Mission & Purpose

The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.

The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.

Francis Schaeffer

By Sarah Ashley Sheaffer

On April 8 2011, Dr. Bruce Little shared about Francis Schaeffer, an evangelical who changed the way Christians in the 1960’s thought about their relationship to the culture and how his ideas still apply to the Church in the 21st century. Approximately 100 people were in attendance for the event.

Dr. Little's lecture commenced with a brief biography of Schaeffer. Interspersed with anecdotes from Little's direct communication with Schaeffer's daughter, Deborah Middelmann and data derived from Schaeffer's personal materials housed at Southeastern, Little painted a portrait of this influential evangelical leader who was known as, " the man who will actually listen to you and answer your questions."  Dr. Little also offered a brief synopsis of Schaeffer's apologetics and his relevance for Christians today.

Following the lecture attendees were invited to participate in a question and answer time with Dr. Little. Question topics included implementing Schaeffer's L'Abri model today, what makes Schaeffer's ideas relevant today, and who or what was most influential to Schaeffer's thinking.
