Hillary Morgan Ferrer was introduced to apologetics at age twelve and has been vocal about its impact of grounding her faith through many trials. She is active in both the intelligent design and apologetics communities. She has taught college prep Biology and Chemistry for five years, and is now pursuing Masters degrees in both biology (Clemson University) and apologetics (Biola University).
In the summer of 2016, Hillary founded "Mama Bear Apologetics," a ministry aimed at equipping moms in apologetics, as well as helping moms understand why it is important for them to be armed with answers to their children's tough questions about the faith. Hillary also currently serves in leadership with Ratio Christi Boosters spearheading the Youth Exodus Project (YEP) along with Julie Loos and Ryan Huxley.
Hillary has been happily married to her husband of ten years Dr. John Ferrer, a full-time teacher, writer, and apologist. Hillary and John minister as an apologetics team empowering and equipping the church to engage in an intelligent Christian faith. Thier monthly "Tough Questions of the Faith" class helps members of the church to answer apologetics questions like "How can there be a good God and so much evil in the world?" or "Was the killing of the Canaanites cruel?"
Julie Loos is the Director of Prayer and Women's Outreach for Ratio Christi.
She has 12 years of leadership in the Moms in Prayer International ministry serving as the Missouri State Coordinator for four years until stepping into her current volunteer role as their College Groups Facilitator.

Julie Loos lives with her husband and two sons in St. Louis, MO. She is sending her oldest son to college this year. Her other son is in high school. She enjoys studying God’s word, exercising, reading, gardening and cooking. You’ll usually find her not far from a cup of coffee and piece of dark chocolate..
Kathryn represents Ratio Christi Boosters in the mid-Atlantic region as an apologist and speaker. She is prepared to work closely with your church or school group to train your leadership team on apologetic instruction. Kathryn is sensitive to the dire need for young adults, upper school youth and their parents to be informed on how to use the best techniques to respond when questioned about their faith. She is also available to speak to your organization on controversial ethical topics which frequently silence Christians, as well as difficult topics, such as the problem of evil. Kathryn has trained in exegetical research and will be a regular contributor to our Boosters Blog Page. There she will share tips on how to prepare yourself and your children to defend your faith in the God of the Bible.
She is a cum laude graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. in economics. Kathryn is a licensed minister who has earned a Master of Divinity degree from the Baptist Theological Seminary. Her passion for speaking God’s Truth has led her to continue her education in the field of apologetics, as she is currently a doctoral candidate in the Ministry of Apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary. She is a member of the International Society of Christian Apologetics (ISCA) and the International Society for Women in Apologetics. Kathryn is also a writer, researcher, and gifted speaker. Over the past decade, she has served in church ministry as well as women’s ministries outside of the church. She has several years of experience engaging youth and adults on cultural and ethical issues with a biblical understanding. Kathryn has a passion for encouraging individuals to think about what they believe and why they believe it. She feels strongly about building confident Christians in order to prepare them to thoughtfully engage others in faith conversations. Her goal is always to equip Christians with a solid defense for their faith in God through Christ.
Kathryn is the director and founder of Living Into The Truth Ministries, an apologetic ministry based on the promises of Jesus that if we abide by his Word he will live in us just as he lives in the Father (John 14:15-20). Her ministry offers young adults and their parents a realistic look at how the Westernized culture has managed to create a mirage and a distortion of what it looks like to be a Christian.
