Would you consider a Christian college to continue your educational growth and life preparation? Would you consider letting the Lord use your college years to focus your attention not only on learning but also on serving?
Although I do not believe the Lord's plan is to have
every Christian student at a Christian college, I do think you should
reflect on whether the Lord would have you at one. –Mr. Taylor
