Dear Friend of Ratio Christi,

Please Join Me In Giving Christian Students A Voice On Campus That Will Resonate Into Eternity.
Imagine with me, two futures. One where the voice of Truth and reason is forever snuffed out on the college campus. Those deaf to the intellectual, philosophical and scientific reasons for following Christ will create a culture that will be dark and devoid of transcendent hope.
Now imagine a future where the intellectual voice of Christ is heard on campus through the mouthpiece of articulate and persuasive Christian students trained to give a reason for the hope that is within them. The culture which results will resonate with the hope and glory of Christ and ring in transformation.
Which future do you want to see? Do nothing and you will get the first. Become a Ratio Christi Booster and together we can pave the way for the second.
Correcting our Vision: Changing How We See our College Students.
(This is the next part in my series "The Top 10 Ways to Spiritually Prepare Your College Freshman for Campus." This entry focuses on what the church can do from the home front while students are away at school.)
I’ll never forget the first time I put on a new pair of glasses. When I stepped out of the doctor’s office I could actually see the pinecones in the Longleaf pines way across the street. It's amazing what new lenses can do. What's more amazing is that I didn’t know I had a vision problem until it was corrected.
I propose the church needs a correction in how we view our college students.
A New Focus
Too often we have been nearsighted—“Let’s just get them through youth group, and they’ll be good to go. Job done. See you when you’re home on break.” But I believe we need to be more farsighted. It’s been said, and it sure seems to be true, that as the colleges go, so goes the nation.
What if when our college students go, we actually send them as missionaries? They are going into mostly hostile, unchurched territory rubbing shoulders with many unreached people groups. Sure sounds like a mission field to me.
