When it was founded in 1636, Harvard College’s mission was to train ministers for the advancement of the gospel, and it is well known that today, Harvard’s mission is very different. Still, churches and parachurch ministries persevere through a variety of challenges on ivy league campuses to win men and women to Christ.
Today on the St Joe Q&A Podcast, we spoke with Joel Byman. He’s the son of St Joe’s Senior Pastor Greg Byman, and 2017 valedictorian graduate of Carroll High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Joel is a sophomore at Harvard, a member of Hope Fellowship Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a leader at the Campus Crusade for Christ ministry at Harvard. While Joel was home for Christmas break, we asked him and his father, can a young Christian student survive and even thrive in an elite educational environment like Harvard?

Many sermons in the St. Joe archive are machine-transcribed. St. Joe is presently transcribing its entire sermon library to render its content more easily accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing, those who speak English as a second language, and to make the sermon content searchable for everybody. While machine transcription makes this logistically and financially more viable, accuracy is sometimes sacrificed. St. Joe is gradually replacing machine transcription with human transcription as time and financial resources allow. Each sermon costs between $30 to $60 to transcribe. If you would like to help see the preached Word of God become accessible to more people, please consider an investment in the St. Joe ministry through the PayPal platform by sending funds to StJoeOnlineGiving@gmail.com, or click here.
