Colleges and Universities and Resources

Belhaven University: Out of Jackson, MS and with campuses in Chattanooga and Orlando, this historic Presbyterian school is increasingly important in the education and preparation of the next generation of leaders, with a curriculum grounded a Biblical and Reformed world view

Colorado Christian University

Covenant College: The denominational college of the Presbyterian Church in America, Covenant College is a leader in preparing young men and women for service to God and man in the Kuyperian tradition of faith and life

Grove City College: One of the greatest colleges in America according to ISI Publications, Princeton Review, US News and World Report, and most importantly, according to satisfied, evangelical parents and students. With impressive Gothic edifices arranged and reflecting the conservative community it houses, and situated in the charming, rolling fields of Western Pennsylvania, this highly-ranked Presbyterian college combines a strong Biblical worldview, commendable Western Civilization core course requirements, a spirit (and institutional commitment) of independency from government influence, a Calvinistic, conservative free-market ethos, with a premier faculty contributing to the well-deserved acclaim it is earning, this college is recommended as a first-class faith-formation quadrivium  that will prepare students for greater service pro Deo et Patria

Mid America Nazarene University – This is my alma mater. I owe them a lot. Sometimes my religion professor even corrected my papers to make them more consistently Calvinistic, which he knew I was. He later became the president of the college, but not because of that!

Wheaton College: Let by newly appointed president, Dr. Phil Ryken, Wheaton marches forward with solid academics and a growing treasury of resources for cultivating the Christian mind.

Pepperdine University: If you have never stood on top of the mountain where this great Christian university sits and looked down on Malibu, you should.

Providence Christian College, Pasadena – Dr. Derek Halvorson is president and a former parishioner of mine. That fact along with having baptized one of his children makes me very supportive of him and Wendy and that school’s mission in California.

For a listing of major colleges and universities with excellent commentary on departments and professors and curricula, refer to Choosing the Right College by ISI Publications. “By far the best college guide in America” – Thomas Sowell. Also go to their website, Choosing the Right College,  for further research.

    Dear in Christ,
    I greet you in the most highly exalted name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God has privileged me to send this e-mail for your kind co-operation for the extension of the kingdom of God. If God inspires you please have your involvement in the way God enables you and strengthens your hand. Years are passing very quickly. We know that our dear Lord’s coming is very imminent. We are seeing the signs of His advent. But still there is still a lot of Gospel work to do. A number of precious souls are perishing before our eyes with out knowing Jesus. Our ambition is to reach every nook and comer and promote the Gospel to every perishing soul. In this regard I request you to have your involvement in the way that our Lord inspires you and enables you.

    You know that India is a country of idolatry and superstitions. Indians worship more than 35 million gods and goddesses. Out of one billion Indians only 2.4% are Christians. There have been endeavors to root our Christianity from India. We sense that in the coming days the doors for Gospel work in India will be closed Christianity will not be allowed. Before that happens we wish to do as much Gospel work as we can and save as many perishing souls as we can. In this regard I request you very humbly to have your partnership in the Gospel work in India. If it is possible for you please visit India to share the Gospel with our people, community activities and encourage missionaries to visit India in teams to have a thunder bolt on the darkness of the enemy and lead many in the light of salvation. Your regular prayers are more important.

    Jesus said to Peter in John 21:15-17 “ Feed my Lambs”. We believe that it is the will of our Heavenly Father to feed His Lambs. The Organization deals with organizes, help the aged and the widows, health care etc., please encourage me with your kindest reply for which God will surely reward you. I await your kind reply prayerfully and hopefully.
    Thanking you,
    yours Brother in the wonderful love,
    Sukumar .S,
    INDIA.
