Embracing Our Calling to the Academy

Date recorded: 22 May 2016 | Speaker: Daryl McCarthy | Event: ELF Academic Leaders Network


Even though God created the mind and repeatedly commands us in Scripture to seek knowledge as well as wisdom, tragically the Church has often viewed education as an enemy instead of as a crucial part of God’s work in the world.  Scholarship is a holy calling.  Scholarship has played a critical role in the development and expansion of the world Christian movement over the centuries.  Today national leaders are being trained in universities and our future pastors and denominational leaders are being trained in seminaries and Bible colleges.  So it is critical that as Christian educators we do our work with hearts aflame with worship, minds guided by Christ’s lordship, hands ready to serve, all in our effort to glorify God through our teaching and scholarship.
