"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought in complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me." -John 17:20-23

Lance Steiger, a Resident Assistant at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, wanted to hold a Bible Study. But when school officials found out about the gathering, they threatened disciplinary action, ranging from letter of reprimand to dismissal or loss of scholarhip. "They're prohibited from leading or organizing those events in their rooms or in their residency halls where they have supervisory authority over other students," university spokesman Mike Rindo said. "Does he have to give up his religious rights in order to be an RA?" asked Jeremy Tedesco of the Alliance Defense Fund. "He can't ever hold a Bible study in his own dorm room, he can't potentially pray with another student in his dorm room. I don't know where this ends." Campus ministries are watching the situation with interest and trusting God to use it for his purposes. Wisconsin Congressman and Eau-Claire alum Mark Green stated, "If we don't get satisfactory answers soon, I think we'll have no choice to at least have hearings to take a look at what the rights of students are." Already the ACLU and Americans United have lined up behind the university. "

The Be Prepared Video contains candid student interviews about their transition from high school to college. 120 students were interviewed on four university campuses to #!^emble a true-to-life depiction of the challenges, consequences and importance of connecting with Christian friends, roommates and ministries. The DVD helps students understand how important a ministry connection is, to withstand the stress and temptations they will confront when leaving home, and shows them how to make a connection online before arriving on campus. This practical tool should be shown to every graduating senior before they leave home"
