Pence to teach at Grove City College

Former Vice President Mike Pence has landed a teaching job at Grove City College, a Christian school in Pennsylvania.

Pence delivered an address at the Institute for Faith and Freedom Conference at the college Thursday, where he spoke about the Israel-Hamas war and antisemitism.

The college announced it was establishing a Center for Faith and Public Life, where Pence will “immediately begin serving” as a distinguished visiting fellow.

“It is my great honor to serve as a visiting fellow to Grove City College’s new Center for Faith and Public Life,” Pence said at the conference. “Faith and engaging in public life are not mutually exclusive, nor should they ever be. History shows that Christians steadily working toward the common good have changed the world, and Grove City College opening a center shows they are committed to continuing this work.”

Pence, an evangelical Christian, is outspoken about his religious beliefs. The former Indiana governor ran for president this cycle but suspended his campaign in October. He ran on his firm traditional conservative values, including stricter limits on abortion.

During his campaign, Pence was critical of his former running mate, former President Trump, who broke ties with the former vice president once Pence certified the results of the 2020 election.

Grove City College President Paul J. McNulty said Pence is the “perfect choice” for the position because he is an “extraordinary role model for what it looks like to lead with wisdom and winsomeness in public life.”

The school said the new center will expand awareness of the “historic relationship between religious belief and public life” and find ways to integrate faith into “public policy and service” but said it is not limited to government and politics and will look at business, education, media and other sectors.

“Grove City College has been a pivotal institution in helping students grow in their faith and in understanding God’s calling for their life through a rigorous education and a faith-based community,” Pence said. “Grove City works to send out young men and women into the world to be beacons of light and truth in a world that needs leaders of integrity and principle.”
