Here for a blast from the past: Drake at your service!
I’ve been gone from the blog this year. But I wanted to return for one quick post.
This is my Mississippi College story.
As a high schooler, I loved MC. It’s where I had gone to church camp, met new friends, and grown in my relationship with Christ.
And I wanted to go there for college.
But, due to my strong conscience, I had a problem: Wouldn't it be better for me to attend large secular school in order to reach others for Christ?
Sure, MC had (and still has) people who are not Christians. But at a big school…they’re everywhere.
So what was I to do?
There wasn’t a defining moment in my journey to a college home. There was much prayer on my part.
However, when the time came for an answer, I decided to go with MC.
And looking back, I am glad I did.
The Christian College Myth
Maybe you’re like me and have a strong conscience. You almost feel guilty for going to a school full of strong believers in Christ.
Here’s what I’ve come to realize. I’ve matured (understatement) since coming to college thanks to the strong brothers and sisters in Christ I am surrounded by on a daily basis.
Would that have happened at a big school? Probably not to this extent. Christ has formed me into His image. MC has given me a place to discover who I was made to be in a relatively safe environment.
Sure, it’s not necessarily impressive. Some of your friends (even Christian friends) may even ridicule you for going to a “Christian school.”
But do it. There’s so much room for you to grow here, so much of yourself to find.
So find who you are. I found who I am.
