The Founding Location of Ratio Christi. The first apologetics club was formed at ASU and it continues to this day. Ken Grano is the current campus director. RC provides a safe and charitable venue for atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and adherents to any religion to investigate the claims of Christianity, discuss religious beliefs, and seek truth without fearing reprisal. While this is a distinctly Christian organization, any student is able to become a member and learn, debate, and explore the connection of faith and reason.
Ratio Christi at Cal State Fullerton is in the beginning stages of development. Once established. Ratio Christi will provide a safe environment for students of all backgrounds to explore the Christian Worldview. It is the goal of this chapter to be a hub of resources and information for anyone who are truth seekers. During the weekly or biweekly meetings we will analyze information provided by philosophy, history, science, or religion and discuses how it impacts the individual and society.
Ratio Christi Canada seeks to encourage and strengthen the faith of Christian students at secular and liberal institutions across Canada, while also sharing Christ's message and love to those that have yet to receive it, through the use of intellectual investigation and apologetics. Ratio Christi believes that Canadian Christians have failed to address the pressing questions of worldview, science, philosophy, history, etc. Consequently, the Secular Humanist worldview has overtaken the university and the minds of students. By situating apologetic clubs at universities across the nation, we hope to take part in the battle for the mind and begin to reverse the Humanist trend of thought by providing and equipping students with the answers, or means of getting the answers, to the pressing questions of life.
Ratio Christi comes to Christopher Newport University amid an already thriving Christian movement on campus. Rather than encroach on the territory of other campus ministries, however, Ratio Christi CNU has developed a strong relationship with other Christian groups on campus such as InterVarsity, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Baptist Campus Ministries, providing a unique service that has been previously absent at CNU. The arrival of Ratio Christi at CNU has brought an infusion of rational thinking to the Christian community on campus and has sparked important dialogue between believing, skeptical, and seeking members of our student body. We are proud of the relationships we have forged with several skilled members of our faculty and we plan to continue to bring a strong defense of the Christian faith to our university through a variety of mediums.
Ratio Christi at Clemson University is a new and growing part of campus that seeks to encourage the use of apologetics on campus. This organization strives to educate Christians and non-believers alike by hosting weekly meetings Monday afternoon in Hardin Hall that stimulate discussion on the difficult questions about Christianity, and by reaching out to the varied discipleship groups on campus. Our inaugural year was 2012-13 and we are continuing to grow and seeking ways to enhance our ability to give an effective defense of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Already on a Christian Campus, this chapter at Concordia University Texas (CTX) provides an outlet for Christian and non-Christian students to find out more about the Christian faith. We look at tough questions people have about the Christian faith, watch debates and movies and talk about how they relate to the Christian faith, and show our faith to others through our actions and deeds. Meetings are held weekly to discuss topics, watch debates and/or movies, and possible activities that could be done as a group. Everyone is welcome to come and participate.
Blind faith is lame… so here at Ratio Christi we focus on discussing the tough questions you may be asking concerning Christianity. It's time to take off the blindfold and explore the relevancy of Christian truth claims for the academy, discuss other belief systems, and seek truth in a non-threatening atmosphere. Come to investigate and discuss the rationality of a Christian worldview.

Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina is our newest chapter to receive official status from the host university. The Chapter Director is Chris Van Allsburg. Ratio Christi, a Christian apologetics ministry at Lenoir-Rhyne, has as its primary goal to offer Christian students a chance to learn how to think through intellectual issues that challenge the classic, orthodox, Christian message (like that found in The Apostle's Creed). Students thinking through these issues are confronted with such questions as rationality and the existence of God, the exclusivity of the gospel, the problem of evil, the authority of Scripture, human sexuality, faith and works, and the nature of faith (is it blind, absent of knowledge, or is it evidential?). We have hosted speakers on a whole range of topics from abortion, atheism, postmodernism & free speech, women's rights, violence in the OT, and archaeology and the OT.
Welcome to the home page of the Marshall University Thundering Herd Ratio Christi organization! WE ARE more than just a campus club. WE ARE starting a movement! Our movement began late in the Spring semester of this year. In such a short time we have received RSO, recognized student organization, status, had multiple meetings, and good student interest for a new organization on campus. Our goal is to support other campus Christian ministries, and begin an apologetic movement with students that reaches Marshall, to the local community, and beyond! WE ARE currently planning events for the Fall semester, to include a well known Apologist, either debating or presenting on campus, and possibly local churches! Please contact us to be a part of this exciting movement and vital ministry, to provide students and others, with the answers they need...1 Peter 3:15.
Ratio Christi Potchefstroom was started in 2009 by a group of guys appropriately enough living together in Veritas Men's Residence. In the same year they introduced the campus to apologetics by organizing a team of apologists from Southern Evangelical Seminary to lecture all over campus, most notably Dr. Richard Howe. In 2010 they had RZIM speaker John Njoroge training students and in 2010 and 2011 Dr. Michael Licona was their guest, lecturing at various venues across campus and debating Muslim Apologist Yusuf Ismail. Dr. Licona's popularity became evident when the theological faculty offered him the position of external research collaborator, which he accepted. They host regular events with local apologists and have monthly meetings. They currently operate under the leadership of Johannes Stoker and Danie Malan and any contact details and event information can be attained through their Facebook group Ratio Christi - PUK
At a Campus Crusade for Christ retreat in spring of 2009, a group of Ohio University students decided to form a community to respond to intellectual attacks on the Christian faith. The resulting group, Christian Engineers and Scientists, discusses topics related to apologetics at weekly meetings. Past studies have covered the material presented in The Case for Faith, The Truth Project, The Case for a Creator, On Guard, and Expelled. In fall of 2009, Christian Engineers and Scientists hosted a guest lecture by David Berlinski, world-renowned mathematician, philosopher, and skeptic; more than 200 people attended. The leaders of CES joined forces with Ratio Christi in fall of 2010, hoping to gain additional assistance in carrying out our vision of teaching Christians how to defend the faith.
Ratio Christi at Palomar College has as its faculty advisor Gary Zacharias, an English professor who has been involved with many apologetics programs. In addition, Steve Bruecker, a trained apologist and highly regarded speaker with an M.A. in apologetics from Biola University, will provide specific support. We want to encourage Christians in their faith and challenge skeptics to reconsider their beliefs by holding meetings on campus and in homes. Also, we want to team up with other Christian groups to provide campus-wide events that show the reasonableness of Christian thought. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please contact Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
