Our Vision and Identity:  

Heroes of the Cross is the Christian Apologetics and Church History teaching ministry of Ben LaCorte.  It is also a radio ministry in partnership with TWR.org.  The Mission of “Heroes” is to serve the Church by equipping her to defend her great truths, to stand on her history, and to proclaim her life giving message.

We are committed, that by the grace of God, through fervent prayer, this generation will retain their faith even while immersed in a secular environment. They will learn to explain the great truths of Christianity in love. And they will confidently engage a wayward culture with conviction  and clarity, while keeping the Gospel of Jesus Christ front and center at all times.

The Team:

Our entire team is excited to be a part of Heroes of the Cross Radio Ministry.  The Radio Ministry is in partnership with Trans World Radio (TWR).   TWR speaks hope into the world in 230 languages by radio, and online at TWR360.  Our goal at Heroes of the Cross is the same as TWR’s: “to engage millions in 160 countries with biblical truth in their heart language. For more than 60 years, God has equipped TWR to lead people from doubt to decision to discipleship.”
