianity. [It] provides the believer a renewed confidence in their faith, while the skeptic is challenged in their unbelief.
–Jeff Meyer Senior pastor
[FaithSearch] International is making a significant contribution to the body of Christ. Dr. Bierle's FaithSearch effectively evangelizes and disciples people. It has been very well received at Wooddale Church, and has added a new dimension to our evangelism ministry. I enthusiastically recommend it.
–Dr. Leith Anderson Wooddale Church (Eden Prairie, MN)
Surprised by Faith book
Don Bierle's book Surprised by Faith has proven itself to be a great tool at enlightening and reinforcing Christian beliefs. To know what a person believes is a good first step in the journey of Christian faith. To know why a person believes what he or she believes is the all-important next step which solidifies a person's faith. In his book Surprised by Faith, Don Bierle gives historical, archaeological, and scientific facts that aid the inquiring mind in discerning "why" to believe "what" they believe. I heartily recommend his book.
-Reverend D. John Cline Pastor, McLaurin Memorial Baptist Church
The "Discovery" presentation [gives] information which totally confronts a skeptics view of what the Bible is and why they disbelieve it. This information is rarely presented in the church today and should be understood by every believer so that they may give an answer to the hope that lies within them.
FaithSearch was a shot in the arm for our congregation. We had a number of people grow in their faith and their understanding of their relationship with God. We have seen an increased interest in Bible study and discipleship programs as a result. We've also seen an increased interest in peoples' willingness and desire to share their faith in Christ with others.
– Tim Jones Senior pastor

Surprised by Faith book
We have been extremely blessed to have had Dr. Don Bierle speak to our congregation over the years! He has strengthend, educated, and encouraged our people in dealing with difficult questions concerning evolutionary theories and secular thinking. His book Surprised by Faith is a must read! Packaged within a personal journey of faith, Bierle gives brilliant and compelling evidence for answering six of the most important questions we can ask.
