Christian Colleges and Universities in Chicago
Yesterday, we engaged with leaders and students from Wheaton and Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL near Chicago. Campuses that are vibrant with ministry to students and prayer.
As we set up at Trinity in Deerfield, we were greeted by President Dockery's assistant Jean, who welcomed us, and rallied the senior leadership to the bus!
It was very encouraging to hear their hearts, especially for the students, and their efforts to raise up Godly leaders. One thing that we heard on both campuses, was that the biblical knowledge level of students coming into Christian colleges and universities has declined sharply in the last 20 years. Because of that, the students have less of a biblical framework to work with when making life choices and decisions.
May God strengthen our families and churches to train up our children in the Word of God, so that when they reach college age, they are better prepared to engage a world that so desperately needs a Savior.
