Ratio Christi at SHSU

What can a cup of coffee do?

Deep student discussions take place over coffee.  Would you figuratively buy a weekly cup of coffee (apx $10 / month) for the Ratio Christi student who is willing to discuss what Christ has to say about Origins, Meaning, Morality, and Destiny?  Your support will allow us to bring well-known speakers to campus and to sponsor student trips to Apologetic Conferences in the area.

Your first obligation is to your congregation, but we are happy to receive any small expenditures that you may be able to slip into your budget. 

Why we exist?

The "new atheists" such as Richard Dawkins, David Silverman, and others loudly say Christianity is irrational. Statistics from Barna and others show that 51% - 80% of professing born-again students lose their faith in college.  Charles F. Potter, says in his book Humanism: A New Religion, “Education is thus a most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism.  What can the theistic Sunday-schools, meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five day program of humanistic teaching?”

Frank Turek (www.crossexamined.org) observes, "Christian students are easily talked out of their faith, because they have never been TALKED INTO IT!".  They have never probed why they believe what they believe.

Enter Ratio Christi

Ratio Christi is Latin for the Reason of Christ - an organization dedicated to "presenting a reason for our faith in Christ with gentleness and respect". (1 Pet 3:15)

Ratio Christi at SHSU hosts weekly on-campus discussions presenting and defending the Christian answers to life's biggest questions.  We also work with the national organization to bring internationally-known speakers to campus to give Q&A sessions, debates, and talks.  This is the largest expense for our group.

Your annual, monthly, or one-time donations are crucial to bringing the most articulate and well-prepared defenders of the Christian faith to Huntsville, Texas.  A portion of your donation (14%) will go to the national infrastructure (staff, web hosting, accounting, etc), and the rest will be held in an account for the SHSU chapter's use.  This means that you will not receive separate requests from the national organization.
