What do you find most enjoyable about working at Anderson University?

I love and appreciate that the mission and vision of Anderson University is to be a Christ-centered community with a diverse faculty, staff, and student body.

The Bible is alive and my approach to teaching is lively with discussion and interaction, as I seek to infect students with my own passion for God’s Word.
