Unprecedented Speaker Line-up Scheduled for Faith and Learning Symposium

Missouri Baptist University strives to promote academic excellence in a Christian environment. The third annual Faith and Learning Symposium allows faculty and graduate students from MBU and other universities to present their research within the context of faith and academic disciplines.

Scholarly Research Through the Lens of a Christian Worldview

As the third annual Faith and Learning Symposium approaches Friday, April 9, in the Pitch Room of the Learning Center on the campus of Missouri Baptist University, an important question arises. Why do we need faith integrated into academic and scholarly endeavors at a university in 2021? This is the question we are asking faculty members, presenters and organizers of this year’s symposium.

The Cruciality of Owning Your Faith

Spiritual crises, as difficult as they can be in the life of a young Christian, are necessary for a person to truly understand and own their faith. Even though it was the most difficult period of my life, I wouldn’t hesitate to go through it again because I discovered what I truly believed and who I am. This is what I found during my own spiritual journey.

This verse from the Bible has brought me great inspiration in my own faith journey: “If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”  –Jeremiah 29:13     Photos courtesy of Madisyn House

Listening to the Lord, Leading by Example

When Ethan Metzler graduated in spring 2019, he believed his time at MBU was over. However, when the position of resident director at Pillsbury-Huff Residence Hall became available, he felt the Lord call him to lead the building of young men he was a peer with just one semester before. Regardless of the position change, Metzler continues to deeply and meaningfully connect with everyone he is around at MBU, pointing to Christ through his actions.
