Stand For Truth (SFT) exists for one purpose - to reach unchurched students in public schools with the gospel. Launched in 2011, our team has held events at more than 2,000 schools across the nation, impacting hundreds of thousands of students. Our 2 step strategy is simple. 1 - we work with a school to schedule a high quality, character-education school assembly during the school day. 2 - we work with local ministries and churches to schedule an evening outreach where students can come back to hear the gospel and connect with local Christian leaders.

In 2018, SFT launched an entirely new initiative to complement our current strategy. LifeWise Academy is a released time religious instruction program which provides Bible education to public school students during school hours. After we prove the concept in several pilot communities, we plan to launch programs in communities all over the nation. Learn more at lifewiseacademy.com
