Integration of Faith & Learning
Framing all of life within the story of God’s redemptive work in Jesus Christ
Our Philosophy of Faith Integration
At Jessup, we believe that faith integration is the natural and intentional assimilation of Christian beliefs and practices into the learning process across academic disciplines. We affirm that God is the source of all truth and has revealed truth both generally in the natural world and specifically in Scripture (Ps. 19) and the person of Jesus.
Integration can occur in multiple dimensions of the learning process: the curriculum, the classroom, course design, and/or directed experiences, and involves the personal faith of both the professor and the students. A comprehensive faith integration philosophy takes both content and technique into account. The Gospel worldview provides a redemptive framework and common language for the content of faith here at Jessup, while a variety of integrative techniques are encouraged and modeled.
Robust and intentional faith integration in the learning process is vital to the fulfillment of the University’s mission to develop transformational leaders who display excellence in professional skill development grounded on strong Christian character and complements the greater campus-wide spiritual formation initiatives.
