Growing in a Local Church

April 3, 2017


Cedarville University is privileged to care for the growth of some of the best university-aged students on our planet — including your son or daughter. We take this charge very seriously.

One of the elements in the spiritual growth dynamic here at Cedarville is seeing to it, as best we are able, that each student connects with a local church. The years of their academic training could leave them separated from any type of effective fellowship with the body of Christ, except for what takes place within the boundaries of our campus. Chapel is exciting and distinctive to a Cedarville education, but it does not take the place of the local church.

We are blessed to have many great churches in the greater Miami Valley region. The top 10 churches (based on number of Cedarville students who attend) are:

We are blessed with many more churches as well. We will continue to impress the importance of the local church upon our students, with the goal of seeing them grow spiritually while they attend Cedarville and then watching them naturally step right into a solid local church wherever they land in the years ahead. To God be the glory!

#CUGO - A Return to Her Birthplace Ignited Passion and Purpose

March 31, 2017

CUGOAs part of their four years at Cedarville, we encourage all students to take at least one domestic or international missions trip through our Global Outreach (CUGO) office. This is a core element of a Cedarville education.

For one senior pharmacy student, her missions trip to Beijing, China, had a uniquely personal element. Her story of adoption and redemption is a moving reminder of how God connects Cedarville to the heart of His purposes.

Read today's post to watch Hannah's story, and be encouraged that these same life-transforming experiences will be available to your student at Cedarville University.

The Christian College Difference

March 29, 2017

studentsAs you work through the college decision process, you may be considering both Christian and secular universities. A recent article in the online Christian College Guide — The Christian College Difference — provides some key considerations to think through when making your decision.

As you consider Cedarville University, you’ll discover that we are not “Christian” in name only. From vibrant daily chapels, Christian professors who affirm the doctrinal statement annually, biblical integration in every course, a Bible minor built into all undergraduate programs, and a bold Gospel focus in everything we do, you’ll see that we stand unashamedly for the Word of God and Testimony of Jesus Christ.

Cedarville's distinctly Christian education will transform your student's life for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement.

P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville, submit your reservation deposit to secure their spot in the incoming fall class. Students select their residence hall and register for classes in deposit-date order, so submit your deposit soon! We can't wait to welcome you and your student to campus in August!

Cedarville Magazine Provides Helpful Creation Resources

March 27, 2017

Cedarville Magazine spring 2017

It’s the foundation for everything we stand for at Cedarville University: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth" (Gen. 1:1 ESV). We unashamedly adhere to a biblical, literal six-day view of creation. It’s foundational to every course, in every program. Cedarville is one of just a few Christian colleges that takes such a stand.

We’ve dedicated the latest edition of Cedarville Magazine to this important issue, and we’d like to share it with you. You’ll hear from Ken Ham, President and CEO of Answers in Genesis, on why believing in a literal six-day creation account is critical in Christian higher education. You’ll hear from our President, Thomas White, as he shares why it’s important theologically for us to believe in an actual Adam and Eve. You’ll hear from a Cedarville alumna working in the field, who explains how genetic mutations, often thought to prove evolution, really support the biblical account of creation. And you’ll hear from three of our professors, each who weighs in on his area of specialty.

As you read the magazine online, we hope you will see that Scripture is — and always has been — the core of everything we do, and be encouraged that it will be the core of your student’s Cedarville education as well.

P.S. You can access past issues of the Magazine in our digital archive. Recent themes include "Think Grad School, Think Cedarville," "We Believe," "In the Public Eye," and "1,000 Days."
