New Role with Ratio Christi Beginning This Summer

It's just been announced at I've accepted a position with Ratio Christi as National Field Director, beginning in mid-summer.

I have just a couple words to add here about that. I'm very grateful to God for building an organization and movement like Ratio Christi, and now for the opportunity to be a part of it

My wife, Sara, and I have been with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) since 1979, and we carry great memories of great experiences in ministry with great people in Cru. We have much, much to be thankful for there. I could go on at great length about that, but I'll save that for another time and place.

Over the past couple of years I've been watching the growth of Ratio Christi, from just a handful of campuses in 2011 to more than 100 today. I've had many encouraging conversations with RC's leaders Rick Schenker and Blake Anderson. God has used them and their nationwide team in a mighty way.

I think everyone involved in apologetics has been excited to see what God is doing through Ratio Christi. I'm humbled, pleased, and very grateful to be able to be a part of it. I look forward to what God will do.

  1. Tom, this sounds like a great move and opportunity for you–and Sara–to use your gifts and experience. Congratulations. I believe Dr. Bright would be thrilled with God raising up Ratio Christi and your move to minister there. I looked into RC because a couple years ago you wrote that it was the most exciting new ministry you’d seen come along in 30+ years of ministry. I’ve tried to get the word out, in my circle at least, about RC.

  2. Congratulations. RC looks like a very interesting and exciting ministry to be involved in.

  3. Welcome to Ratio Christi, Tom. I look forward to meeting you and learning all I can from you in the near future. May God bless your new post. Very sincerely, Scott Cherry, a new chapter director at UM Dearborn, MI.

  4. Congrats! I’m from Ireland so the work of RC isn’t directly applicable but I’m aware of them and they appear to doing some really excellent work. All the best, Tom.
