Jessica Swisher of The International Institute for Christian Studieswrites:
"The IICS is a non-profit academic missions organization, committed to
placing individuals withPhD's in teaching positions in secular universities
around the world. I believe that someof your members might be interested
in participating inthis exciting and unique ministry opportunity. To our
knowledge, IICS is the only organizationcommitted exclusively to providing
full-time faculty for appointments of one year orlonger to secular
universities outside North America. Since 90% ofthe world's leaders attend a
university, this is a strategic and too often unreached people group.What a
fantastic way for Christians in your field toparticipate in missions using their
education and experience. Please contact me for moreinformation.
