Will my child stay close to God during college?

It might be the heaviest question on a parent’s heart when sending a child to college.

It’s not an unfounded concern. The statistics are heavy. Most young adults between the ages of 18-22 stop attending church or drift away from their faith. Studies vary, but the percentage of college students who stop attending church regularly falls between 60-80%. Disconnected from God’s Word, these students slowly lose their faith.

Grace & Truth for Life

“I am most thankful for the guidance and strengthening of my faith while at Bethany. My classes held the standard of God’s truth in their content, the chapel and vespers services offered were priceless and helped me focus on the “One Thing Needful” then and still today…Bethany cares for each student’s faith life and their quality of life following their time at college.”

“Bethany provided me with the liberal arts education and the critical and analytic thinking skills required of a career as broad as the Army Infantry. The Christian education that I received has provided me with a firm moral base on which I can handle any situation.”
