Minister takes the fight to understand faith to you

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

In alternative ways of worshiping, we've brought you everything from pole dancing, cowboy churches, tattoo ministries and biker churches.

Now, we bring you a ministry of online dialogues.

The minister lives in Washington and goes out into public squares and invites people to ask any kind of question about God, Jesus or the Bible.  Those dialogues are taped and posted online.

Four years ago, Rob Wachter said God called out to him.  We had a chat via the Internet.

"I was at a church service and I was praying for God to give me direction in ministry and I felt a specific calling in the same way Evangelists did when I was a student and just start answering questions and put it on film," Wachter said.

Wachter started going out into public squares and invited people to ask their toughest questions about Christianity.
 
Everything is taped and posted on his website: www.wisefaith.tv, YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter and Facebook.

"We deploy all of this new technology to get tidbits of info about Jesus out as quickly as possible," he said.

He said his ministry of online dialogues is a tool to reach non-believers and also equip believers on how to defend the Christian worldview.

"A lot of people have misconceptions about who Jesus is, what he said, what he taught; they have a lot of questions surrounding the Bible, how can you trust the Bible today, whether or not God exists and if he does who is he," he said.

Some of the conversations are controversial, some get a bit heated, and some get downright crazy.

Wachter said he welcomes different backgrounds and faiths.

"Everyone from atheists and agnostics to homosexuals, cross-dressers, unbelievers, Christians, Muslims, every potential world view you can imagine, I have dialogued with," he said.

Now, he's traveling the country to conduct and tape these dialogues.  He's in the process of working on a Christian TV segment and he provides teaching and training material to churches and Christian schools.
