Why the Passion for Truth?

In college, Jeanne was a faith casualty, like reportedly up to 70 to 75% of today’s college students. That’s why she is passionate about passing on biblical truth to upcoming generations. Besides her many years of personal study in Scripture and sitting under solid Bible teachers, she also received intensive training in the biblical worldview under Chuck Colson and his team at BreakPoint. She was commissioned as a BreakPoint Centurion in 2006 and a Colson Fellow in 2015.

Warner Wallace, and Steve Arterburn. She also featured a press conference with Dr. Ravi Zacharias on her show.
