Ohio Christian University is excited to bring “The Most Reluctant Convert” to its Circleville Campus. There will be one show only, on January 15, 2022, at 1:00 PM in the Ministry and Performing Arts Center (MPAC). This Fellowship for Performing Arts production has toured the United States from New York to California and played on campuses such as Princeton, Vanderbilt, Wheaton, UNC-Chapel Hill, and many other esteemed institutions of higher learning. Using C.S. Lewis’ own words, award-winning actor Max McLean brings the brilliant Oxford fellow to life, taking us on his extraordinary trek from hard-boiled atheist to “the most reluctant convert in all England.” “There is perhaps no Christian writer who is more quoted, and who has had a larger influence on culture, than C. S. Lewis. Several of his books are on most any “Top 100 Christian Books” ever written lists. From The Chronicles of Narnia to The Screwtape Letters, to The Great Divorce to Mere Christianity – Lewis’ love of language, his understanding of the human condition, and his awareness of the difference that Christ can make in the life of a single believer continues to transcend race, gender, culture and time. To have “The Most Reluctant Convert” on our campus is a rare privilege – and it’s the ONE show this year, you do not want to miss.” Dr. Jon Kulaga, President, Ohio Christian University.

Ohio Christian University’s Drama Team closed on this year’s fall production of Dark Road, written by Laura Lundgren Smith, on Friday, Nov. 12th. With almost 200 audience members in attendance, including many OCU staff, faculty, and students, the cast was grateful to have such a supportive audience. Elly Diehl, a sophomore this year at OCU, played the lead character, Greta, who drives the plot of the play. By retelling the decisions that led her to become a brutal concentration camp guard, Greta reveals the deep psychological break that occurs when people normalize atrocities. Benjamin Woodland (sophomore) portrayed the character Daimler, a journalist posing as a fellow camp guard during his interview with Greta. Daimler later reveals he was a prisoner in Auschwitz for writing articles condemning the Reich and that his interview with Greta was an attempt to understand how one chooses evil and loses their soul. Both Woodland and Diehl had a difficult task of portraying these characters authentically, one searching for truth and the other still living in lies. Another actress to receive accolades is Hallie Graf (junior) who played Lise, Greta’s younger sister. Her character acts as both Greta’s moral compass and foil, a challenging balance for Graf to maneuver. In contrast with the greyscale of the set and other characters, Lise is the only character with color in her costume and hope in her voice. Unfortunately, the only thing of beauty in this story is ultimately choked out in attempt to smother truth. At the conclusion of the play, Greta turns over her sister to the Ravensbruck commandant for being a social deviant and later reveals that her sister would have died in the gassings of prisoners right before the Allies liberated the camps. Graf’s desperate cries for help and innocent pleadings left the audience haunted and speechless. With the help of Mitchell Smith (senior) as the production’s dramaturg, the entire cast brought this story to life with great care and attention to historical accuracy. All drama team members should be commended for handling such sensitive content with diligent research, careful combat training, and a mindfulness of the story’s central message: not to let evil creep in through everyday choices. As Dark Road comes to a close, the OCU Drama Team looks forward to their spring musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and they hope audiences are ready to tackle another heavy question: what makes a monster and what makes a man? Be sure to mark your calendars for April 8th and 9th to see the team take on another incredible production.

On October 27, the Office of Student Development hosted “Stampede,” an evening event for men focused on biblical masculinity and community development. The event featured fun activities such as axe throwing, corn hole, and spike ball as well as a cook-out spread by Grill-Master David Diaz of Holy Smokes BBQ out of Chicago, Illinois. The evening focus was a keynote address from Ohio Christian University President, Dr. Jon Kulaga, and faculty-led discussion groups. Over 100 men from the student body gathered with University faculty, staff, and administration for a time of fellowship, competition, and food. The purpose of the gathering was to develop community together and wrestle with “What God Requires of Men.” The evening discussion was kicked off by Kulaga, as he provided four points to consider: that men seeking after God are “Alert to the temptations of the enemy, Armed for Kingdom work, Accurate in holding to Truth, and Act on behalf of others.” “In today’s culture, there are many confusing messages and negative stereotypes being thrown around regarding what it means to be 'a man'. Therefore, it is essential that as a Christian university, we do all we can to make sure the men on our campus have opportunities to come together to learn about what it means to be 'real' men (husband, brother, father) from a Biblical perspective,” said Kulaga, adding, “Proclaiming this positive vision of Biblical manhood is not just a felt need – it is a real need – for our families, our churches and society.” Kevin Bennie, Director of Spiritual Formation and Student Life, expressed: "Now, more than ever, the church needs to give true pictures of life as it was meant to be. Men, in particular young men, need a vision for true, committed, faithful, and righteous living. This is why we need events like Stampede to create a space to challenge, equip, and walk with young men toward a biblical vision for the future." “Stampede was amazing. I got to see so many of my brothers having fun, talking about God, and becoming more aware what the world is trying to do against us. The message was so powerful; God is so good for uniting all of us through Stampede!” – Chris Hupp, Sophomore. “Stampede was a fun experience that I got to enjoy with my closest friends. I really enjoyed the axe throwing and good food. It was cool to see Dr. Kulaga speak on biblical masculinity and to be able to connect in small groups with faculty afterwards. I am happy that I decided to go!” – Zachary Maynard, Senior. “The food was amazing, the environment was great, and there was always something to do. Stampede really showcased the diversity of both students and faculty. It was also a great way to outreach to the student body and get participation from every group on campus. It reminded me a lot of youth group, just this was for adults. I highly recommend doing this event again soon!” – Anden Kallies, Freshman. Student Development is excited to begin planning next years Stampede event.
Ohio Christian University is pleased to announce that Phil Hooks, Th.M, has been appointed Vice President of Enrollment and will be overseeing all university offices responsible for recruiting and enrollment for all programs – adult, graduate, online and on-campus. He will assume his role in late October. Hooks brings a wealth of strategic leadership experience in enrollment management that spans more than 27 years. Most recently, he served as a Regional Director of Enrollment at Stratford University in Northern Virginia.

President Jon Kulaga, PhD, shared the following: “Finding a candidate with the depth of Phil’s experience in university enrollment services, as well as his love for Christ and His Kingdom, is a difficult task. We believe Phil will be a great ‘fit’ for OCU, and look forward to the impact his service will have on the university in the weeks and months ahead.” “I consider it a privilege to join Ohio Christian University and to be a part of such a forward-thinking institution,” Hooks said. “In today’s global market, Christian universities need to offer programs that prepare students to serve effectively in the church and society. Ohio Christian University is well-positioned to do this by providing a holistic, Christ-centered, and biblically integrated education. I’m looking forward to working with the faculty, enrollment, and marketing teams to bring a data-driven, enrollment management approach and strategy to the university.” Phil earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, and his Th.M from Andersonville Theological Seminary.

ATLANTA, GA – Earlier this week there was a revival in Mercedez-Benz Arena, home to the Atlanta Falcons and the Atlanta United FC. This revival was named Passion Conference 2022. Over 55,000 people gathered of all beliefs, not purely Christian people, to come together in one mind and in one place to achieve one thing: Learn more about Jesus. Passion Conference has been going on since 1997 in Austin, TX and travels from state to state each year with one goal and that is to spread the 'Passion' of Jesus and the pure love and compassion He brings to anyone that accepts who He is and his purpose for coming down to this Earth. Each year, there are numerous artists, speakers, pastors etc. that come and speak and/or perform at Passion with this year's lineup including the likes of Cody Carnes, Maverick City Music, KB, Tim Tebow, Levi Lusko and more. This group of talented speakers and artists were led by Christian & Sadie Huff, Passion Music, as well as Louis Giglio, whom we will hear more from in a minute, and his wife, Shelley. Ohio Christian University had numerous students and student athletes travel down to Atlanta to take part in this amazing experience and we wanted to spotlight three of our Trailblazers that attended and see what their experiences were like. First, I would like to introduce you to Jaret Gastin. Jay is a freshman here at OCU and a member of our eSports team and specializes in HALO Infinite. I began by asking him, "What was your experience going down to Passion 2022?". Gastin was honest in his answers which gives such a testament to his overall experience. He said, "My experience was filling. I was having doubts of what I was doing and starting to lack confidence, but the speakers and music helped reaffirm what I need to do, what my goals are and the process I should focus on." He went on to talk about what happened inside of him down there, "I guarantee that I had a fire that was lit and made me more excited to get involved with ministry. That same fire helped grow my faith even in a 36-hour period." I then asked him about how he feels he can use that experience he had in his everyday life here on campus and in his sport. He answered, "I can honestly use this experience in multiple ways. One huge thing is to show patience for people and forgive them when they've done wrong. Continuously praying for them is something Jesus would do as well. People always have their moments, including myself, and this is when we need to pray even more for those people. Having patience within my team helps in having a cooler head during competition and practice. Taking the time to help when being called to help or listen when it's time to listen instead of rushing into situations you aren't ready for yet." I asked him what he would tell someone who may be on the fence of going or may not know much about Passion as a whole, he had a simple yet true answer to this. "Go for it. I first went in 2019 going into 2020 and my life hasn't been the same since. I've dealt with depression, suicidal attempts and other mental issues. At Passion 2020, the Lord not only lifted the weight of 15 years of depression off my shoulders, but he also made it clear that He CALLED me into ministry. Passion isn't about a few churches getting together, it's a revival to kickstart the new year. You are surrounded with broken people from across the globe experiencing the conference in multiple different ways." We also had a couple volleyball players attend as well as their Coach Ally Coyle. Sophomores Cat Ferguson and Alexa Cooper both traveled down to Atlanta as well and were excited to share their experiences. Cat started first with "Passion was the most unique Christian even I've ever experienced. Being in a single stadium surrounded by 60,000 other people all willing to worship and love our Lord in the same arena was magical. You could physical see the Holy Spirit everywhere and on everyone." I asked Cat who she feels should go and she was ecstatic in her answer, "Passion was an experience that I truly believe ever 18-25 year old should attend in order to grow their faith." "Two things that really stuck out to me from Passion speakers were one, that the devil is good at what he does. He is very good at trying to find people and work his way into his life without them noticing. The devil tries to find small and sneaky ways to enter your life and pull you away from God. It's important to realize and recognize this and pull the Lord even closer to you. Two, God does not convict us of our previous sins, we convict ourselves and hold onto those." She went on to state, "Of course God is ever forgiving and He does care about our sins, but the quicker we can let go and ask for forgiveness from those sins, the quicker we can move on and get back to worshiping him." I asked her the same as I asked Jay in that "How can you use your experience back here on campus?". Cat answered with "One thing I think I can bring back to Ohio Christian University that I learned from Passion is that we need to be ever-willing to share in our faith and that Christianity isn't supposed to be easy because it can be very hard!" She continued to finish out her statement, "An important role is in every aspect of our lives being on the OCU women's volleyball team. That for me means including him in all my sporting activities, practices, and games alike. By involving God in our athletic experiences and journeys, we can further our faith and worshipping of Him, through doing what we love." Alexa Cooper chimed in in the end about her experiences as well. "I did not really know what to expect when coming to Passion, but after being in a stadium surrounded by 60+ thousand people singing worship songs to Jesus, I can say that it was like a tiny glimpse of what heaven will be like. One of my favorite things that I took away from Passion was to stop looking for my identity in other people, hobbies, or jobs, but to instead look for my identity in God." She went on to say, "When I define myself by who God thinks I am and what His purpose for me is, I can lead my team and peers because I am confident that God made me with purpose and intentionality. I don't need to doubt my abilities or my purpose in life. This was something that I have struggled with and hearing it again throughout several sermons at Passion was that I needed going into this new year and new semester at Ohio Christian." Personally, I feel one powerful story came from Louis Giglio and I have provided the link to his clip below, but it just shows that God can show you your purpose from the simplest of things that may mean the most to you if you truly think about it in the way He wishes you would think about it. https://www.instagram.com/p/CYcJF7vFHO5/?fbclid=IwAR1fKYjrTqHVh3CCE_LhCN6cc2XqD8LyHhbFCBixx_FSmiMjI5K8llw7j4Y To end this column, I want to ask you a couple questions. Were you at Passion 2022? What had God revealed to you this year already? And how will you show God's love and compassion to people around you this year? God is Good. God is Love. God is Passion.
ROCHESTER, MI – The Ohio Christian men's basketball traveled up to NCAA Division 1 Oakland University for an exhibition picked up just yesterday due to postponed games on both schedules. The Golden Grizzlies from the Horizon League came into this game with an 8-4 record while the Trailblazers entered with a record of 2-11. The Trailblazers stayed close with Oakland for the beginning of the game with the score at the first media time out being 10-18. Ohio Christian continued to battle throughout the first half, but around the 10-minute mark is when the Golden Grizzlies started to become more consistent with their scoring going on a 29-4 run. The halftime score between the two teams was 18 for the Trailblazers and 53 for the Golden Grizzlies. Jimmy Salamone led his team in scoring with five points with his team shooting at just a 25 FG% clip. As the second half began, the Golden Grizzlies and the Trailblazers continued to trade back-and-forth blows with the team from Oakland outscoring Ohio Christian 21-11 in the first eight minutes. Oakland did not let up and the final score ended with Ohio Christian being taken down to the tune of 40-108. Devon Miller led the Trailblazers with a decent stat line in 12 points and six rebounds on a 4-9 shooting night. Salamone finished tonight as Ohio Christian's second leading scorer with seven points of his own. The team as a whole shot at a 28.6% clip from field goal range. This being an exhibition, it will not go towards Ohio Christian's overall record, and they remain at 2-11 with their next game coming next Thursday against Indiana University Southeast as the Grenadiers come into Circleville for some conference play where they stand 3-4 in the RSC, while Ohio Christian stands 1-4.

Kokomo, IN – Last night, both the Lady Trailblazers and the Cougars of Indiana University Kokomo came together for a clash of who would get their 5th win of the season. Ohio Christian came in with a record of 4-5 while Kokomo rolled in with a slightly worse record at 4-9. With OCU not having a conference win under their belt this year, this put the stakes a little higher for them than for Kokomo who came in with two wins in the RSC.Kokomo jumped out to a quick lead in the first quarter as they went on an 18-5 run with Ohio Christian inching back into it late closing out the period at 11-23 with the Cougars leading. Neveah McClure led the her team in scoring with four points completing only one of her two shots on the 10 minute period. Rachel Gillum tied McClure's points with rebounds as she ripped down four boards.Neither team had a great second quarter as the scoring was limited to 5-9 with Indiana outscoring the Trailblazers. The Blazers shot just a 13.3% clip on 2 of 15 shooting while the Cougars didn't shoot much better on 4 of 21 shooting at 19%. Madison Winland scored four of her team's five in the period. At the half, the Cougars led the Blazers 16-32.The third quarter, per tradition, was when the Lady Blazers took to their scoring tear as they outscored Indiana 23-12 bringing deficit from 16 to just five going into the fourth. Taylor Norris and Rachel Bolyard led the charge to get back into the game with six and five points respectively. The team shot 52.9% from the field and 33.3% from beyond the arc.From there, both teams fought hard to stay close, but unfortunately the team from Indiana edged out the Trailblazer squad by six points in the final period putting the ending score at 58-69 with the Kokomo Cougars winning in a close game. Leading scorers for the Trailblazers were Bolyard and Norris with 13 and 11 respectively. Gillum ended the night with eight points and 13 rebounds. As a team, the Trailblazers shot at a 33.9% clip on 19 of 56 from the field and 4 of 18 from deep.The Lady Trailblazers will get back to action at St. Mary of the Woods College on Saturday, December 8th with a tip-off time slated for 1pm.

Kokomo, IN – Last night, the Trailblazers trekked over to Indiana University Kokomo for a game against the team with the third best record in the River States Conference sitting at 5-1, so their work was cut out for them before they even stepped foot into the Kokomo Student Activities and Events Center. Ohio Christian came in with a 1-3 record in the RSC. The first half started out about even as the teams traded blows back and forth until roughly halfway into the period when the Cougars took off with an 18-4 run that left the Trailblazers with a tall ladder to climb. The period ended with a score of 30-44 as IU-Kokomo seemed to be running away with it. At the half, the Blazers were led in points by Ben Casey with nine while Justin Barksdale recorded just four points, but compensated by ripping down five defensive boards. Ohio Christian shot at a 46.4% clip in 13 of 28 shooting while Kokomo made just six more shots hitting 19 of 35 at 54.3%. It seemed that Coach Coons and his team loved to endure the slow burn of a comeback as it took OCU roughly 18 minutes to climb back into the race, but climb back they did. With one minute and 38 seconds left in the ball game, the Blazers trailed just two points. It was a late back and forth battle in the last minute as William Morrison hit a 3pt shot with 1:38, followed by a good 3pt shot just 30 seconds afterwards. Barksdale got a layup with 50 seconds remaining and then DeSean Hampton of Kokomo put the Cougars up five to end the game at 73-78. This loss puts Ohio Christian at a 2-11 overall record. With his second half surge, Jimmy Salamone comes out being the team's leading scorer with 15 points with four other Trailblazers in double digits as well including Ben Casey, Devon Miller, and Justin Barksdale. Barksdale ended the game with a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds, three of which coming on the offensive side of the court. The Trailblazers have picked up an exhibition with Division 1 opponent Oakland University up in Rochester, Michigan. This game will take place in their Athletics Center O'rena on Friday, December 7th. Tip-off will be at 7pm EST broadcasted on ESPN+ with live audio and stats provided by the Golden Grizzly crew.
