First SOBA Class Graduates | The Institute for Creation Research

First SOBA Class Graduates


The Institute for Creation Research’s School of Biblical Apologetics (SOBA) is proud to announce the graduation of its first class.

Nine students have completed their Christian Education degrees with a joint major in Biblical Education and Apologetics—eight with master’s degrees and one with a bachelor’s degree. Each student earned one or more of the academic minors Genesis Studies, Creation Research, Sacred Humanities, Christian Leadership and Communication, Specialized Ministries, Creation Theology, and Christian School Teaching.

ICR launched SOBA in 2009 on its Dallas, Texas, campus to promote biblical apologetics by providing postsecondary education programs. SOBA is founded upon an unwavering commitment to the Bible’s inerrant authority and the historical and theological importance of Genesis 1–11. The program focuses on training students to understand and communicate the biblical creation apologetic, especially in a culture where biblical compromise de-emphasizes the importance of the Scriptures.

Congratulations to all our graduates!
