Course on the relationship between faith and natural science – Science and Faith – running succesfully

A new brand, aimed at people who are struggling with the tension between faith and natural science. With that idea, Marten Visser knocked on the door of Prof. Dr. Chris Kruse, Emeritus Professor of Medicine Research, over a year ago: “Tell me, Chris, would you like to write a course on the relationship between faith and science?”

Chris went to work and developed the Science and Faith course, based on the course he has already been teaching in churches and for youth groups for years. The course is part of the new Search4Truth brand. The course has now been running for six months with five mentors, three of whom are (emeritus) professors. Time for Chris to take stock.

Chris, what made you say “yes” to Marten’s proposal to set up a course on faith and science?

“I considered it a calling and said to my dear wife: I MUST do this!  

After many hours of hard work and encouragement and directions from Marten, and also Dick Bos, we did the studio recordings in Harderwijk, followed by all the additional activities to promote the course on as many (a)social media as possible.”

What are the initial results?

“We went online at the beginning of September last year with, for me, unexpected and very gratifying results: we have already welcomed more than 2,700 students, with – despite the above-average degree of complexity – the usual percentages of students who are guided by mentors and the usual completion rates. 

I am impressed by GlobalRize’s excellent software, which makes the mentorship by the five mentors go smoothly. I thank God daily for this unique opportunity to glorify His name even more through the discoveries of natural science.”

“A wonderful course!”

The fact that the students experience this in a similar fashion, is evident in one of the enthusiastic responses from a student who received a certificate after successfully completing the course. Angleton John Sardido informed us, “What a wonderful course! I have learned much. To God be the Glory!”
