Organizations Filed Purposes: THE MISSION OF UNIVERSITY CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES, INC. (CENTER FOR CHRISTIAN STUDY) IS TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES AND RESOURCES FOR CORPORATE AND INDIVIDUAL INVESTIGATION OF THE TRUTHS OF THE HISTORIC CHRISTIAN FAITH IN RESPONSE TO THE QUESTIONS RAISED BY CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY. WE WILL PROVIDE THESE OPPORTUNITIES AND RESOURCES FIRST TO THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA, SECONDLY TO THE CHARLOTTESVILLE COMMUNITY, AND THIRDLY TO THE BROADER REGION. THROUGH THIS MISSION, MEN AND WOMEN WILL BE TRANSFORMED BY THE TRUTH, WHICH WILL BE REFLECTED IN THEIR THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS, BOTH IN THEIR PRIVATE LIVES BEFORE GOD AND IN THEIR PUBLIC LIVES AS MEMBERS OF SOCIETY, THEIR FAMILY, AND THE CHURCH.

UNDERGRADUATE MINISTRIES AT THE CENTER FOR CHRISTIAN STUDY AIM TO EVANGELIZE AND DISCIPLE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA STUDENTS BY HELPING THEM APPLY THE CLAIMS OF THE BIBLE TO THE WHOLE OF LIFE. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED PRIMARILY THROUGH MEETING WITH STUDENTS ONE-ON-ONE, FACILITATING SMALL GROUPS AND LECTURE SERIES, ASSISTING OTHER CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AT THE UNIVERSITY, AND PROVIDING THE ELZINGA RESIDENTIAL SCHOLARS PROGRAM FOR MEN AND WOMEN WHO CHOOSE TO LIVE AND STUDY IN COMMUNITY WHILE ENROLLED AS UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS ARE AT THE CORE OF OUR MISSION AT THE CENTER FOR CHRISTIAN STUDY. WE BELIEVE THAT ALL CHRISTIANS SHOULD SEEK TO GROW IN THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF SCRIPTURE, CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE, AND CHURCH HISTORY. WE ALSO KNOW THAT IT IS CRUCIAL FOR BELIEVERS TO CONSIDER HOW OUR CULTURE INFLUENCES OUR THOUGHTS AND DESIRES IN LIGHT OF CHRISTIAN TRUTH. EDUCATION, PROPERLY DIRECTED, DOES NOT ONLY PROVIDE INFORMATION BUT FORMATION. IT HELPS US TO ENVISION OUR PLACE IN GOD'S REDEMPTIVE PLAN FOR THE WORLD, AND IT FORMS OUR CHARACTER, HABITS AND DESIRES SO THAT WE MIGHT LIVE OUT OUR CALLING IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE.
