Is Q Ideas or Q Media connected to QAnon?
The “Q” in our name stands for questions, and it comes from the belief that an informed, winsome and theologically faithful approach starts with Christians who seek to understand, learn and grow. Unfortunately, the letter Q has recently become associated with a conspiracy theory and political movement in which we have no affiliation. We existed many years before QAnon and our work will continue well beyond it.
