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.
