Ratio Christi is pleased to announce the addition of two outstanding apologists and ministry friends to the network of RC Boosters. Ryan Huxley and Hillary Ferrer will be helping to promote the Ratio Christi mission and vision to churches and parents. In particular, they will be spearheading, along with Julie Loos, the Youth Exodus Project (Y.E.P.). This project is a collaborative effort of the several ministries to compile, analyze, and share all the research that has and is being done on the issue of our youth leaving the faith. The project will analyze the causes, the problem, and suggest solutions to turn the tide. Look for this team to make the project and its presentation available soon. For Ryan and Hillary's bios, see our Team page.
Starting today! The Marshall blog will be updated 3 times a week! You can read it here, on our blog site, www.ratiochristi.org/marshall/blog, our Facbook page, @RC_Marshall on twitter and @John and Sherri on twitter! We look forward to sharing both apologetic information, and well, my personal thoughts on related topics!
Please help cover the work we do at Ratio Christi in prayer. Pray for us intentionally and frequently. You can see updated prayer requests and ongoing requests on the Boosters Pray page. Better yet, sign up to be a prayer partner and ask others to join you.
Julie Loos serves as Ratio Christi's Director of RC Boosters, the community outreach and involvement arm of the ministry. She lives in Missouri and is now part of the Missouri Baptist Apologetics Network.
The Missouri Baptist Apologetics Network is a group of church leaders committed to the defense of the Christian faith and called to equip believers to more effectively share their faith.
Our vision is to equip every Missouri Baptist to defend the Christian faith with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15-16).
We are MBC-approved Christian apologists who equip others to defend the faith by speaking and providing resources that enable Missouri Baptists to become bolder and more effective in sharing Christ with others.

These network members are available for training events, conferences, and other speaking engagements.

Ratio Christi at Marshall University has a new club President. Jon Godsey, a sophomore, will be taking the reigns immediately. This was decided at our last club meeting of the semester. Jon has been with us for over a year, and, after spending the summer at home in Charlotte NC, plans to lead us into an exciting future. After two years of serving as our President, Isaac McKown is stepping down. Isaac Has been our President since the beginning. He recently completed his graduate studies in Education. Isaac will still be joining us at our meetings while he makes plans for where God leads him next.
