Mission, Vision and Values
Our Mission: Reduce the number of young Christians abandoning their beliefs in college and disengaging from the church.
Our Vision: We envision a world where every college bound Christian leaves home equipped with “good reasons” for the hope they have in Jesus and connects with Christian community on campus.
Parents and Pastors Who Lead The Way. As a supportive para-church ministry, we supplement your critical work of teaching, shepherding, and discipling with specialized college preparation programs that are designed to compliment the good work you’re already doing.
Good Answers to Good Questions. In college, students are likely to encounter a multitude of objections to historic Christianity from professors, peers, and even their own inner skeptic. By highlighting the rational roots of Biblical Christianity, our college bound students are equipped to explain and articulate WHAT they believe and WHY they believe it.
Culture Makers Making Culture. All spheres of human activity rightly belong to God. This includes science, philosophy, psychology, history, sociology, economics, and a whole host of ideas and disciplines that are rarely discussed in Church youth groups. Our unique programs help young Christains to understand and value Christian contributions to culture and their roles as culture makers.
A Community of Teachers and Scholars. While our staff, board, and speakers all adhere to the essential doctrines of historic Christianity, we believe early exposure to a wide range of Christian thought helps students to work out their own Christian convictions. Additionally, students are better prepared for a university setting after being exposed to a wide range of answers to a wide range of questions while emphasizing sound Biblical hermeneutics, sound Biblical exegesis, and the centrality of Jesus to the Christian faith. Note: The word “university” is derived from the Latin universitas magistrorum et scholarium, which roughly means “community of teachers and scholars.”
