What is Christian Faithfulness?
Begin exploring what it means to be a Christian scholar. What does the lordship of Christ mean for academic pursuits? How do you discover and remain faithful to your calling? You will seek answers to these questions in the Young Scholars Program as you dive into the readings, engage in enthusiastic discussions with fellow students and practice rigorous scholarship as you prepare a faith integration paper.
“Christian scholarship isn't just worldview analysis, and it′s not just working hard. It′s about notions of curiosity, imagination and wonder in the face of God′s creation—whether that′s for the engineer or the literature major or the soon-to-be stay-at-home mom or dad.”
- Dr. Keith Martel, Professor of Higher Education
Engage in deep learning with fellow students in Young Scholars classes.
