Who We Are
The mission of the Richmond Study Center is to bring gospel transformation to individuals and communities at the University of Richmond and throughout the surrounding Greater Richmond area by fostering serious consideration and discussion of a biblical worldview and its bearing on every area of life and culture.
What We Emphasize
Our emphases are worldview, apologetics, culture, theology. These flow out of our mission statement, as we seek to foster serious consideration and discussion of both the content (theology) and veracity (apologetics) of a biblical worldview and its bearing on every area of our lives (worldview) and the world we live in (culture).
We seek to be a relational resource for the Greater Richmond community, especially its churches and college communities, with a special focus on interested students at the University of Richmond.
(It should be noted that, while the Richmond Study Center seeks to build relationships with interested students and faculty within the UR community, the Richmond Center for Christian Study is not established as a ministry on the University of Richmond campus, nor is there a formal relationship between the Richmond Center for Christian Study and the University of Richmond.)
The Richmond Study Center will carry out its mission in a variety of ways, including the following:
Forming relationships with university communities, churches, students and others, through which a Christian worldview can be brought to bear in their lives and communities.
Bringing to the universities and the churches a variety of speakers to present how the Christian worldview bears on a particular issue or on the speaker’s field of expertise. These speakers would include widely-known speakers, university professors and study center staff.
Providing hospitality events, such as Bible studies and Movie & Discussion Nights, where students can come and consider how a biblical worldview bears on their lives and the culture we live in.
Establishing a resource center next to the University of Richmond for interested members of the university community and the greater Richmond community as a whole, as well as satellite resource centers on or near other campuses and in other locations in the community in the form of cafés.
Offering courses and internships through which students and those in the churches and the greater Richmond community can grow in knowledge and be challenged in life.
