What is the Brazos Valley Rhetoric Club?
We are a Christian Homeschool Family Speech and Debate Club for families in the Brazos Valley area. We are also affiliated with the National Christian Forensics and Communication Association (NCFCA).
We provide a means for Home School students to learn and exercise analytical and oratorical skills, addressing life issues from a Biblical world view in a manner that glorifies God.
1Peter 3:16 “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.”
We also facilitate club meetings every Tuesday from 4:00-8:00 PM at Emmanuel Baptist Church, conferences, and tournaments in the Brazos Valley area.
Speech and Debate is a learning experience for everyone. We would love to help you, your student, or your friends to become better communicators for Christ. Here are a few ways you can participate:
If you are interested in joining ANY speech and debate club, here are a few very helpful things you can do to see what its like:
- Judge a tournament: We would recommend that you do this first, as the tournaments are the essence of what speech and debate is. You can see a complete calendar of Texas NCFCA tournaments here.
- Visit a club meeting: After you have been to a tournament, look for a club in your area and visit a few of their meetings. Some clubs close to the Brazos Valley Area are the Houston Logic & Rhetoric Club and the Austin Rhetoric Club. The Brazos Valley Rhetoric Club meets every Tuesday from 4:00-8:00 PM, and we would love to have you visit us.
If you are a former competitor in the NCFCA and you are in the Brazos Valley area, we can take your experience to the next step. There are opportunities for you to teach, coach, mentor, or just hang out and make a difference by being a Godly example. To find out more about how you can get involved, visit our Alumni page.
