“As a mother of four who works part-time, going to back to school for a Master’s has often felt like a pipe dream. The opportunity to study through your unbelievable scholarship has been a huge gift! God bless your generosity!”

Jenny, current MAFC student

“I am a non-traditional student who works full-time, the sole breadwinner of my small family, and a relatively recent convert. Without the support provided by donors like you, I would most likely never have been able to pursue a master’s degree. Thank you so much for your generous support!”

Jason, current MAFC student

The Center’s mission is to educate faithful citizens to understand and to impact the many facets of the American culture through dialogue articulation with a God-centered vision of the world.  It is with the hope that the vision contributes and strengthen the institutions that govern the American people.   The Center’s programmatic offerings serve local and regional civic society in Texas, and beyond through our timely online offerings of courses, podcasts, and social media outreaches. We curate insightful, contemporary thinking on social issues and challenges of today.   The 4 Pillars supporting the Center’s vision include: 

  • Pastoral Initiatives
    Academic Programs
    Continuing Education for Adults
    Ecumenical & Interreligious Dialogue   

 Your gift will help fund scholarships for much needed students in the Master of Art for Faith & Culture, and the Certificate programs for the MAFC.
