I am not so sure about that. I could see him in some sort of church ministry where he is viewed as a intellectual powerhouse. The go-to guy if you are struggling. I bet that he is very effective at reinforcing pre-existing beliefs of believers. From my experience, christians have no idea what the Dunning-Kruger effect is and have no idea how to spot it. I think this is due to poor epistemology which they are also not aware of.

Maybe. But I think he's more likely to be only used in a marginal role because of his creepiness and utter lack of empathy towards other human beings.

RE: Q evangelism success
I noticed that once he runs out of arguments, he disappears for a few days or week. Like he is looking for answers because he hasnt some left. Like watching WLC on YT or asking his minister, whatever. I have a strong suspicion that he is a kind of puppet fed with a lot of stuff from outside his mind by other people.
In the thread with Mark fulton about Paul, he seems to be way more elaborate and eloquent, yet also disappears to come back with new stuff later. Nevertheless he seems to be way more versed in the bible and its content itself than with the rest of reality as it happens to be outside of his book. He clearly reads too much bible (and sometimes seeemingly not even the verses itself but rather interpretations) and way too less wordly stuff.

Although i verbally attack him (in order to "shake" him) i truly pity him, since he is wasting his life with bullshit and probably only on his deathbed (if ever) he will notice, and then its too late.

Ceterum censeo, religionem delendam esse

I think I would agree with Organic, he may be the go to guy in his social circles. I can imagine him bragging to his friends about how he out thinks atheists on a daily bases. The benefit we get here, is we can go back to see the contradictions he creates, the ignorance of his arguments, and the way he ignores the questions he doesn't know or want to think about.

Internet trolls usually don't have social circles. They are normally bored to death losers living in a basement under their parents' house. I should know, I was almost one of them. Fortunately although later than most, I got a job, a wife, and a house.

Q dose as well (or so he says) he's married with 2 kids.

I a different post might have also suggested his true identity.
