The WordTrax Story

When Ben LaCorte was in engineering school, he wondered why the professors couldn’t explain the simplest things like gravity. It wasn’t until Ben became a believer and enrolled in Seminary that his love for logic was satisfied.“When I studied Theology, the world finally made total sense.” says Ben.

Upon graduating from Shepherd’s Theological Seminary in Cary, North Carolina, Ben started WordTrax Apologetics Ministries. Later, in the summer of 2022, Ben started CREATIONTOURS.ORG: Teacher-led tours through local science museums, using the evolutionist’s home turf to teach Biblical Creation. Our Mission at CREATION TOURS is to use the “Wisdom of the World to Declare the Glory of God, and to equip parents to raise up the next generation of strong Christian Leaders.

To achieve this goal, we seek to influence young people between 1st and 12th grade. But there are only so many we can reach. Therefore, we enlist the entire family to raise up this generation. Almost every adult believer has the ability to influence the young people within their sphere. We have found that most mature believers are willing and even anxious to persuade their loved ones, but are unable to do so for lack of knowledge. Through CreationTours.Org and other minstries, we show them how.

Goal #1

Teach Gospel believers how to defend their faith in an ever more hostile environment, yet with gentleness and respect. Many college students who grow up in the church are suddenly released into the world. Their compass needles spin and they don’t know how to give a logical accounting for the hope that is in them. They seek after a lifeline. They call for help and are often given little with which to stay the course. R2B is dedicated to educating and encouraging such young adults, their parents, teachers and mentors.

Goal #2

Show non-believers that it’s safe to question what they’ve been programmed to believe all their lives and now take for granted as truth. All mankind has a kernel of truth that has been written on their hearts. Yet they suppress it. A goal of this ministry to help people use their innate ability to reason.

Mr. LaCorte, God has used you and your ministry to shape me into the man I am today and I look up to you as a mentor, teacher and brother/father in Christ. May God grant you many more years of life and continue to use you in great ways.”

Ben LaCorte

Ben LaCorte started WordTrax while teaching Christian apologetics to youth, college and adults at his Church. With master’s degrees in business and Theology, Ben speaks to Church groups, Seminaries and at local Christian Schools about defending the great truths. He organizes apologetics conferences and debates world religions as a way to demonstrate heart-to-heart engagement with non-believers. Ben’s new monthly video series equips the next generation of strong Christians to lead in today’s culture. Ben is married with three grown children, lives in North Carolina and likes to sail and play electric guitar. His primary passions are:

A) to educate and equip young people to take ownership of their faith, and to be able to defend what they believe with confidence and clarity to their skeptical peers; and

B) to teach mature adult believers how to raise up strong believers and protect them against the powerful cultural undertow which pulls them away from the safety of the Christian worldview.
