Dear Friends & Supporters,

Most, if not all, of you are well aware of Fixed Point’s leadership transition that began at the end of last year. And understandably, many of you have questions: Where is Fixed Point going? Who’s in charge? In this update, it’s my honor to share the vision for Fixed Point’s next phase. (You can also click here for a brief ministry overview attached that outlines vision, mission, current/future programs, funding, needs, and more.)

First things first: If you don’t know me, I’m Ben Halbrooks, new Director of Operations at Fixed Point. I’ve worked for the ministry for more than a decade full-time as Media Director and am humbled to steward a work that has had a profound impact on my life and the lives of so many others. I also have more than 10 years of experience leading high school and college youth ministry, so I know how hungry young people are for the kind of work we do at Fixed Point. And my wife and I are proud parents of triplet 2-year-olds. But that’s an altogether different story.

For Fixed Point, this is the beginning of a new era. While some things will undoubtedly change, we are well-positioned to continue fulfilling our mission of challenging the unbelief of skeptics and equipping believers to confidently engage a secular world without compromising their faith. Coming soon: Fixed Point will be changing its name. For months, we’ve been hard at work under the hood laying the groundwork for a new brand identity that captures who we are in a fresh way. You’ll see us roll out those changes very soon.

So what else can you expect? From our founding in 2004, we’ve always produced high quality resources that bridge the sacred and secular. We’ve given platform to some of the foremost Christian thinkers and communicators of our day. We’ve engaged in key cultural issues and stood up for the truth of the Gospel over and against competing worldviews in the battle of ideas. Look for all of those things to continue in a big way, through articles, studies, videos, podcasts, series, events, and more:

  • Fixed Point’s very first regular ongoing program was its student Bible study. It continues to this day.
  • In December, we launched a new website that acts as a central hub for more than 500 resources.
  • Every Fixed Point debate is now available in full for free online, along with the regular release of short, topical clips for quick reference and sharing.
  • Moving forward, I’m pleased to announce that all of our digital resources will be free, available, searchable, and accessible to everyone.
  • We’ll continue producing short, episodic video series that “demolish arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God.” (2 Cor. 10:5) If you missed it, be sure to watch our interview with John Lennox on Stephen Hawking’s life and beliefs and catch up on episodes of Islam vs Christianity: What’s the Difference?
  • We’re 17 weeks into The Intersect, our exclusive weekly roundup of the internet’s most fascinating stories bridging sacred and secular. We cut through the media’s noise to keep you informed and prepared to have meaningful conversations where everyday life, faith, and culture connect.
  • We’ve been working on a new slate of original podcasts that are set to release soon.
  • Since this past winter, we’ve already grown our digital platform 10% to over 30,000 subscribed users.

More is coming (see the ministry overview for details), but that gives you a flavor for where we’re headed. In addition to the oversight of our board of directors, we’re also assembling a Spiritual Advisory team to provide theological accountability for future projects. You’ll hear more about all of these in the coming weeks, but for the time being, we earnestly need committed donors to see us through our leadership transition to a sustainable future. I ask you join us in believing our mission is larger than any one individual and well worth preserving and building. Any investment into Fixed Point, large or small, will go directly to kingdom ministry for eternal impact.

In a world that is increasingly corrosive to faith, people like you enable us to engage dangerous worldviews and stand up for the truth of the Gospel. If you already support our work, thank you for your partnership!

If you have any questions, please send us an email or call our office at (205) 414-6311. And if you’re in or around the Birmingham area, let’s grab lunch. I would enjoy any and every opportunity to share the vision for Fixed Point’s next phase.

In Christ,

Ben Halbrooks
Director of Operations
