Bridge-builders of faith, science, & culture.

We are cultivating a stronger church through meaningful dialogue with mainstream science.

Time for a more productive conversation

God’s creation is amazing—it beckons us to explore and discover. But the last century has seen an unhelpful pattern of the church disengaging from science. Science for the Church equips Christian leaders and scientists of faith with content, resources, networks, and events in pursuit of a day when science is no longer a barrier to faith, but instead augments the work of the church.

Science and Spirit: An Interview with Fred Ware

Science and Spirit: An Interview with Fred Ware

Relationships are central to our work at Science for the Church. We include interviews in this newsletter to introduce you to scientists, theologians, and Christian leaders who have taught us much. Fred Ware, professor of theology and associate dean for academic affairs at Howard University School of Divinity (HUSD), is one such individual. Ordained in the Church of God in Christ, his teaching and research focus on the connection between Pentecostalism and race, culture, healthcare, and religion-and-science.

Spirituality, Meet Science

Spirituality, Meet Science

Here’s what I’d like to hear when I tell friends and others that I bring science to church—“Wow! That’s amazing.”

And yet—to be honest—here is what I often hear—“What? Hmm… I’m not sure what that means.”

How God Works

How God Works

I get a little annoyed each time a science and faith conversation gets railroaded by the question of origins, climate change, or some other contentious issue. Sure, these are issues that our churches must wrestle with, but by putting all our attention on areas of felt conflict, we might entirely miss the ways science reveals how God works.
