Ask Dr. Farnham

We’re excited to announce that Dr. Mark Farnham is returning to the show for an “Ask Anything” episode, where he’ll respond to questions from you, our listeners!

Dr. Farnham is a professor of apologetics at Lancaster Bible College and possesses experience and skill in answering skeptics’ hard questions about Christianity.

Submit a question to Dr. Farnham by Tuesday, December 12 and we’ll do our best to discuss it on the episode, which will air Wednesday, December 20. Maybe it’s an objection to the faith you’ve been struggling to answer yourself, or how to respond to an unbelieving coworker on a certain cultural issue.

Whatever the question, be sure to tune in!

The Hosts

Chris Von Holt


Chris joined the Cedar Crest staff in June 2016. He placed his faith in Christ through preaching of God’s Word at camp the Summer before His senior year of High School. Chris then pursued preparation for vocational ministry through heavy local church involvement, two internships, earning a B.A in Biblical Studies, and is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree from Reformed Theological Seminary. He and his wife Courtney (2013) have three children, Theodore, Guinevere, and Rosemary. His passion is to encourage others to pursue Christ as their treasure through expositional preaching and meaningful relationships.

Loren grew up at Cedar Crest and entrusted his life to Christ through the ministries of the church at a young age. After earning his B.A. in Communications and English at Virginia Tech in 2019, he worked for ABWE International, a missions agency in Harrisburg, PA. There, he served as communications specialist and lead magazine editor for two years before the Lord directed him back to Cedar Crest. He and his wife Darby have been married two years and are expecting their first child in October.
