Ministry Description
Christian Study Centers were founded in part to model and engage in serious university study of all academic disciplines from an orthodox Christian perspective. Traditional campus ministries tend to focus on building a network of students to engage in regular religious worship and social activities for their membership. In contrast to ministry models built on student membership and regular worship, Study Centers lead students to take their studies seriously as preparation for their chosen vocation and to incorporate Christian scholarship within academic life. They typically offer libraries, guest lectures, classes, and seminars. Some offer an array of events open to university communities, including film showings and Bible studies. Others have residential programs for students. Courses offered at some centers are affiliated with religious colleges whose credits can transfer to the institutions their students attend.

A Christian Study Center is a place for university students and faculty to pursue ways to “think Christianly.” Christians have a unique perspective on their place in the world; a Christian Study Center is a place for followers of Christ or others with questions about faith to explore this perspective. Study Centers host lectures and discussion groups, conduct Bible studies, offer resources, and simply become a place in which students can study and reflect together.
