The Zacharias Institute is a conference center and training facility within RZIM that offers short term courses designed to instruct and equip all who desire to effectively share the gospel of Jesus Christ and answer the common objections to Christianity with gentleness and respect. We have multiple events this year and next, see below for more information and we hope to see you soon at the Zacharias Institute!

“The Zacharias Institute is a place to train and equip all who desire to effectively share the gospel of Jesus Christ while also gently and respectfully answering the common objections to Christianity. The space will also be used to house the global headquarters for RZIM,” explained Ravi Zacharias, RZIM Founder and President. “The goal is to help train apologists from every walk of life—pastors, youth pastors, business people, those in the arts, young people as they prepare for university, professional athletes, and homemakers. Apologetics is no longer a luxury; it is indispensable in our time. The Scriptures remind us to be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is within us. As the Institute builds the vision, we hope the impact will be felt globally.”

The tag line of the Zacharias Institute is, The Questions of Culture, the Invitation of Christ. “People have tough questions. Answering those questions faithfully unlocks the door to faith. Avoiding those questions leads to unbelief and anger toward God. Engaging the mind unlocks the heart, and therefore we take people’s questions very seriously,” said Vince Vitale, who serves as Director of the Institute. “Our vision is big. But the roots that Ravi and Margie have put down over the last four decades run very deep, the team they have rallied around them is up to the task, and I truly believe that our God can bring to pass everything that he has put on our hearts to dream for as we seek to reach this generation and the generations to come.”
