Gift From Faculty Commons

June 2017 –Faculty Commons is offering a free copy of A Grander Story to any faculty or administrator who would like one. It combines Biblical understanding of God’s place in our lives and work with personal narratives from faculty from across the country as they succeed (or fail) at living out their faith.

The book will certainly be valuable to those who are already in their careers, but it will be a special blessing to those who are just starting out in academic life.
— Robert P George, Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University

If you would like a copy for summer reading, contact Steve Pogue.

Discovery Park

Dr. Rhonda Christensen, a Research Scientist at UNT, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2007 but after a few months of caustic treatment and a long stay in ICU she was too ill to continue the standard chemo regimen.

Faculty & Staff Worship Service – September 8

Goolsby Chapel

We hope you enjoyed our worship time at UNT’s Goolsby Chapel to begin the semester.

Dr. Guido Verbeck (Chemistry) told about lessons from his life both within and beyond the university, and how our place on campus mirrors the situation of Esther in Persia.

Thanks to Josh Drew and Emily Cranford from the Village Church Denton for providing music!

Each of our events is open to the entire UNT community.

“Without worship, we go about miserable.”
—- A. W. Tozer
