Favorite Thing About Work: The great students I've been privileged to teach throughout the years who are now pastors, missionaries, professors, and a host who worship through their work professions.
Was an Evangel Student: Raised a pagan so didn't get to attend any of these great schools. But thanks be to God who saved me and gifted me with a great education.
