For centuries, Christians have cultivated faith in themselves and others by engaging in prayer, evangelism, discipleship, and education, with Christian tertiary institutions playing a vital role in this nurturing of faith. However, previous studies have shown that Christian educators have also been complicit in depleting faith in others. This erosion of faith has been well documented in American "Christian" universities like Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, primarily due to modernity and secularization. For faith to thrive, it has to be backed with intention, and this is especially of paramount importance in American higher education today. As the oldest Seventh-day Adventist University, Andrews has nurtured faith in the global Adventist community through its large seminary, educational training, publication work, international teaching schedule, and participation in key committees of the global church. This case study explored how faith impacts the work of employees at Andrews University. Although previous studies have explored intentional faith integration, this article focused specifically on how the employees at Andrews University integrate faith in curriculum planning, employee interviews and publications, in relation to the ten types of faith integration framework of Azusa Pacific University (n.d.) outlined in their Faith Integration Faculty Guidebook.
