Academia & Faith articles

Parents, we all want our children to succeed in school. We do, too!! Some of the questions we, as a youth ministry, and these articles ask are these:

  1. What is the cost we are willing to pay for our students to go into the top schools and in the top programs?
  2. Are we willing to have our students leave the church and their faith for the sake of a 5.0 GPA, top schools, and top programs?
  3. Are we willing to risk anxiety/depression/suicide for academics?
  4. What are we teaching our students to put their life and their hope in – academia or God?
  5. Etc.
