Who are we? 

Our goal is to be a parent-involved speech and debate club for Christian Homeschoolers between the ages of 12-18.  In an effort to grow the speech and debate community in Georgia and with a desire to invest, influence, and impact the next generation of Christian leaders Dynamis was started by Josh & Robin Axelberd in 2020. The Axelberds have been involved with speech and debate since 2013, having three sons who have competed.

Why "Dynamis"?

Dynamis is the Greek word meaning explosive or abundant power. The word is used in Acts 1:8 when Jesus tells his disciples, “You will receive power (dynamis) when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my the ends of the earth.” Our words have power. When we learn to speak boldly, we can change the world for Christ.

What are clubs?
  • Clubs are local organizations that exist to educate, train and equip students, ultimately to participate in tournaments.

  • Clubs are independent and unique in their approach; there is no set curriculum or meeting format.
