I have watched Theological Horizons from their beginning, as they have made a great impact on the lives of countless people, especially students. I am personally helped by the links in their web sites sending me to stimulating documents and intellectual discourse. Their personal face to face interaction with students on a daily basis is a unique ministry in that it is an "inside the academic community" ministry, not one come from the outside. Having a tenured professor as co-director, and having a home virtually on campus as the venue for ministry, are two of the many factors making Theological Horizons unique among campus ministries.

meets a significant need in the world of academia by encouraging students to know what they believe and why they believe, making a faith based life credible, supporting excellence in faith based scholarship, and speaking to the academic world from the academic world. Theological Horizons strives to take the life of faith into the real world where people hurt, doubt, struggle, and wonder if the Christian faith makes sense. The many university students who are now out in the world making a difference for the common good is one of the manifestations of Theological Horizons contributions made in the interest of faith and life.
