Ep. 47 - Redeemer University - Dr. David Zietsma
We had the privilege of sitting down with Dr. David Zietsma, the President of Redeemer University, located in Hamilton, ON. We found this to be an encouraging discussion on the topic of Reformed Education at all levels and how that plays out in the lives of believers. We chat about the history of Redeemer, the idea of missional drift, how Redeemer is fighting that and how they are dealing with secular ideologies and teachings. We also cover why post-secondary Christian education is important and why it possibly should be a consideration for every prospective student. We hope you enjoy listening in to this conversation. Please share it with any students, parents or individuals that might benefit from it and be sure to let us know what you think!
