Media @ New Hope CalgaryWe wrap up our sermon series on the ‘University’ by looking at the vocation of a professor. How do they uniquely image God’s teaching heart? How can you experience God more in the teaching moments that fill your life?

“When Jesus concluded his address, the crowd burst into applause. They had never heard teaching like this. It was apparent that he was living everything he was saying—quite a contrast to their religion teachers! This was the best teaching they had ever heard.”
Jesus in Matthew 7:28-29, MSG

“Whenever it’s not about me… I believe I’m being most effective.”
Dr. Patrick Finn, School of Creative and Performing Arts, U of C

“[I love] developing a relationship with a young person at the beginning of their grad studies and watching them grow into full fledged scientists. This takes 5 years, usually the mid to late 20’s, a time in which people grow from being kids to adults. It's a magic transformation and I get to be a major part in it for them. Big responsibility.”
Dr. Warren Piers, Chemistry Professor/Researcher, U of C

“What I love most: probably figuring things out and helping others to figure things out.”
Dr. Jo-Ann Badley, Dean of Theology, Ambrose University

“Perhaps the most marvelous aspect of being a professor is the continuous learning.”
Dr. Annette Lane, Faculty of Health Disciplines, Athabasca University

“Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.”
Matthew 5:1, NIV
