Mission Statement:

The mission of Aspire Speech and Debate Club intends to provide home-educated students and parents growth in Godly character along with the skills to articulate and defend the truth of Biblical Christianity. Club and competition together offer an environment where students and parents learn critical thinking skills and competence in delivering a significant and purposeful message. With a teachable spirit and humility, students learn to live for God’s glory. Aspire Speech and Debate Club was started in 2023. We are affiliated with Stoa, a nationwide organization, that trains students to speak boldly and change the world for Christ.
