"These campus ministries serve to reach a people group that is unique in its potential influence, its cynicism toward Christianity and its representation of what the future will look like."
 

AGTS has had 35 graduating classes. Those degree recipients number over 3,200 and serve in every state and 125 countries. Their ministries represent broad and vibrant expressions of Spirit-empowered service. This issue of Rapport tells stories of singular ministries on college and university campuses across our nation. These campus ministries serve to reach a people group that is unique in its potential influence, its cynicism toward Christianity and its representation of what the future will look like. I attended the University of Illinois during the turbulent 1960s. Because of Chi Alpha, the AG’s campus ministry program, and a church planted to reach university students, my life was forever influenced.

Dick and Ruth Foth were those leaders called to our university to clearly present the claims of Christ and live among us. Forty years later, God is asking graduates of AGTS to take the gospel to the colleges and universities of our nation. While the challenges are huge, the results are stunning. I am forever grateful to Dick and Ruth Foth. But I am particularly grateful for AGTS alumni who are taking the claims of Christ to centers of global influence represented in the universities of the nations.

President Byron D. Klaus
