The SJSU Faculty Staff Christian Fellowship is organized for the purpose of honoring and glorifying God. We do this by praying for the well-being of the University community, by setting forth a positive example of the Biblical Christian worldview, by attending to the needs of the campus community, and by sharing the love of God through Jesus Christ.

We welcome all who would like to learn more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus or who desire to glorify God on the SJSU campus.

The name of the group emphasizes staff and faculty, but students and others are welcome. 

 

"Missional Moment"

Faculty Commons, a ministry of Cru, sends a weekly note called "Missional Moment".  Some that might be good for discussion have been collected at https://bit.ly/3ftaF4p.

A much larger archive and the form to subscribe to the weekly "Missional Moment" (starting again in the fall) is at https://www.facultycommons.com/fc-missional-moments/ .

Buff Furman's "Missional Moment"

https://mailchi.mp/facultycommons/payattention?e=2ea6412835 has an article sent through Faculty Commons in which Buff Furman discusses "Oddly enough, I find the more religious people are, the less likely they are to actually pay attention to what is written in the biblical text."
