Inspiring and nurturing a thoughtful pursuit of Christ one student, one professor, one university at a time.
Centers for Christian Study are learning communities strategically located close to university campuses. Centers include undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff, and local men and women who want to engage the mainstream academy with Christian perspectives in scholarship, and do it in the context of intentional community.
Some participants are enrolled in a Center program; others are pursuing a degree from a local university; still others are involved as life-long learners. Some share life together in a residential community; many others are part of a Center’s larger relational network in a university town. Some are involved in local advisory leadership for a Center, and others are adult mentors and host families for students.
Center activities and events feature formal academic coursework, lectures, conferences, concerts, recitals, drama and other artistic performances, movies, retreats, discussion groups, mentoring, service, and the many dimensions of life-in-community.
