The gap between our work and our faith can often feel like a chasm—but it doesn’t have to. The Christian call to live for God’s kingdom as agents of the restoration of all things includes our studies, our jobs, and even our hobbies.
Join us as we learn from Francis Su, award-winning mathematician, about his own journey toward bridging his faith and his vocation, from his story of becoming a Christian to his struggle to integrate his faith directly into his vocation as a mathematics professor and writer. No matter what stage of life we are in, or what industry we come from, the call to work in service of Christ remains the same.
