In a world where a thousand things vie for our attention at any given moment, it’s essential to identify what we believe is worth our time and work hard to defend that decision with time saved for those things.
You can often tell a person’s priorities by examining the way they spend their time.
We manage to carve out time for family, jobs, and learning, but if our lives are truly dedicated to glorifying the Lord in all that we do, we must take the time to equip ourselves for the study of his Holy Word.
It's a Life of Pursuing
As someone who grew up in a Christian household, I learned the correct answers to many biblical questions at a young age, but I lacked the tools to search for the answers I didn’t have.
Patrick Henry College refuses to allow questions to go unanswered. At PHC, students are not only encouraged to wrestle with the deep questions of their faith, they are given the tools they need to find answers.
A Strong Biblical Foundation
The Biblical Studies minor is an opportunity for Patrick Henry College students to pursue a fuller understanding of what it means to be a Christ follower.
Students that minor in biblical studies will likely see less of the sacred/secular distinctions in the church and culture, and learn how to be salt and light in their vocations. They are taught to lead as parents, citizens, and followers of Christ.
PHC believes in holistic education; an education that truly prepares students for the future by teaching them to think critically about the world around them. In order to live our lives well, we must recognize a deeper biblical purpose and pursue that (ref. Deut. 10, Matt. 22, Luke 10). We are called to love the Lord with all of our heart, mind, and strength. We all need foundations upon which to build up our faith.
Invest in the Pursuit
In pursuit of living out our faith and of striving to serve in our vocations to the best of our abilities, consider a college that will provide an unwavering Christian foundation to all aspects of life and learning, including biblical and theological instruction. Again, the things that we choose to invest our time in are the things that tend to shape our passions and desires. At PHC, you have the opportunity to grow spiritually, to open your eyes to the truths that surround you, and to open your ears to God’s calling for your life.
