Who We Are
We are a Christian home school family rhetoric club. Our goal is to teach our students how to address life issues from a Biblical worldview and communicate in a manner that glorifies God.
What We Do
“Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how ye ought to answer every man.” Colossians 4:6
…communicate in a manner that glorifies God.
BVRC uses competitive speaking and debating to 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)Learn More
Over two semesters, the curriculum covers the eleven different speech events and the two debate types. It is not required that you participate in both speech and debate events, it is highly recommended. During all semesters, students will be actively participating in community activities and tournaments where they will experience the bulk of their learning.LEARN MORE
Some debate programs emphasize research skills; others emphasize theory and strategies. These are helpful skills. However, the most important purpose of debate is to train students to be seekers of truth who know what they believe and why, and who challenge their peers to do the same.Learn More
What Our Students Say
Here are some testimonials from some of our current students and alumni.
“Competing in speech and debate terrified me, but I knew it would stretch me. After 5 years of competition and many good friends later, I wholeheartedly say that God used BVRC to mold me into the person that I am today. Let Him do the same for you!”
“Of all the extra curricular activities I’ve done throughout high school, speech and debate has been the most prominent and rewarding. It has taught me very valuable lessons, not only about persuading and speaking with confidence, but also lessons about leadership.”
“Talking is hard… and I used to hate it. It was like some part of me wanted to enjoy it, but I just couldn’t. But God has used speech and debate to completely change the way I relate to people… both in front of audiences and with individuals. It’s by far one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”
