“Win the person…not the argument.” ~ Jordan Slusher

Legatus Christi

"Legatus Christi" means Ambassador for Christ. We give the Legatus Christi Certificate to students who have proven themselves to be outstanding in the area of understanding and utilizing the apologetics they have learned, both on and away from campus.
