Graduate Studies Faculty

Faculty are different here. They look like you’d expect—professional and friendly. They have the academic qualifications, the skill, and the experience to help you learn.

But they’re different because in addition to that, they have a heart for students and a heart for God. They pray for those in their classes, and at the start of every class period.

Teaching isn’t just what they do. It’s their ministry—their calling. They understand you’re not just earning a degree or even preparing for a career. You’re preparing to go out and serve Christ, to make your life count for Him.

You’ll be challenged to learn and given the tools to do it. When you need academic guidance, faculty will be there to help during class, office hours, and even in their own free time.
