Reasons for Jesus is an apologetics-based ministry run by Steven Bancarz that is dedicated to providing justification for a Biblical worldview and a rational defense for faith in Jesus Christ. On this site and YouTube channel, we will be looking at answers to questions, responses to objections, and positive reasons for why Jesus is exactly who he claimed to be: The Son of God and the only means of salvation.

We will also be addressing popular New Age ideas and practices so that believers (and unbelievers) can be fully convinced of the deception and futility of the New Age movement.  By pledging on a monthly basis, you will receive access to various perks mentioned on this Patreon page, and you will help support this ministry which is currently reaching hundreds of thousands to millions of people a month in the following ways:

Website

http://reasonsforjesus.com/ is the ministry website, which was launched in December of 2016 and currently has a monthly reach of 200,000 people.  It is our goal to provide readable, shareable, and engaging educational content from people who are qualified, accomplished, and professionals in their fields.  From historical evidence for Jesus to objections to Atheism, New Ageism, and everything in between, this website seeks to be a place where people of all ages can seek answers for questions about their faith.

Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/ReasonsforJesus/ is the official Facebook page for the ministry.  It was renamed from "Spirit Science & Metaphysics" to "Reasons for Jesus" near the end of 2016.  This ministry page has interesting engagement, since most of the followers of this page are still involved in the New Age.  While there is a lot of hostility, sarcasm, and opposition from followers on this page, the Christian following is continue to grow to balance this out.  Most importantly, people are being reached with the Gospel, God's word, and apologetic articles, as post from this Facebook page are seen by hundreds of thousands each month.

YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/stevenbancarz is the YouTube channel run by myself (Steven Bancarz), which has established itself as being the backbone of this ministry.  It currently is reaching about 300,000 or more in terms of views per month.

TV, radio, and public speaking

Lately, there has been a lot of opportunity for real world ministry, especially after the release of my new book "The Second Coming of the New Age" through Defender Publishing.  For example, I was recently on Olive Tree Ministries radio program with Jan Markell, an American broadcast network that airs on over 830 stations in the United States.  Coming up soon (Feb. 7th), I will be on Sid Roth's It's Supernatural to talk about the New Age movement and promote my new book, followed by a radio show with Moody Radio airing live on 70 + stations in the States on the 18th, and a presentation on the New Age movement in a comparative religions class at the Calvary Bible Institute in California on the 21st.    

By supporting this Patreon, you are helping contribute to the livelihood of the website, the function of the ministry, gear and expenses for video production and online developments, and any future projects Reasons for Jesus may be a part of.
