Will the Faith of Your Kids Survive College?

As I shared in a previous post, I am passionate about preparing students for the challenges and opportunities facing them on campus. This past week I was honored to be on Breakpoint and Breakpoint this week talking about Welcome to College. Chuck Colson, the founder of Breakpoint, was one of my heroes and an example to all Christians everywhere. I felt a significant sense of responsibility to carry on his passion for worldview training in the kind words he used to endorse my book Think Christianly. John Stonestreet and Eric Metaxes are doing a phenomenal job picking up the torch of Breakpoint and I would highly encourage you to tune in daily and listen.

In the conversation I had on Breakpoint this week with John Stonestreet we talked about how to help students not only survive college but thrive there. We also talked about the crisis of knowledge that Christians are facing today.

I teach Bible to high school seniors. I think the biggest challenge for them is not the lack of arguments or the lack of knowledge that my students sadly have concerning God and the Bible it's the lack of a faith of their own. The kids who thrive in college are those who own their faith, those that are just talking the talk and living the way their parents have told them to are the ones who walk away. Worse yet are those who just talk the talk but do not walk away and then they train their children that it is okay to be that way. We need real committed Christians.

I agree owning their faith is a big part of the equation. Thanks for posting!
