My name is Carson Weitnauer and I started Reasons for God in order to resolve your doubts and renew your purpose in life.
In my daily work, I serve as Innovator, Online Community for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. This website is an independent project.
Throughout the blog, my goal is to maintain a respectful and inviting tone to the conversation. I work hard to avoid name-calling, ridicule, and just being mean. If you think I’ve erred in that regard, please let me know.
A Fuller Biography
Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, my fascination with philosophy, theology and apologetics started in high school. I then specialized in philosophy during my undergraduate degree at Rhodes College and at Oxford University, and broadened my studies to include theology and Biblical studies while obtaining an M.Div. degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
For ten years I served as a campus pastor, interacting with students about the whole range of life’s big questions. My first year was an internship with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Emory University. I continued to serve with InterVarsity for two years in Memphis at Rhodes College and then for another four years at Harvard University. After seven years with InterVarsity, I founded Telos Ministries with the support of my church home, Church of the Cross. Through Telos Ministries, I and a staff team mentored students at Harvard, Boston College Law School, Boston University, and other schools in Boston.
In 2013, my wife and I returned to Atlanta, and I began to serve as the Associate Director of the U.S. Speaking Team for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.
I also serve as an administrator for the Christian Apologetics Alliance (CAA), an online networking community for thousands of Christian apologists. The CAA includes an outstanding variety of thinkers, writers, scholars, and volunteers; it is my joy to partner with them in providing a reasoned defense of the Christian worldview.
I married up, and my wife and I are the happy parents of two wonderful children.

Behind the Scenes:
The three dot logo incorporates the ‘therefore’ symbol. The three dots, arranged in a triangle, are used to represent the conclusion of an argument. They also symbolize the Trinity.
Reasons for God is hosted by BlueHost. I’ve tried a number of ‘premium’ hosting solutions, but keep returning to BlueHost for the affordable price, the excellent support, and the very powerful options they give their end users for customization. Whenever I’ve needed to do something a little more complicated than normal, they’ve been accommodating – and often already had a simple solution in place for me to use (like one click installations of software).
