“It never occurred to me that God could use me to reach my fraternity brothers,” said Skylar Walker, a senior at the University of Georgia (UGA).
When Skylar arrived on campus for his freshman year, he joined the Greek system right away and eventually became a re-founding father of Chi Psi Fraternity at UGA. He was also a Young Life leader during college, building relationships with middle school students and extending God’s love to them—but he never considered how God might use him to reach his fraternity brothers with the good news of Jesus as well.
Inside the Greek System
According to Skylar, the typical “frat” stereotypes portrayed by media are the exception rather than the norm. “Greek life provides education to members that they cannot get in the classroom,” he said. “For example, Greek students learn about leadership, how to work together to accomplish tasks, how to engage in professional settings, networking, etc.”
