WHO IS THE BEARDED APOLOGIST?

My name is Dylan.  I like coffee, theology, books, and of course beards.  I am a husband, a father, an apologist, and most importantly a believer in Jesus and his gospel of grace.

I am also a full time student-pastor in Waco, TX (nope, I don’t know Chip and JoJo).  I also get the opportunity to travel and speak to different groups about apologetics and evangelism.  I speak at DNOWs, conferences, stand-alones, and any other place someone will have me.

I’d love to partner with you to make much of Jesus and lead others to a Jesus shaped life.

WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?

“I have known Dylan for years and he has always been one of those friends in my life that could make me laugh in one moment and think deeply the next. He is serious about truth but knows how to communicate his message in a winsome and engaging way. When I grow up I want to be just like Dylan.”

  • Dr. Leighton Flowers – Director of Apologetics, Evangelism at BGCT, Professor at Trinity Theological Seminary

 

“Dylan spoke at our DNOW weekend and is someone who takes the Gospel seriously and lives in that manner. While still holding the gravity of what he preaches, he bears warmth, love, and knowledge.”

  • Ben Fountain – Student Pastor – Waco, TX

 

“There are times in life when some of the most unique individuals cross your path. It so happened when Dylan Manley crossed mine. His humor, wit, and absolute creativity stands out immediately, but what separates Dylan is his love for Christ and those in whom He died for. Dylan’s presentation of the scriptures is solid, unique and profound. His understanding of culture is met head on with his apologetic style. You will be blessed, challenged, and gain a deeper love for the Lord when inviting Dylan Manley to speak at your next event!”
