Christian colleges from across the nation will gather in Kansas City February 29 for the Annual Midwest Christian College Expo.
For the 22nd year, the college fair will feature Christian colleges and universities plus ministry opportunities. Organizers say this could be the largest ever, based on the number of schools represented and attendance by the public.
The one-day, free event runs from 10 a.m. to Noon. on Saturday, February 29 at Colonial Presbyterian Church, a large suburban church located at 9500 Wornall Rd. in south Kansas City, Mo., just a few blocks from the State Line.
“Education continues to be at the top of a list of priorities as expressed by American families in recent polling” says expo coordinator Anita Widaman, “This event has proven successful in helping guide young people to a Christian college that is right for them.”
Widaman says that college education should reinforce the strong family values of hard work, compassion for others and give young people an opportunity to change the world. Often times, public education struggles to do that because their values often conflict with those of Christian students.
“That’s why a Christian college education can make such a positive impact on students,” Widaman said.
In the past over 60 colleges have made the event a huge draw for high school juniors, seniors and their parents scouting some of the nation’s best colleges, universities and missions opportunities.
Organizers say the Expo is a convenient way to visit with colleges from many states by finding them in one location-for one day, thus saving travel time and gas. In 2019 colleges attended from Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Iowa, Nebraska, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan, Virginia, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, Arizona and numerous other states.
The expo is organized by the Metro Voice Newspaper – Kansas City’s Christian community newspaper. For twenty nine years, Metro Voice has served 110,000 readers with an edition based in Missouri and one in Topeka/Central Kansas.
