They are an overly conservative school, so dancing of any form is INCREDIBLY hard for the administration to accept (including line dancing). As a school club, we want to have a fund raising dance so we can earn more money, but this event would not be complete without the main attraction: dancing. The students in our school are incredibly conservative as well–the most inappropriate dancing that involves contact would be ballroom dancing. We hope they would allow us to have a DJ and play modern music to dance to though. Any arguments to convince them to allow us to dance? It would be great if I can get some bible references; just plain logic is fine too.

Hi, I am a student at a small Christian based martial arts school. We are located in a small town in SC, USA. The economy has hit our state and our area hard. We have lost students as a result and I fear for our school’s future. I can’t lose my school. The area residents are mostly low income families and jobs are scarce. Most have to go to neighboring counties just to find work, if they can find work at all. We already have the best rates in our county and our neighboring county, but for many people, the drive out to our location will not work for them. We pride ourselves on serving our town and helping to re-develop it. We have been brainstorming and hitting up local events to put out the word for new students and we have been searching the web for ideas. Does anyone out there have any creative and excellent ideas? Thanks.
the negative answers have been reported. we do not use Christ’s name to try to make a buck, we are church based and we teach God’s word to our students, we teach them values and disipline and our parents have praised us for helping their children and our adult students have found God or grown closer to Him as a result. We offer a safe and comfortable place for kids to grow into wonderful adults. martial arts are religious based for anyone who cares to do their research before answering. i appreciate the positive responses, but i am still seeking answers. we can’t relocate. we have a second school in the main city, but it too is suffering along with other more popular schools in the area.

which college? PBA? Asuza? Biola? Any help?

So I’m thinking about going away to a christian college and need some advice. I’m currently attending a community college in chicago, this is my first year though, so I would be applying as a transfer student. Recently I have been pushed to pursue a degree somewhere in religion, and I’ve been thinking about it and have become really interested. So I started looking into some schools including, Baylor, Biola, PBA, Asuza. I have interest in all of them, but I’m just not sure which I should really try for, and if there are other schools that I don’t know about. So let me start off with what im looking for…

-If I go away, one of the MAJOR reasons would be to be able to leave chicago’s weather behind for a few years and go somewhere where the weather is beautiful. That’s got me really looking into Palm Beach. I really want to be somewhere where the weather is gorgeous year round and I can usually always walk around in a wife beater and some shorts.

-My specific passion is with the youth. Are there any christian schools that are known specifically for their excellence in this area? Just curious because it seems like almost all offer a degree in that area, but I haven’t found any site that ranks them according to their strength in youth.

-Social life. Anywhere I would go I would like to be fun, and I would like there to be LOTS of ways to meet new people. Now since Im christian, my ideas of funaren’tt necessarily skanky clubs, or getting drunk at the bars. I’m talking about lots of different stuff to do, different events going on, students into supporting the sports team specificallyy basketball). In general, just a wide variety of activities to do so I don’t get bored and that allows me to constantly see new faces and stuff. The last thing I would want is to get stuck being bored in a dorm for a few years to come. This is another reason I’m interested in PBA, I heard downtown is not too far.

-How strict is everything? I have no idea how strict these christian schools are. Now I dont believe in getting drunk or anything, but I cant lie, I’ll be a little bummed if there is no wheravailablebe for me to grab a beer and watch my Nuggets play every now and then lol. So not to sound arrogant, but for anyone who has gone to any or heard of any examples of harsh rules, I would like to know.

So basically that’s what I’m looking for. I really want whatever college I go to to be more than just for academics, but somewhere i can really enjoy and be happy about, and always remember. I don’t know why, but I feel strongly pushed to keep checking into Biola. However, Palm Beach is still looking really attractive with its wheather. Any other schools to look into in Florida or wherever the wheather is nice is still appreciated. Thx to all…

Hes not a christian.. please please help!?

I met this guy at a church event that one of my friends took him to. We both play music and right away we found each other and started to talk a lot. We have like EVERYTHING in common. We both want to major in music.. Hes a really good student at the high school he goes to. Has never had a girlfriend but he very attractive and could have easily gotten one. Doesn’t curse. or do drugs.

But hes never been to a church service in his life!! I am only allowed to date christians. He doesn’t know God. He said he wants to come to church to see me but that shouldn’t only be the reason. I think I like him but I can’t because of this problem. What do I do? help me ? I’m 16 =)

I know this is long, but will you please help me?

I am 17 years old and Christian and I went to this gathering for LGBT youth because I am gay. There was a table outside with Christians there and I went to them because I thought they were part of the event. My friend Karla went with me. The people at the table were adults froma church and they started saying that I would get AIDS if I was gay. And they said that the anus is made for going to the bathroom not having sex, and they embarrassed me because I’m not really comfortable talking about those things. N-E-ways, I wasn’t there to have anal sex like they assumed, I was just there to talk to people. And I wear a promise ring because I don’t want to be intimate with anyone until I meet the right man to spend my life with in a comitted relationship. I’m too young for sex, and I don’t know if I even want to do it in the ways that they kept wanting to talk about. I wanted to talk about religion and about how to form a comited relationship as a gay person, but they kept saying that God made the penis & the vagina for sex, not the anus and I got really embarrassed and I don’t know why they kept focusing on just this. My friend Karla is gay too, and their points don’t even make sense for women.

N-E-ways, I was hoping that someone here who read the Bible could help me because I am a Christian and I am gay and I just want to have love like everyone else does. And I am not going to sleep around and get AIDS and all the stuff that people say. I am a good person and a good student and one day I will meet another good person who will be a Christian man and we will have a comitted loving relationship together and follow Christ’s example to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Can you help me to know if this is OK. Pleaze?
