Welcome to the Ratio Christi club at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC! We hope that you enjoy our site! Please join us for this fall 2018 semester as we are going through a series of talks and discussions on the philosophy of religion. Over the course of the semester, we will examine topics such as God's Existence, Purpose of Life, Ethics and Morality, The Problem of Evil and more. We will look at these topics not only from a biblical perspective but also employ the tools of natural theology (philosophy, science, etc.) to examine these worldview issues. In addition to our regular leadership, we plan to have guest apologist speakers with us throughout the semester to cover certain topics. We meet in DiGiorgio Campus Center in Room 221 every Tuesday night at 8pm. We also hold an informal discussion group, called "Think Group", in the main lobby of DiGiorgio Campus Center on Thursdays at 11am. All are always welcome to join our meetings and events regardless of your faith or non-faith background as you will always find an open environment where skeptics of Christianity and Christians alike can ask tough questions about Christianity and expect to find solid answers.

Stay tuned to this website and our social media pages for information on our public events as well as we hold at least one each semester in one of the larger auditoriums on campus. In addition to our student ministry, we also hold bi-monthly meetings for Winthrop professors through our RC Prof outreach and apologetics alliance. For more information on any of our meetings or events or to let us know how we can be a resource to you, your church, your school, etc., contact Devin & Melissa Pellew, Chapter Directors, at melissapellew@ratiochristi.org or call us at 704-606-4428 or 704-449-0632. We look forward to serving you!

    By Devin Pellew, Co-Chapter Director

    Throughout the history of the church, there have always been vicious attacks on the existence of God and the Bible. Scripture commands believers to be prepared to give a defense.1 Peter 3:15 states: "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear". The Greek word for defense here is "apologia", which is where we get the te...   More
