The Institute for Religious Research (IRR) is a nondenominational, evangelical Christian ministry of apologetics and discernment. It was founded by Roger Hansen, a Christian businessman who serves still today as Chairman of the Board of Directors. IRR, which was originally known as Gospel Truths Ministries, was established as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization in 1986 and officially changed its name in 1989. From that time until his passing in November 2007, Luke P. Wilson was IRR’s Executive Director. Throughout this entire period Luke worked alongside Joel Groat, who continues as IRR’s Coordinator of Spanish Language Ministries. They were joined in 2000 by Glenn Evans, a Research and Counseling Associate who oversees IRR’s Mormons in Transition (MIT) ministry. In September 2008, Rob Bowman, a veteran of nearly twenty-five years in apologetics ministry, joined IRR as its new Executive Director.
