“God calls missionaries and pastors, but he also calls people to be light and salt in the business world. I believe that we are training the next generation of great business leaders who will impact the world in amazing ways.

You are a Christian first and a marketing professional second. Marketing itself is a tool for business, just like management, accounting, and finance. If your passion is marketing, then I will show you how to do it honorably and to the glory of God. Come to every class ready to learn for life—not for a grade—grow in the Lord every day, and dare to do great things!”

Insurance Agent at Symmetry Financial Group

“PCC prepared me for my career on two fronts. First, I learned more about God and His Word. Those lessons taught me how to carry my faith in a world that often rejects God at every turn. Second, the academics, especially my Professional Selling class, prepared me to be the professional I needed to be. That class showed me what it would be like to be a salesperson and the grit I would need to be successful. I learned a lot about interacting with people on a professional level and many aspects of the business world that I would not have known had I not gone to college.”
