Christian Union Bible Courses Are a Virtual Training Ground at Princeton

Christian Union Nova, the student organization at Princeton University, was forced to get creative as it considered how to manage nearly twenty online Bible courses among only three ministry fellows this fall. Students wanted to stay in their regular Bible courses since they are places of growth, personal sharing, and deep spiritual friendship. In order to care for these students well, while also ensuring that they would receive high-quality instruction as they studied the Gospel of Mark, Christian Union Nova faculty created a new method of teaching.

CU Bible Courses for Female Athletes Thrive at Cornell

Athletes understand the concept of family; a group of people you might not have chosen becoming the ones with whom you share life. The team forms such a family where sacrifice and faith in one another drive these individuals towards a common goal. It’s no wonder that athletes share a particularly special bond when they come together around the Gospel. And the female athletes at Cornell have been doing just that.

Seeking a Christ-Awakening

Editor’s note: The following article by David Bryant is adapted from his essay in the 2004 updated edition of Jonathan Edwards’ influential book on prayer. It was marked by a thirty-six word title that began with three famous words: An Humble Attempt. The modern version’s title is “A Call to United, Extraordinary Prayer…An Humble Attempt.”

Christian Union New York

The challenges during this pandemic season have been significant — and at times even overwhelming — for healthcare providers. Christian Union invited three faithful doctors to share their experiences at a webinar on Christian Perspectives on Healthcare in a Pandemic on Thursday, February 9, 2021.  Dr. Christopher Manasseh, the Associate Chief Medical Officer of Inpatient Operations at Boston Medical Center and a Clinical Associate Professor of Family Medicine at the Boston University School of Medicine, shared about being a senior administrator and doctor in a major medical center. Dr. Vincent Naman, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and owner of a solo practice, Chattahoochee Plastic Surgery in Georgia, - faced different challenges as his practice was shut down for a period at the start of the pandemic. Dr. Kathryn Walters works as a frontline emergency medicine physician with U.S. Acute Care Solutions in Charlotte, North Carolina, fulfilling the role that most Americans envision healthcare workers to be doing during the pandemic.  The moderators and audience asked the three panelists questions about how their faith influences their practice. They spoke about praying with patients and turning to scripture. They shared powerful examples of miraculous outcomes and talked about challenges around misinformation— coming even from fellow Christians and how they deal with that. In the end, they shared powerfully about how in a culture that wants to claim that science is God, they value science but know that only our Almighty Creator is God. Christian Union is grateful for their service and witness and for the many thoughtful people who engaged in this important conversation.

Columbia Student Is a Leader with Christian Union, John Jay Society

In his Summa Theologica, Thomas Aquinas said, “There is no greater act of charity than to lead a neighbor to truth.” At Columbia University, Jonathan Tanaka ’23 is passionately seeking this greatest act of charity in a bold and wholehearted way. “I believe that since God is the perfect, supreme arbiter of truth—He is truth. It is not only a good thing to pursue Him by pursuing truth, but it is my duty to do so,” said Tanaka, who serves on the executive team for Christian Union’s Lumine ministry at Columbia.

Report Details ‘Pivotal Moment’ for Gen Z and Millennials

With its report, The Great Opportunity: The American Church in 2050, the Pinetops Foundation examines the fruitfulness, or lack thereof, when it comes to the engagement of today’s teens and young adults. According to its 2018 report, approximately one million young people are leaving the church each year—but a “great opportunity” exists if we can reverse the current trends assigned to Generation Z and younger Millennials.

Yale Students Find Ways to Share their Faith Despite COVID-19

“Why do Christians believe what they believe?” It’s a question that has intrigued our world for centuries. While cultural Christianity may have sufficed as a reason for some to associate with the Church in years past, in our increasingly secular age, Christians must think more critically about what they believe, and more importantly, why they believe it.
