"To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his." Job 12:13

The Faculty / Staff Christian Community is an officially recognized organization of the University of California Santa Barbara. Its list of participants is comprised primarily of individuals who sign the annual Easter Proclamation, "He Is Risen," published in the Daily Nexus.

The first Easter Proclamation appeared in 1986 as the result of a faculty prayer meeting. It was originally signed by 13 faculty members. In recent years it has grown to more than 50 faculty and well over 50 staff members.
