Debate Team

Challenge yourself to be an agent of critical thought, clear and compelling speech, and persuasive argumentation. OBU’s debate coach, Professor Loyd, invites you to “enter the fray in the arena of ideas.” 

Our nationally ranked team has traveled from Washington to Kentucky and various universities in-between challenging other scholars and pursuing Gods’ Kingdom as they research, advocate, and defend arguments related to political, social, and economic topics. 

Proverbs 18:17 “The one who states his case first seems right, until another comes and examines him” is inspiring to the members of the OBU Debate Team.
