ACAD Integration of F&L

Integration of Faith and Learning

Have you ever watched a drummer in a band? There is something unique about their understanding of all that is happening as they play. They set the tempo, know the role of the other band members, are in tune to the audience, and find a way to sing along even as they are playing their instrument. They are fully engaged and participating in the moment.

With this idea of immersion, Taylor University intentionally integrates faith and learning on our campus. The stage is set, but it requires full participation by the individual members of our community. This integration isn’t defined by a devotional, prayer before class, or the required Bible courses. Instead, it is woven throughout classes and life on campus.

Foundations of the Christian Liberal Arts is a class taken by all incoming students that prepares them to integrate their faith into their learning. The class encourages students to think critically while pursuing the higher call God has given us and sharing life with those they come in contact with throughout their lifetime.

Life should be an act of worship in which we delight in the Trinity in everything we do. Learning cannot be fully accomplished without faith that God has created everything for a purpose.
