    Welcome to Ratio Christi at the University of Mississippi.  This chapter was officially formed in December of 2013.  We meet regularly to discuss important issues in Christian apologetics, to consider worldviews more carefully, and to learn to examine problematic language and assertions concerning ethics, religion, and classical Christianity.  Our mission is to equip students at the university with the tools they need to think more clearly about the truth of classical Christianity.

    Ratio Christi at UNC Charlotte meets weekly to encourage the Christian and challenge the skeptic. We are convinced that there are good reasons to believe the Christian message. Our goal is to have winsome conversations that commend Jesus Christ. We explore scientific, historical, and philosophical reasons for faith in Christ and respond to common, and sometimes uncommon, objections. Our format is usually very conversational. We encourage student leadership in our weekly meetings, and include lectures by students and guest speakers on a variety of topics. This is a safe place to engage over the deep questions of life. We are a Christian organization but all are welcome to come and enjoy the conversation and try out their objections in a friendly atmosphere. Faith and reason are indeed friends.

    Ratio Christi gained affiliation at UNCG in the fall of 2010. We focus on answering the hard questions of the Christian faith and engaging those of differing worldviews in a respectful manner with the truth of Christianity. We believe it's time to take the blindfold off of faith by equipping believers to know why they believe what they say they believe and challenging unbelievers to think well about reality and examine the available evidence. Our meetings are on Monday evenings from 7-8:30. Please check this page, and also like us on Facebook, to learn about meeting locations and upcoming events.

    The Ratio Christi chapter on Western Michigan University's campus is a denominationally diverse group that find comradery in that fact that our faith is backed by so much evidence. We meet on a weekly basis in order to discuss the Scientific, Historical, and Philosophical evidence for Christianity and the truth of the Bible, as well as answering the common objections to our faith and the challeneges we face in society. Our meetings begin with a discussion of a topic for the week, and the last half hour is usually reserved for open question time, where people can ask any question they want about the Bible, or God, or Christianity, etc.
