Start with CollegePlus, Graduate from Liberty University

“I like the idea of CollegePlus, but I really want to graduate from a Christian university.”

Has that thought ever crossed your mind or your lips? I’ve heard it from numerous friends and acquaintances. And I totally understand. A good portion of my friends from high school all went to a prestigious Christian university and I would have loved to go there too. However, the price tag put that option beyond my reach. And that is the case with a lot of people I talk to.

Christian colleges and universities are just so expensive.

Yes, you can work hard for scholarships and financial aid and maybe get quite a bit, but at the end of the day, chances are you’re still going to be strapped with a lot of college debt going that route.

You may or may not know where God will direct you after graduating college, but you would probably prefer to not take college debt with you. Especially if you want to go into ministry or to get married and have a family. How about carrying a lot of college debt onto the mission field? Or into marriage? Or into a pastorate?

Right. Me neither.

A Christian education that reinforces and encourages the values and standards your parents have worked your entire life to instill in you would be great, especially if you go into a ministry of some kind, but the idea of all that debt can make the decision very difficult.
