Much has changed in U.S. culture since the 1970s, requiring teachers to adjust their methods of reaching students who are markedly different from their parents’ generation. But through the decades, Christian educators have tried to demonstrate God’s love through caring, patience, knowledge, and commitment, and in a Christian institution, they also seek to bring a Christian worldview to their students. But if some students at Christian universities are not believers nor seekers and when students lack basic biblical knowledge, teachers in Christian institutions must adjust their teaching methods. Online teaching creates even more challenges as students and teachers can see each other and communicate only through electronic equipment, which can enable students to “hide” behind a computer screen or, conversely, provide a safety net so students can speak more openly. To meet the changing belief systems of students over the decades and changing technology, Christian higher education should be innovative to meet ever-changing student needs and higher education’s goals.
