Dr. Steve Long
As a dedicated Christian, he cares that students know about Christ, but admits that the topic of faith doesn’t come up very often in the courses he teaches, and doesn’t feel it appropriate to use class time for those discussions.
Still, he has found a way to “go to the students.” He explains:
“I have found that evangelism is like fishing – going to where the fish are, and seeing whether they are biting. For me, that meant going to where students are: they are online.
“I created a website for students to learn about me and interact with me. I make it clear that this is my personal website, and not an official UCSB one.
The site includes:
• My Christian worldview – the nature of God, man, and truth
• My perspective on work and career – from a talk I presented at our Christian Faculty/Staff Fellowship
• Pictures from my vacations, and my grandchildren.”
