What is a Christian Study Center?
The Christian Study Center phenomenon is being recognized more and more as an important piece of the puzzle of higher education in America. But what exactly is a Christian Study Center? By looking at four different kinds of CSC’s operative in America today, and then distilling three essential traits of those Centers whose work is specifically aimed at benefiting universities and colleges, Dr. Drew Trotter, Executive Director of the Consortium of Christian Study Centers, will open a window onto the nature and work of this fascinating movement.
Dr. Drew Trotter is the Executive Director of the Consortium of Christian Study Centers. He was previously Executive Director and President of the Center for Christian Study in Charlottesville, VA. Drew has written on film and popular culture for over thirty years in such publications as Books & Culture,Christianity Today and Critique, and in the field of Biblical studies published Interpreting the Epistle to the Hebrews (Baker, 1997).
The Consortium of Christian Study Centers (CCSC) is a network of Chrsitian Study Centers: spaces providing a place for individuals associated with a university—students, staff, or faculty—to pursue ways of “thinking Christianly.” A Christian Study Center is a place for followers of Christ—or others with questions about faith—to explore, grow, and deepen their understanding of the Christian perspective.
The CCSC sponsors an annual scholarship for Regent College Summer Programs.
