Ratio Christi is more than a movement to address the skepticism at university campuses. We believe we can contribute to creating one of the greatest evangelistic movements in this century. Our plan is to simply turn ordinary students into incredible evangelists, and to encourage them to teach other believers what they have learned. Students that commit to this effort may be awarded a Legatus Christi certificate by a Ratio Christi apologist. Legatus Christi is Latin for Ambassador of Christ. Try to imagine the exponential effect as students graduate and go on to teach what they have learned to other believers who can teach others also.
How many people will trust in Christ over the next 10 years due to our efforts? We have no idea. This plan does not focus on the number of people that make a commitment to trust in Christ. That is a hard number to count, and may not accurately reflect the impact of an organization. Instead our plan focuses on the number of people that become capable of having culturally relevant one-on-one conversations with people about the reasons to trust in Christ.
February 2nd will mark our 2 year anniversary. Our third year of operations (2013) will be a critical year. Why?

If God's blessing continues as it has been, we should have the financial stability this year to hire a few support staff that will give us the ability to keep up with the growth and support of this extremely fast growing movement.
