About This Film
Standing in the Gap: Student Voices in Reconciliation features the perspectives of Christian College students as they face the challenges of diversity in Higher Education. Christian Colleges and Universities across the country continue to reflect a predominately White suburban middle class culture, a culture that is also embedded in the structures of the institutions. Critical dialogue as well as intentional action is needed. Standing in the Gap addresses these crucial challenges.
In Standing in the Gap, students share the challenges of speaking out, engaging the student body and faculty regarding the need for heightened awareness, and their own ongoing building of a biblical world view. Standing in the Gap does not pretend to portray easy solutions but rather seeks to move us into a dialogue about diversity in Christian Higher Education and to obey the biblical mandate to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly” (Micah 6:8).

What Others Have Said
“This lively, colorful, and candid video offers snapshots of students' perspectives on racial reconciliation and social justice. It admonishes its viewers to see racial reconciliation as something to be pursued by the body of Christ rather than merely seeing it as a problem to be fixed. Students everywhere will enjoy this. "
-Dr. Kimberly B.W. Denu, Associate Provost, Azusa Pacific Univ.
