Would You Like to Be in an Apologetics Club?

Posted: May 24, 2011 by Amy Hall in Etcetera

A new organization called Ratio Christi has the goal of starting up apologetics clubs in 500 universities in the next five years, and the good news is, they might already have one on your campus (see the existing chapters, the recently added chapters, and the universities where chapters are forming).

If you don’t see your school there, why not start a chapter yourself? It turns out that most of the chapters are initiated by students, and you can find out how to start the process here. Ratio Christi will help you get started and connect you with a trained apologist in your area who can serve as your chapter director. After that, you’ll have a great forum to meet with like-minded Christians, learn more together, have discussions with atheists and other religious groups on campus, answer people’s questions, and draw more people into a deeper knowledge of, and relationship with, Christ.

Ratio Christi will also help your chapter host one or two large events or debates a year by connecting your group with speakers like William Lane Craig and Gary Habermas. This is a great way to get the people on your campus thinking about what is true.

We love meeting with you online, but why not take what you’re learning here out into the real world and talk to your classmates who are confused and lost, “having no hope and without God in the world”? This is an excellent opportunity.

    I’m thinking about getting one going here in our city. I used to hold free public lectures at the library on the evidence for Chrisitianity and there were times when the detractors were behaving so badly, it ruined it for everybody. I believe the university campus will be even worse. Any tips on how to keep these kinds of things to a minimum?

      You should contact them and see what they say. But I haven’t heard that this has been a problem on the campuses. You can also take a look at the student and chapter director testimonials. I do encourage you to start one in your city!

    Thanks for the mention guys! Equipping our students to know why they believe what they say they believe is simply not an option!
