Thriving in College
Guest: Alex Chediak
Many kids today turn away from their faith once they encounter college. How can we give kids a solid Biblical foundation so they can thrive in the midst of this world's culture? Join us as we talk to Alex Chediak talking about how to launch students into Christian adulthood. If you are in college, headed to college or want to know how you can help your kids make a successful transition then you aren't going to want to miss this show.
Born and raised in Chicago, IL, Alex Chediak earned a B.S. Degree at Alfred University in Ceramic Engineering and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Material Science & Engineering from U.C. Berkeley. From 2005-2007 he was one of about twenty four apprentices at The Bethlehem Institute, a masters-level theological training program overseen by Pastors John Piper and Tom Steller. Alex is now an Associate Professor of Engineering and at California Baptist University.
As a professor, he wants to help students and young adults develop their God-given potential so that in all things Jesus Christ might be magnified in them. That passion gave rise to his most recent book, Thriving at College. Alex and his wife Marni have three children, Karis, Jonathan, and Abigail.
