At PCC, I enjoyed meeting new friends from all over the world and even from my own country. My favorite event at PCC was Thanksgiving Day because of the Turkey Bowl and the food. And I like soccer a lot! I also met my husband at PCC in Public Relations class. He is my soulmate and the most amazing guy! I also have a beautiful dog named Bailey; she’s a Shih Tzu and dachshund mix.
As an enrollment advisor, I look forward to helping students through the admission process and helping Spanish-speaking applicants and their families learn more about PCC. I would definitely recommend PCC to future students—you’ll have a great experience here!

I decided to go to PCC my senior year of high school. I really never even thought about college before then. I had heard about PCC many times since my sister graduated from PCC and my brother attended for one year. I told myself early on that I was not going to stay for all four years, but God had other plans. I also told myself that I would not get my master’s from PCC, but once again God had other plans for me. Seven years later, I have both an undergraduate degree (Pre-physical Therapy) and a master’s (Business Administration) from PCC.
While my plans were different than God’s, I would not change any aspect of how my life turned out. I met my wife through PCC and many of my closest friends. I am happy for the opportunity to be an enrollment adviser to help prospective students to find the plan that God has for their lives. I look forward to helping each student brought my way to apply to PCC.

Growing up, I had always heard about PCC, but it was never on the top of my list until I came and visited the campus during my junior year of high school. I fell in love with the school and the friendly people here. God put me here, and I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, but I knew He wouldn’t let me down. By God’s grace I was able to graduate debt free in May 2016 with a Business degree in Advertising and Public Relations. Yes, PCC is very affordable, and there are many financial aid options offered by the school to help you on your way. But the value of the knowledge, memories, and spiritual growth you obtain while attending PCC is something you can never put a price on. The memories and friends I’ve made through my four years here are ones that will last a lifetime. The time you spend at college will be some of the best days of your life. Don’t waste the opportunity.
Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions you might have about PCC or just college in general! I want you to make the most informed decision you can about this next big step in your life, so I’m ready and willing to help in any way I can.

- Advice for future students:When I came to PCC, I found out, slowly but surely, what was really in my heart. Had I been serving the Lord to please my parents or pastor, or was it really in my heart to serve Him, as my choice? There are so many different ministries offered here at PCC, but it is your choice to get involved. Allow God to show you what it is that He wants you to do in service to Him. You’ll find out that living for Him is a lot easier than living for others.

- Fun fact about myself I was named after my dad
I wanted to attend PCC since 6th grade, but my parents and pastor didn’t agree with my decision when it was time to start college. I decided to attend another Christian college after graduation, but I knew in my heart that God wanted me at PCC. After one year, a coworker of mine encouraged me to join a 21-day fast with her. I praise the Lord for the many prayers He answered in regards to PCC during that time. I watched Him change the hearts of my parents and pastor, and also provide financially.
PCC provided the best college experience for me. It was here that I was able to overcome fears and be a part of many activities—learning to swim, running my first 5k, cheerleading, singing with the Spirit Singers, leading the Juvenile Detention Center ministry, and taking my first flight by going on a missions trip to the Philippines.
I am so thankful that God led me to PCC. Almost every semester, I would show up with half of the money, money for only books, or no money at all. Yet every semester, God provided. I learned that college is a place to become independent, but also completely dependent on God. I had a plan for my life after college graduation, but God had a better plan. As an enrollment advisor, I encourage you to not let the lack of things discourage you from doing or staying in God’s will. Faith is not the absence of doubt; it is trusting God in spite of your doubt.

- Fun fact about myself When I was 15, I was smashed in the face with a hockey stick (by one of my best friends) and needed over 50 stitches in my nose and eyelid.
Because the school I went to used the A Beka Book curriculum, Pensacola Christian College was the first Christian college I learned about. But all through high school I wasn’t sure where I would end up going, and as a senior I chose another school. After my freshman year there, I felt God was leading me somewhere else but wasn’t sure where. After a year of working to save money and praying about the next step in my life, I still wasn’t sure where God wanted me to go, or what I wanted to do with my life.
After talking to my parents and realizing that I didn’t want to sit out another school year, I decided that I would just go to PCC and after a semester or two God would show me what He wanted. This decision to just step out by faith, not knowing what God wanted me to do, turned out to be the best decision I have ever made. While it took until my senior year to really know what I wanted to do, God used the four years I spent as an undergrad to really work in my life and change me.

I grew up in Pensacola right next to PCC, so I had the opportunity to watch the ministry develop and expand. Since my parents are part of the staff and faculty, I have been able to experience many aspects of the ministry, including attending Pensacola Christian Academy from third grade on, and even had the privilege of being in two video classes for A Beka Academy.
Attending a Christian college helped me build upon the foundations that my parents and earlier experiences at PCA had helped me set. I am so thankful for the excellent education, caring professors, and valuable life lessons that I learned at PCC, as well as the definite emphasis on following the Lord’s leading for my life. I look forward to helping prospective students as they, too, follow God’s guidance in His will for them.

Growing up, I always knew about PCC, but I never really considered it for myself. I didn’t feel called into the ministry, so I didn’t see the point of going to a Christian college. I went to a different Christian college for one year at the request of my parents, then attended a community college back home. After two years there I knew I needed to finish my degree, but had no idea which university to attend or which one I could afford for that matter. It was then that I really considered PCC. They offered the degree I wanted for a price no one else could match. But more than just their great pricing, PCC also allowed me to be in a place that could show me a godly perspective on a secular degree. Through my classes and the many people God has placed in my life, I feel well prepared to pursue whatever career God may have for me in my future.
As an enrollment advisor, I welcome the opportunity to answer any questions or help in any way. I want to ensure that you know for certain that Pensacola Christian College is the place God would have you attend.

I grew up in a Christian home as an Air Force brat. My family is my world, and my parents are two of my most favorite people. I have two brothers (one older and one younger). My amazing dog Molly is also very much a part of my family. Since I moved often growing up, I quickly learned to be flexible and how to adjust to different people and perspectives. It’s true that the people make the place, and God has blessed me with wonderful friends everywhere I’ve been.
When I came to PCC, my sole purpose was getting my degree. I didn’t take my spiritual growth very seriously or even consult God for what He would have me do. However, through my four years of college, God has changed my heart on so many things. He used my classes, friends, and the awesome preachers that I was constantly exposed to, to grow me, which I am so thankful for.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to be an enrollment advisor here at PCC! I love hearing new students’ unique and personal stories, and helping them to learn just what PCC is all about and how it could be a great fit for them

I learned about Pensacola Christian College at a very early age. My father received his master’s degree from PCC and had high praise for the academic excellence. Growing up on the mission field, we used the A Beka curriculum up until high school. My plan was to finish high school and attend a secular university to pursue a career in media journalism. But God had other plans and began to convict me of my desire for the career I chose. One day I asked myself, “Why should I spend the rest of my life giving people bad news when I can tell them about Jesus and give them good news?” I dedicated my life to full-time ministry and determined to enroll at Pensacola Christian College.
I finished my pastoral ministries degree in spring 2011. After much prayer, I stayed and pursued a Master of Divinity degree and graduated in 2015. I stayed on staff to assist prospective students with the plans that God has for their lives. I am grateful for the opportunity to be an enrollment advisor and look forward to helping you apply to this wonderful college.
