  • More RC Chapter Directors interviewed on Streaming Radio programs

    In December 2018, we had two Chapter Directors interviewed on radio shows that reached across the internet. The RC chapter director at Ohio State University, Eric Chabot, was interviewed on "Connecting Faith" with Carmen LaBerge to discuss How to Talk to Your College Student who is Home for Christmas, and the most common objections to Jesus that they might now have. And Eric should know. The RC chapter at OSU is one of our most established chapters and at the largest U.S. university with over 60,000 students.

    And our chapter director at Glendale Community College in Arizona, Richard Klaus, talked with host Steve Keist on Omny FM's "Jesus Asks, Are You Listening?" about Ratio Christi's college ministry in general, gaining exposure to a new audience for us on a program out of Arizona. We are proud of our chapter directors who are willing to go on the air and explain why we do what we do.  

  • Ratio Christi Mentioned on Break Point

    Break Point is the long-running web blog and podcast site from The Colson Center for Christian Worldview, started by the late Charles Colson. In this short message, speaker John Stonestreet uncovers for Break Point audiences the odd path that Ratio Christi chapters must sometimes travel in order to become a "recognized campus club." Stonestreet speaks here of the University of Colorado's insistance that RC allow non-Christians to lead our Christian apologetics group in order to be able to get funds for events and recognition as a school organization! See our Press Release about the lawsuit our chapter has filed at the University. 

  • RC's California Regional Director on "Stand Up for the Truth" Re: Christian Students in California

    RC's Regional Director for California, Jane Pantig, was our interviewee for November 2018 on "Stand Up for the Truth" radio. She discussed with host Mike LeMay the crucial faith questions students are asking and the importance of giving them both apologetics & biblical answers, how people can learn to interpret the Bible, and the challenges of being a Christian student and witness on California's progressive college campuses. Here is this terrific podcast.

  • RC President interviewed on Popular Conservative Political "Eric Metaxas Show"

    Author and streaming radio host Eric Metaxas interviewed RC President Corey Miller on "The Eric Metaxas Show," for which this podcast became available October 23. Metaxas is the author of the New York Times #1 Bestseller, Bonhoefferwhich was named  “Book of the Year” by the ECPA as well as other awards. He is also a much sought-after interviewee himself as a watchman and guardian of traditional family values on a vast number of TV shows and in periodicals.

  • Former Atheist, Now RC Chapter Director at Rutgers, interviewed on "Stand Up for the Truth" Radio

    Vas Avramidis began life in a nominally Christian home, went to college and got convinced Christianity was fake, explored other faiths, became an atheist, and eventually came back to Christianity. Hear him tell about his journey, his discovery of apologetics, why he thinks it is needed, and why he joined Ratio Christi. This is October's interview on "Stand Up for the Truth" radio with an RC representative, which host Mike LeMay does each month. 

  • RC President, Legal Counsel interviewed about Chapter Settlement over Student "Free Speech" Zones

    On October 22, 2018, the Kennesaw State University chapter of Ratio Christi Campus Apologetics Alliance received a settlement to a court case whereby KSU agreed to eliminate special “speech zones” policies. On several occasions, KSU had relegated Ratio Christi’s pro-life displays to be presented in a “speech zone” that made up less than 0.08 percent of the 405-acre campus, stating the subject was “controversial,” and denying the use of other available space on campus. KSU monetarily settled by paing all court costs and damages, and students are now free to display anywhere on campus. Hear an interview done the very next day at A Clear Lens Apologetics with both Dr. Miller and attorney Barham regarding this case settlement and what it means for students' free speech.)

  • Ohio State Campus Newspaper highlights RC event with speaker J. Warner Wallace

    To kick off the fall 2018 semester, the RC chapter at Ohio State University hosted well-known apologist J. Warner Wallace to speak on the topic "The Moral Evidence for God." The campus event drew 340 people. Ohio State's The Lantern newspaper covered the presentation, detailing how Wallace, a former homicide detective and author of the Cold Case Christianity series of books, left atheism and accepted Christ after applying his skills to find out whether the gospel is true. The event, along with this newspaper coverage, could help spread the truth of the gospel message among students and staff.

  • RC Director tells of Post Modernism, Anti-Christian Bias at Colleges on "Connecting Faith" Radio

    RC's Regional Director for Tennessee and South Carolina, Anna Kitko, represented us for our latest quarterly interview on "Connecting Faith" with host Carmen LaBerge. Kitko shares news of what Christian students face when stepping onto most secular (and some Christian-based) college campuses - a very "evangelical" attempt by atheist professors to discredit parents and churches and draw young people away from Christ. LaBerge calls the information "scary" as she and Kitko share with listeners what parents and grandparents need to be aware of, and how Ratio Christi can help. "Connecting Faith" is a regular weekday show on the Faith Radio Network. LaBerge is also the author of the book, Speak the Truth: Putting God Back into Every Conversation (Salem Books, Sept. 2017), and mentions Ratio Christi again in her blog post "Colleges commence, open season on the Christian faith."

She discusses the preferred title "Jewish believer" for Jewish people who have accepted Jesus, how it happened for her, what drew her to apologetics, and why she believes women should have a more visible role in this art of explaining the reasons for their faith.

  • Raising Kids Christian and Helping Them Stay That Way on "Connecting Faith" Radio

    How do you keep kids from leaving the church and the Christian faith by the time they reach college? "Connecting Faith" with host Carmen LaBerge did this June 2018 interview with RC College Prep's Thomas Griffin. They discussed preparing teens with an apologetics background for entering college and also how to teach apologetics to younger kids. Listen to the interview for several references to elementary-level apologetics authors including Tom's own material for 5th through 8th graders (this is not official RC curriculum because we do not yet have an outreach below high school level, but we are proud of Tom for his endeavor into this area). We thank Carmen and the Faith Radio network for another interview with an RC rep.

  • RC's Historic Scrolls in Kentucky's Capitol, covered in News Video

    Ratio Christi's historic Old Testament scrolls and Torahs were on display at Kentucky's Capitol Building in Frankfort on April 4, 2018. We've discovered that their appearance was given advance coverage in a March 27 Lexington TV video broadcast. Over time, donations of centuries-old scrolls and artifacts have been donated to Ratio Christi for educational purposes. We now own 2 scrolls, 4 Torahs, and more items are available to us on loan by the Artifacts Foundation. Some of these pieces have survived major destructive events in world history, including the Holocaust. Our representatives travel the country visiting churches, schools, community centers - and yes, even capitol buildings.
