Probe's History

Probe Ministries was founded in 1973 by its current president, James F. Williams Jr., who sought to form a ministry that would bridge the frontier between the agonizing questions man asks and the profound answers the Gospel offers. Beginning with the vision and no staff, Probe has grown today to form a working unit of 15 scholars and 10 support staff, along with the service of numerous volunteers. As the organization has served Christ faithfully for 25 years, Probe now stands ready to dramatically expand its ministry for Christ the next 25 years.
