Larry Blythe

Larry Blythe, B.A. (Pastoral Theology), M.A.A. (Apologetics), Apologia Online Academy Director and Teacher – Larry was raised in a Christian home in California. He became a Christian around the age of 9, and later committed to full time ministry. He studied Pastoral Theology at Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College in Southern California where he received his B.A. in 1982. He pastored for about 15 years as an Associate Pastor/Student Ministries (Youth Pastor). During that time, he spoke at numerous youth rallies, camps and other junior high and high school events including teaching seminars for youth pastors with Word of Life Clubs and other student ministry organizations. After years of witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other people deceived by false religions and other aberrant groups, Larry developed a counter-cult ministry reaching many Jehovah’s Witnesses for Christ. This led him to seeking out further education in the area of apologetics – defending the historical Judeo-Christian faith.
