A MESSAGE TO FACULTY DURING COVID-19
As the Coronavirus pandemic sweeps across our country, please know that we in InterVarsity’s Faculty Ministry are praying for you. Thank you for continuing to serve students and fellow faculty, even from afar—we are so grateful for you! Our president, Tom Lin, has a special message for faculty at this time. Please take a listen!
As faculty, administrators, or staff, you face tremendous pressures. As Christians, you long to be faithful to your callings in all areas of life. But the challenges are real.
Whatever your position, InterVarsity’s Faculty Ministry has a vision to see you flourish and be a redeeming influence for Christ in the university. On campus and online, we seek to provide support and encouragement by connecting you to:
- A local community of Christian academics who reflect the diversity of the body of Christ
- Regional and local gatherings of Christian academics
- Guidance for spiritual formation
- Tools for ministry
- Stories of faithful practice
- Materials related to integration of faith, learning, and practice
Faculty Ministry wants you as faculty to know you are valued and the work you do in the academy is significant in the Kingdom of God.
GFM was foundational in helping me develop an integrated view of my faith, vocation, and what a Christian professor could look like. I made lifelong friends who still impact my Christian walk today. –Francis Su, Professor
We serve a wide diversity of faculty through communities on campus. These focused ministries exist to serve faculty in their specific context.
