Speaking at Urbana 12

Yesterday, I spoke at Urbana 12,¬†InterVarsity’s triennial student missions conference, on the topic “Serving Christ as a Professor.” There was a great turnout, and two young faculty joined me on stage at the end to answer students’ specific questions about becoming a professor.

Speaking to about 200 students at Urbana 12

I also put together a suggested reading list for students interested in learning more about life as a Christian professor.

Overall, it was a great experience. I was impressed by the number of students who had high-quality questions about their career paths and the journey toward becoming a professor.
