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.

An Introduction to Faculty Ministry
A video to cast vision for what God can do when faculty gather together and great way to introduce the Faculty 4 Loves to a new group.
Square inch Seminars include short “TED” like talks that share about following Jesus on your "square inch. The template shows you how to hold a 45 minute Square Inch Seminar (that includes one Square Inch Testimony). The Square Inch testimony guide provides reflection questions and tips on how to write a 5-10 minute Square Inch Testimony.
