I am full time campus apologist/missionary on two college campuses. One of them is at The Ohio State University and the other is at Columbus State Community College here in Columbus, Ohio. I am the director of two apologetic ministries on these campuses. Ohio State opened back up for the Fall term with some restrictions in place. Columbus State is all online.
People have asked me what it has been like to be be back on campus. Are students open to talking about the big questions? The answer is a huge yes! In our tabling on the campus for the month of September, we talked to nearly 170 students for one month and saw more people commit their lives to the Lord than any previous semester.
It has been evident to me and others that perhaps the state of our nation has created a void. People are looking for answers. We even had one student walk up to us and say ” I have been looking for someone to talk to about these issues.”
What is the lesson? With Covid and the racial and political divide, it seems God is using these issues to cause people to ask the big questions. We need to be ready to give a reason for the hope what is within us (1 Peter 3: 15-16).
