The Faculty Gatherings Toolkit
All of the resources in one place
This toolkit provides everything needed to gather faculty/administrators/staff to launch a community of faculty following Jesus together on campus including a guide and template for hosting a first faculty gathering, and resources for further gatherings.
Who: Faculty/Administrators/Staff who love Jesus and are open to what God might do on campus.
What: Gather, discern and pray how God’s renewing this campus. Cast vision for following Jesus together through the Faculty 4 Loves:
- Love God/one another
- Love your campus
- Love your academic discipline
- Love our world
When: Find a time that a quorum can meet. Early morning or lunch can be good times. Ask for a 45-minute meeting and keep to that time.
Where: Somewhere that feels safe and hospitable—someone’s office, a conference room, someone’s home, a church.
Why: Because where two to three are gathered in Christ’s name, He is present, promises to answer prayer, and the “magic” of Christian community and shared vision happens.
