Mr. Spacetrain, if your goal is to work in churches that mostly serve those who already are believers, and to work mostly with the youth of church members, then attending only a Christian college might serve you well. But if you have a heart for the lost in America's secular or New Age culture, you would do well to spend part of your college career living among such people. Consider spending a year or two at a Christian college and during that time get the best grounding you can in a little theology, a lot of Bible, and a lot of study of worldviews and of spiritual conflict. Then transfer to the best state university you can get into, live in a dorm, and put that training to the test with your lost and often despairing classmates. Later on if you want to make a career in professional ministry, you can go to seminary and get more education at a much higher level.
