We welcome all faculty, staff, and students back for the Fall 2012 term.


Welcome to FSCF!

The officers and members of the Mercer Faculty/Staff Christian Fellowship welcome you to browse our web site to learn more about our group and our activities. More important, we welcome you to attend one of our weekly meetings or special events (follow the calendar link at the left of this page for a complete listing), and to consider joining our group.

Meeting Times: We meet every Tuesday at 12:15 PM during Fall and Spring semesters when classes are in session, at the Tarver Library main conference room (Thigpen-Parsons Seminar Room). Bring a sack lunch. Wear a name tag, if possible. It's okay to come late and leave early if your schedule requires.

Special meetings will be announced in advance on our website calendar, via email, or the University Calendar.

FSCF Vision Statement: The FSCF vision is to enable Christian faculty and staff to live out the Gospel more successfully in the Mercer community. We endeavor to help our colleagues discern the call of God on their lives in the academic community.  We envision the coming together of believers from throughout the university in order to:

  • become more effective in their respective professional roles,
  • become more Christ-like servants as teachers, scholars, and staff, and
  • present and promote the Judeo-Christian world view in the marketplace of ideas.

FSCF Statement of Purpose: Recognizing the unique influence we have by virtue of our positions on the faculty and staff of Mercer University, and desiring to use our influence to have an impact for the Lord Jesus Christ on the university community and, indeed, upon higher education, we affirm our obedience to the command of the risen Christ, "You shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." (Acts 1:8)

By maintaining a Christian Faculty/Staff Fellowship on the campus for the purpose of:

  • Cultivating our individual relationships with the Lord and effecting a unified impact on the campus
  • Sharing mutual concerns and interests with colleagues through discussion and prayer
  • Providing a forum for communicating information regarding various Christian ministries on campus and supporting their work
  • Promoting opportunities for Christian worship
  • Serving as a resource to the campus and community by providing speakers, and endorsing activities and programs
  • Engaging academic fields of inquiry from a Christian perspective
  • Investigating and promoting opportunities for involvement with other Christian faculty and staff on a regional and national level
  • Identifying Christian colleagues on other campuses and encouraging them to become involved in similar efforts
  • Sharing and praying for issues facing higher education and society
  • Developing and encouraging a dynamic Christian witness as we, our students, and our associates go throughout the world
