Have you ever wanted to present to your group timely topics which are both scientifically up-to-date and a positive testimony for the Christian faith? Perhaps we can help.
The University of Alabama Christian Faculty Fellowship (CFSF) has formed a Speaker's Bureau of credentialed experts who have found credible scientific support for their Christian faith. And the CFSF is pleased to provide this service at no charge! (Any offering you wish to make should be directed to the CFSF to help support our efforts to present the gospel to students, staff, and faculty at the University of Alabama.) The faculty who have agreed to serve in this capacity would welcome the opportunity to share how their Christian faith is supported within their own profession.Below is a brief sketch for the various speakers as well as topics which they can address. Please feel free to contact these individuals to schedule. Please direct any questions to Robert Brooks, 226 Alston Hall, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487; (205) 348-8987 (work) (205) 752-3818 (home office).
