Faculty Ministry

For InterVarsity staff, there are additional resources available by logging into the website here.

This discussion guide is the main resource for study of the text of I Peter. Often there are more questions than could be well addressed in a single small group gathering, so you will need to make some choices about what to include for your meeting. You could spend more than one meeting on a given section of I Peter as well.

Connecting students and faculty in this way opens many fruitful doors. Christian students now know of Christian faculty or, more precisely, faculty who engage in an academically rigorous life and yet still believe in God.

It’s not often one finds students excited to learn about fractals from a faculty member outside of the classroom. But for Chris Goree’s monthly dinners for faculty and undergraduate students, this is common.

”Friends, keep showing up, keep praying, keep experimenting, and keep watching for signs of God’s kingdom on your campus. It’s about faithfulness, not numbers, and about a special work that God will unfold in your unique university context. The fruitfulness will come.”

Tom Trevethan shares a prayer service dedicating the academic year and seeking God's provision for your campus fellowship. We pray that your meetings with faculty may bring unity and encouragement.

What good is it if we gain academic prestige, yet forfeit our souls? Robert Kaita, Principal Research Physicist of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, offers his perspective and a Scriptural basis for aiming to serve Christ and achieve academic success simultaneously.

The practice of spiritual disciplines enriches our understanding of God, deepens our obedience, and increases our longing for God. Many faculty members deeply desire to follow Christ in the academic world. May this guide beckon you to establish a regular rhythm of seeking and finding God.

This piece was initially featured in the December 2012 edition of the Lamp Post, the email newsletter of InterVarsity Faculty Ministry. Thomas Trevethan examines our inclination toward and intention in using Scripture. Are we using it to advance our own agendas or are we applying God's living word to our own lives to seek and do the will of God?

This article was the featured piece in the February 2013 faculty email newsletter, the Lamp Post. We are delighted to offer these video clips to our readers because we believe Jeff Hardin’s presentation offers Christian faculty who teach and pursue research in the sciences and technology an important perspective on their work.
