About

The Witness is an email newsletter for young Christians, especially those faced with the daily trials of life on a college campus or in other secular settings. As Christians who believe every word of Scripture is inspired by God, our views are often dismissed in favor of more contemporary, humanist thinking. It’s very easy to feel alone in our faith. The Witness seeks to fill that void by connecting like-minded Christians through social media.
