A Truly Higher Education - Dr. Ben Merkle

"Dr. Ben Merkle is the President of New St. Andrews College in Moscow, Idaho. If we’re going to fight the culture war at the highest level, we need higher education. Following decades of the Marxist “Long March Through the Institutions,” America has an uphill battle to reclaim our colleges and universities. But in Idaho a small school named New St. Andrews (NSA) is leading the charge against our broken higher education system. And the leader of New St. Andrews is Dr. Ben Merkle. NSA’s website reads, “Graduating leaders who shape culture living faithfully under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.” As you'll hear, everything New St. Andrews does is in service of this simple mission, which has taken shape under Ben's leadership. And not a moment too soon. In our conversation we discussed: - The origins of New St. Andrews in the vision of Pastor Doug Wilson - "The COVID Moment” - Ben’s path to leadership - The NSA curriculum and mode of student life - The Biden loan forgiveness program - Postmillennialism and institutions - Why Women should go to college - Ben’s vision for the future of NSA" from video introduction

New Saint Andrews College

New Saint Andrews College exists to graduate leaders who shape culture living faithfully under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

To fulfill our mission, we provide young men and women with the highest quality undergraduate and graduate education in liberal arts and culture from a distinctively Christian and Reformed perspective, to equip them for lives of faithful service to the Triune God and His Kingdom, and to encourage the use of their gifts for the growth of Christian culture.

Merry Christmas from New Saint Andrews College
