How about getting "Refired" for Christ?
Did you imagine that your retirement years would be spent in a culture like we have today? Are you looking for a way to make a difference and leave a powerful legacy to the next generation?
Ratio Christi values the wisdom and expertise of people with your life experience. We don’t think you are done with your work for the King. You are invited to actively participate in a movement that is transforming our colleges and culture by re-awakening high school and college students to the truth of Christianity, the power of the Gospel, and the fervor of evangelism.
Ratio Christi (Latin for the “reason of Christ”) is a global movement preparing students and faculty with the evidence for their faith in order to stand for the truth of Christ. We are currently serving at over 170 universities and high schools around the world. But the laborers are few. There are many needs in this rapidly growing organization. We believe that partnering with retirees is a natural fit. We need your wisdom and expertise, and we hope you can be energized by assisting young people in a vibrant ministry.
Are you sick of seeing the decay in culture? Do you hate seeing young people leave the Church?

I've been aware of the lack of free speech for Christian students since at least 2005, and it's only gotten worse since then. The atheist mindset at the university level has also caused two students, children of personal friends, to walk away from Christianity within their first semester at college.
