Faith-in-Scholarship

Facebook Twitter

FiSch is a network of fellowship and support for Christian thinkers both in and out of the university. We love the rich diversity of God's world and find that knowing Jesus as Creator, Redeemer and Lord transforms the way we understand it. We share a passion to see ideas bearing good fruit as we investigate problems, create opportunities and find smart solutions to the challenges of our time.

WYSOCS has a splendid record of Christian engagement with all kinds of subjects, and I look forward to seeing fruit from the Faith-in-Scholarship project.
