We offer it as a loan or as a grant, with loans available to offer more money in order to help facilitate the event.

Rev. Jonathon Weyer
Jonathan founded a campus discussion group, The Thomas Society, at The Ohio State University. This group focused on dialogue between Christians and atheists. Such discussions prompted the university to award The Thomas Society and SSA at OSU with a Multicultural Award. Because of this work, the national Secular Student Alliance asked him to be on their speaker’s bureau, the only Christian minister to hold this distinction.
