As part of #GivingTuesday, support Hannah Eagleson’s editing / writing for ESN.
Recently Hannah Eagleson and I chatted with author, musician, and public speaker Andy Crouch about the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN). We focused upon the role of Christians in academia as culture makers. Here’s his take on the need for ESN:
The health of the university depends on scholars who will devote their lives to research, teaching, and service with excellence, integrity, creativity, and love. We cannot just assume that Christians will naturally find their way to and through this challenging vocation: they need to be encouraged, developed, supported, challenged, and sustained. Neither local churches nor conventional campus ministries alone can meet this need, which is why the work of Emerging Scholars Network is so essential—not just for scholars themselves, but for the university, our culture, and the church as well.
One of the things Hannah loves about being an editor for ESN is the opportunity to see all the ways our authors and members are culture makers, people who add something amazing to the world. On this #GivingTuesday, prayerfully consider a gift to enable Hannah to continue to support Christians in the university as they grow in their ability to live out God’s Kingdom and love their neighbors through culture making. Your partnership in ministry is much appreciated. To God be the glory!
