What Happens When Christian Kids Go to Secular Colleges?

January 23, 2017

Student carrying boxYour student is in the middle of making one of the most important decisions of his or her life – where to attend college. You may be weighing many issues: cost, location, academic programs. But perhaps the greatest factor you need to consider is this: How will this institution affect my student’s spiritual walk? 

Dr. Steve Henderson, founder and president of Christian Consulting for Colleges and Ministries, has done extensive research on what happens to Christian students when they attend secular universities. In an article published on the online Christian College Guide website, Henderson cautions parents about what students will face in a secular university classroom and presents his research findings about the impact on students' faith. Having faced this issue in his own family, he encourages parents to consider the true cost of having a student attend a secular school, and not just the price.

With daily chapel, a required Bible minor built into every academic program, biblical integration in all courses, and intentional discipleship opportunities, your student’s faith will be strengthened at Cedarville. We are committed to equipping students to use their vocation to impact the world for Christ, wherever He leads.

At Cedarville University, we are committed to the authority of Scripture. It is the foundation for everything we do here. We are also committed to equipping every student to understand the Gospel and to live and share it.

That's why we are excited to host "Finding Truth," an apologetics conference designed for high school and college-age students, as well as those who care and minister to them. We are also grateful to our sponsors for this event, NAMB and Crossings Ministries.

This dynamic one-day event will feature outstanding speakers and engaging, practical sessions to help students understand, defend, and share their faith.

Our speakers for this event will be Nancy Pearcey, best-selling author, popular conference speaker, and professor and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University, and Dan DeWitt, Director of the Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity and Associate Professor of Applied Theology and Apologetics at Cedarville. 

Encourage your student to consider this great opportunity to be challenged in their faith. Visit the Finding Truth conference website to learn more or to register.

Who is the #1 influencer of a college decision?

For Cedarville students, it's MOM!

We asked a few of our very important moms what they appreciate most about Cedarville and the impact this place has had on their son or daughter. I think you'll be encouraged by the answers they shared in a short video — including introductory comments from best-selling author, founder of Pure Freedom and Secret Keeper Girl, and Cedarville alumna Dannah Gresh.

Why are college students walking away from church? Why do so many of our brightest young people never return to the church or come back with battle scars after their college experience?

As a parent of a high school student, you may have these questions on your mind. Helping college students stay true to their faith is also on the heart of Thomas White, President of Cedarville University. 

In today's post, you'll be able to listen to Dr. White on video addressing these concerns and explaining what Cedarville University is doing about them.
