  • Determined Not to be Deterred

    West Virginia University student Luke Prudich couldn’t find anyone else interested in starting a Ratio Christi chapter on campus.

It is now well-established.

    Anderson presented Prudich with the Legatus Christi certificate for outstanding stud...   More

  • Ratio Christi in Capetown, South Africa

    Who would have thought just a few years ago, when Ratio Christi was first birthed at Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES) in Charlotte, North Carolina, that today we would be on mission as far away as Capetown, South Africa?

    Here is a report about the summer 2015 trip from Simon Brace, who has been the Director of Evangelism at SES, but will soon head back to South Africa, the home of his childhood, to fully represent Ratio Christi’s ministry in that country!

    Ratio Christi’s international outreach is exploding in the Philippines. We completed our second annual Philippines Apologetics Academy and Conference in Manila in June, 2015. During the 2014 conference, approximately a dozen people in Manila signed up after the conference to learn how to be RC chapter directors. That training took place, and some are now starting chapters. We also connected with pastors in many cities. This was part of our long-term goal for that nation.   More
