Christian Colleges Integrate Faith and Learning

Reasons to attend a Christian college

As you walk into classrooms at Christian colleges across the country, you’ll find professors praying before class and openly talking about their faith in front of their students. Showing their students that they truly care, professors integrate their faith into the classroom in a way that might not be seen at other institutions. Professors realize that they were called into their profession by God.

Whether it’s discussing the creation of the world in science class or a Psychology professor talking about implementing faith in the workplace, Christian colleges give students the opportunity to be taught and mentored by men and women of faith in their desired major. In a world where the Christian worldview and perspective are becoming less and less popular, it is more vital than ever that young men and women of Christ who want a Christian college education are able to do so in a place that is a good fit for them. While studying at a Christian college, students can ask themselves “Who am I?", “Why am I here?”, and “What does God want me to do with the rest of my life?" Thankfully, all of these questions can be answered during the college years. Students will have professors that challenge them to find out what they are passionate about and then look to see how they can take that passion and turn it into a vocation.

There is no greater feeling than finally realizing what God has called you to do. After prayer, conversations, and sitting under some of the brightest minds in their field, students at Christian colleges are able to fully realize what God has in store for them. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord…” God’s word tells His people that he has a plan for them all. By seeking Him in a Christian environment where faith-based thought is encouraged, students can find their passion and their calling.

So, while looking at Christian colleges and universities during the selection process, take a visit to campus! Look around at the other students and see how they are growing in their faith. Sit in on a class and see how professors are finding new and innovative ways to integrate their faith in the classroom. This, coupled with prayer and guidance, will allow for you to make the best choice possible for your college home – the place where you will be influenced by men and women of faith – friends, staff members, and faculty, who want to show your life through a Christian worldview.
