God has brought his kingdom people to the U of I to work in all sorts of key positions. U of I staff and administrators are crucial to the well-being of the University.
There are options for how one thinks of their work at the U of I.
One option is that the U of I is where they just happen to earn a
paycheck. Another option (a better one?) is to think of it as a
place where God has called you for his good purposes.
Typically staff and administrators are at the U of I long-term and
are in real positions to serve in key ways.
What would the U of I be like if Christian men and women in these
key administrative and staff roles met to pray together for the
good of the University, for an openness for the Gospel, for
Christian faculty, for the various Christian campus
It's probably the case that this is already happening in many
cases, if not in regular meeting settings. And the U of I is the
better for it.
The "Staff" in Illini Christian Faculty and Staff thus serve a
crucial role at the U of I.
ICFS seeks to bring together God's people who work and teach and
research and serve in other ways. All the more so, because there
are new staff members arriving each year, and many of them are
Christian. Let's all work hard to find one another and help one
another to follow Christ at the U of I.
