Our Mission

We are passionate in seeing as many people as possible receive the love of God through his son Jesus Christ.

Our Purpose

ichthus

We deeply desire to introduce the world to salvation in Jesus Christ through the profession of him as Lord and belief in his resurrection from the dead. 

 We want to teach others how to evangelize through a living example while utilizing love, truth, grace and reason to reach those who need Christ.

Our Vision

Our vision consists of three concentrations:

  • Using the gifts and influence of Dr. James Tour, we remove barriers to faith by examining natural evidence and engaging the scientific community
  • Doing good works in local communities like providing meals
  • Raising a small army of likeminded people with a passion for evangelism and good works

Dr. James Tour

   Born in New York City and raised in White Plains, NY, James Tour was raised in a secular Jewish home. He knew little of the teachings contained in the Bible. While attending college at Syracuse University, James was presented with the gospel of Jesus Christ by a student who served with the Navigators Campus Ministry. James then encountered the saving power of Jesus Christ in his small dormitory room.

  At Syracuse, James was discipled by Dr. T. E. Koshy, the evangelical chaplain of Syracuse University, and Bakht Singh from India. In graduate school at Purdue University, James was further taught in the faith by Professor Delmar Broersma. After post-doctoral appointments at the University of Wisconsin and Stanford University, James was mentored in the faith by Professor Buck Hatch from Columbia Bible College and Seminary (now Columbia International University). 

  James served on the Chemistry Department faculty of the University of South Carolina from 1988 to 1999, and then he moved to Rice University in Houston, Texas where he has served since 1999. He has made several breakthrough discoveries in the laboratory in the areas of organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, materials science and nanotechnology. He has also started several successful companies, some of which are publicly traded, while also raising 4 children with his wife, Shireen, to whom he has been married for 40 years. (Click here to see his full credentials.) 

  Yet, what Dr. Tour values most is his relationship with Jesus Christ. Whether it is students gathering at his home, interviewing other scientists, or engaging his thousands of followers on social media, Dr. Tour is not ashamed to declare of the life-giving power of the gospel while boldly proclaiming the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
