Adam Baron is the Director and at-large Collegiate Minister of the Society. His ministry is apostolic as a convener; resourcing, educating, developing, and setting alight, assets to advance the Gospel in the collegiate world. Challenging, encouraging, and supporting students and the ministry leaders who work with them, to live vibrant, flourishing, and full lives of faith on mission.
It was said of Tatlow, and can be equally said of Baron, that in him,“…we have a leader wholly consecrated in mind and spirit to the cause of Christ and His Kingdom.” This was evident and executed in Tatlow 100 years ago, and the same torch is carried today by Baron. For 25 years he has worked with college and university students at four different institutions of Higher Education and four different national and international collegiate para-church ministries.
He has served as a Resident Director, Assistant Dean of Students, Dean of Students, Study Abroad facilitator, Retreat Leader, Strategist, and University Instructor; (teaching courses to undergraduate and graduate students like, Issues in Culture & Evangelism, Systematic Theology, The Church & Society, Old & New Testament Survey, Christianity’s Historical Roots & Modern Relevance in China [taught in Shanghai, China], A Short History of Christianity & Missions [taught in England], and his personal favorite, “God on the Quad: The Integration of Faith & Learning” [taught to first-year students in Malibu, California]).
He leads with heart and mind holding three Master degrees from Wheaton, Pepperdine, and King’s College London. In Addition to his KCL dissertation, Student Christianity: Its Roots and Relevance in Christian Missions and Ministry in the Modern Age. He authored and has led college students through the study guide, Jesus Goes to College: Navigating His way of Life with the Gospels as your Compass. (A Christian-living book about following Jesus, the four Gospels, and being a college student).
The point of the Society’s spear is invariably towards the hungry hearts of truth seeking students. Hearts and minds in the critical university years that will eventually lead families, businesses, nations, and civilizations. Inside and out, Adam knows the college and university landscape when students have big questions, attempt worthy dreams, and are making life-altering decisions. “What is my mission? Who might I marry? What am I mastering? Who, or what, is mastering me?” The Tatlow Society strategically operates in these questions with students and collegiate ministry partners pointing them to Jesus Christ.
The stakes have never been higher for the mind and soul of the university and its students. This is the inspiration and mission field behind the work of The Tatlow Society.
