Club 415 Speech & Debate

Club 415 Speech and Debate Team
“To Speak the Truth in Love”


Our Practical Purpose in forming Club 415 is to provide interested students practice and refining of skills in speech and debate tournament events.  Speech and Debate helps students develop their skills in written and oral communication, critical thinking, and persuasiveness.  Our ultimate goal is to equip our children to deliver the gospel message, to demonstrate Christ-like character, and to “speak the truth in love”.
