Encourage Christian Scholars

Scholars often work in isolation from one another as they pursue research in academic institutions. NCS brings together Christian scholars from various fields and departments for fellowship and encouragement. We meet regularly to pray for one another and to discuss how the Christian faith informs and motivates our pursuit of truth in our academic work.

Equip the Church

By virtue of their academic experience Christian scholars are positioned to help equip the church to face challenges offered by religious pluralism and secularism. NCS provides local churches with a rich resource of Christian scholars specializing in a variety of fields. We seek to equip the church to be faithful and effective witnesses of the gospel by helping Christians think through how to engage the culture with confidence.

Engage the Academic Community

We engage the academic community in order to demonstrate the credibility of the Christian faith and message. We do so by hosting lectures and debates on a variety of topics. We also welcome academic colleagues who are investigating the Christian faith to dialogue about religious belief and to consider how the Christian gospel can transform every aspect of our lives, including academic pursuits.
