Why Choose a Christian College? 4 Great Reasons

The college search can be an overwhelming time for many young adults, especially if you’re a Christian. You’re choosing the place where you will spend the next several years and prepare to enter the workforce, so you want to choose wisely. 

Secular universities and state schools have a lot to offer, so why would you choose a Christian college? We’ve got 4 great reasons.

 

Why Choose a Christian College?

 

1. Choose a Christian College to Grow in Your Faith

 

For most high-school graduates, college is the first time they will be living on their own without family around. For this reason, it’s the perfect time to grow in your faith and get established with a strong biblical foundation.

If you choose a Christian college, you’ll be able to have like-minded peers and professors surrounding you who can sharpen you to be strong in the Lord. 

 

2. Form a Christian Community

 

Christians are not meant to be lone wolves. Romans 12:5 says, “So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” One great reason to choose a Christian college is to form a tight-knit community of other believers.

At Grace Christian University, student life is full of opportunities to grow in community. Alumni begin their vocations with friendships that last a lifetime, not just the college years.

 

3. Get a Quality Education

 

A Christian college is also a great choice if you want to get a quality education. At a Christian college, you will not only receive vocational training but also learn to interpret the world through a biblical lens. 

In a world that is often confusing and chaotic, it’s crucial for Christian students to be able to understand and defend their faith with confidence. 

 

4. Surround Yourself with People You Want to be Like

 

Finally, choose a Christian college to surround yourself with the kind of people you want to become like. As you’ve probably already noticed in your life, you become like the people you spend time with

If you are surrounded by people who don’t share your faith, values, or worldview, you may begin to prioritize those things less than you used to. On the other hand, if you are surrounded by strong believers who hold you accountable, you will be strengthened yourself. 

Grace has faculty and staff who are the kind of people you want to be like. Our caring professors desire to see each student grow in wisdom and skill during their time at Grace. Through our various student ministry opportunities, you can be built up by godly peers and challenged to be the best you can be.
