DEBATE

NCFCA has established a dynamic program of three types of formal debate with the ultimate goal of training young people to be able to think critically and communicate effectively about all issues in a manner that pleases God. Each style offers unique educational opportunities while including a focus on research skills, respectful argumentation, refutation, organization, and effective presentation and speaking skills. Because competitors must debate both sides of a topic, they learn to advocate for and oppose a proposition without compromising their own beliefs.
