Value of a Christian Education
2/17/2014

This is a partial delegation of the students and staff from Harding- that came by the hospital to visit and pray with Jessica last night after worship.

As you probably already know, I am a strong supporter of Christian education. This is one of the reasons why.  I know there is no guarantee that students attending Christian colleges will come away stronger in their faith, but it sure is nice to know- that at such a defining time in your life, you can be surrounded by students and teachers of like faith. Katie was just telling me, the other day, that she had a meeting with one of her professors the other day- to share some of her struggles. The professor gave her some good advice, and had a prayer with her. She's definitely a believer in Christian education now. 

I am aware that you can go to a state school, and also have a faith growing education also. I have known many people who have gone to state schools, and having got involved in a strong campus ministry, came out stronger in their faith.

I do believe the campus ministry factor is huge. If I was a parent sending a child to a state school, that would be one of the big things I would seek. It may be better to forego scholarship funds for a better campus ministry.

Here is a link to seek state colleges with campus ministries associated with Churches of Christ, if that is your preference.

So much for college advice. Thanks for listening.
