Academics as Mission
This spring semester, ESN is delighted to introduce a new series, “Why I Appreciate Christian Scholars.” In this series, we’ll hear from believers in many vocations and walks of life who want to share an encouraging word on why they value the work of Christians in academic vocations. We launch the series today with a reflection and prayer by Gary Anderson, a Gordon-Conwell seminary student and Park Street Church pastoral intern with a background in business.
As we plan for 2016, we’re deeply heartened by the way emerging scholars participated in Urbana15. We’re filled with excitement as we work on ways to provide more mentoring, conferencing, and communal conversation for members in 2016.
Urbana 2015 is growing into the best Urbana yet for Christian academics living missionally in the secular academy. Will you support ESN to help make that happen?
