Faculty Ministry Summer Series 2023
What is the Faculty Ministry Summer Series?

On campus and in our communities, division and polarity is increasing. In contrast, God invites people into a way of living that is centered on shalom, wholeness, harmony. Paul even reminds us that through Jesus’s life, death, resurrection and ascension, former divisions are gone. In fact, Jesus is our peace.

As faculty members, administrators, and staff on university campuses, how can we live out this life of peace in the midst of seemingly constant transitions, change, and divisions? Throughout the month of July, join InterVarsity’s Faculty Ministry to explore what this may look like in a series of webinars and on-line gatherings.
