You spend all those younger years training up your children in the way they should go, tenderly instilling the Christian worldview in their hearts, and then when it comes time to send them off to college, you're confronted by the fact that their chances of falling away from the faith are high. During this interview, you'll hear from Jonathan Morrow, foudner of the blog Think Christianlyauthor of the book, "Welcome to College: The Christ-Follower's Guide to the Journey." You'll learn what you can do to prepare.
"There's no environment that's tougher on a kid's faith and on a kid's commitment to church than the college environment," says John Stonestreet. "One of my friends likes to put it this way: 'College is like four-year brain and heart surgery.'"
For John, this story is all too familiar, as he remembers having his faith in the miracles of Christ challenged as soon as he entered a supposedly Christian college. His biggesty mistake, he says, was not asking the right questions beforehand.
"If you're going to get surgery somewhere, what are you going to ask? 'What are they going to do to me?' You don't really care about how well the lawn in manicured, or whether they serve good jello in the cafeteria or whether they have a good football team." Yet these, John points out, are exactly the questions students and parents ask when searching for a college.
As Jonathan Morrow argues in his book, we need to be asking much tougher questions about college, specifically what the surgeons (our professors) will be attempting when the operation begins.
Join us for for this empowering interview as Jonathan Morrow shares what your student will need to choose the right peer groups, stand up for his or her beliefs under pressure, answer hostile professors and own own the faith which you have taught as his or her own.
