Welcome Week Fall 2016: several campus ministries worked to welcome and reach out to incoming students. Booths in the photo above in Friday’s Community Fair included (from left to right) the Newman Center, GLO Church, Cru, and Epic.
InterVarsity, Chinese Christian Fellowship, AACF, Orthodox Christian Fellowship, the Veritas Forum and other groups participated Friday – or at Sunday’s Club Showcase.
Many thanks to everyone who’ve included their name on the “Meet the Prof” list of Christian faculty. That list started with 25 names six years ago. It’s since grown to 72 names. Please let us know if you’d like an updated copy of this list.
Hard copies of this list were given to every campus fellowship group to pass along to interested students. In addition, Cru included a this list of Christian faculty in their welcome bag – given out to over 2500 incoming students (and counting).
It’s incredibly significant for students to know that there are faculty in every college (and most departments) who are followers of Jesus Christ.
As you remember, please pray for the incoming students. Perhaps some of them are even your students. Pray for the choices they will be making their first few weeks on campus: socially, physically, and academically, and spiritually.
Just a few photos from our Welcome Back BBQ this past weekend:
Many thanks to our friends David & Lisle O’Brien for hosting this event at their home off Clark Valley Road in Los Osos.
This was an opportunity for 70 or so faculty, spouses, and kids to connect together, enjoy some food and encouraging fellowship, and share our vision for the upcoming year.
It was great to connect and hear what God is doing in our lives and on campus. We’re planning a similar event again next year – we hope you can join us.
Please save the date and plan on joining us for our Fall Welcome Back BBQ – Sunday afternoon September 18, 2016. More info next month.
Excited as Cal Poly Civil Engineering professor Kimberley Wormley and her family join Cru staff and students ministering overseas this summer – left this week, will be back in July.
So very sad: 39 year old UCLA Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Professor Dr. William Klug was killed today by a disgruntled student in a murder/suicide.
Professor Klug was a committed follower of Jesus Christ was involved with the UCLA Veritas Forum, serving as a moderator in 2012. In response to the very question he helped UCLA students and faculty explore — “Does God Care?“ — his answer was clearly yes.
Please join us in praying for his wife – who just lost her husband and their two young children – who just lost their dad.
Fascinating video from Veritas Forum speaker William Lane Craig on the fine tuning of the universe.

Here’s a short clip from the film:
