Geoff Johns is the RC Chapter Director at University of Wisconsin Green Bay. He helps spread the Ratio Christi movement in Northeast Wisconsin both on college campuses and at local churches. He is excited to work with students to help them understand, defend, and live out a robust Christian worldview in the public square.
I came to Christ at a private school in third grade when my teacher explained to me the Gospel message and encouraged me to trust in Jesus as my savior. Through middle school and high school I began to question my faith while learning about world religions, alternative philosophies, and evolutionary theory. Certain questions lingered in my mind such as, “What if had been born in another religion?”, “How do I know that Christianity is actually true?”, and “Can my Christian beliefs be reconciled with modern science?”. During my junior year a friend of mine lent me a copy of “The Handbook of Christian Apologetics” by philosopher Peter Kreeft. I was amazed that there were actually good answers to the tough questions I was wrestling with! After this, I discovered the works of C.S. Lewis and Ravi Zacharias. God was slowly teaching me how to love Him with my mind as well as my heart.
Through the encouragement of my youth pastor I decided to attend Bible College in California after I graduated high school. This was a key time for me to focus on learning about and living out the biblical message while honing an academic approach to my faith. My apologetics and systematic theology classes gave a rich appreciation for the evidence and rationality resident within the Christian tradition. Since then I have worked in youth ministry, camping ministry, and college ministry and have found apologetics to be invaluable when communicating with Christian and non-Christian students. I am currently raising support to launch Ratio Christi in Northeast Wisconsin, and I am excited to see the gospel advanced through this important work.
