I began taking classes at Bryan College as an "adult learner" and was immediately sold on the difference teaching from a Christian Worldview makes in the personal and work lives of students. Learning from the likes of Dr.'s Jud Davis, Paul Boling, Drew Randle, Adina Scruggs, and Jeff Bruehl, I was encouraged, challenged, and empowered to continue my education. Now, I have the honor of teaching others in the same way.
