MY PASSION:

Several years ago I used a short template to write my mission statement and after prayerfully seeking the Lord, I came up with the following: My mission is to identify, clarify, and nurture Kingdom principles in myself and others.  Teaching and administration in Christian academia fit right in with this mission statement and provide me with an avenue to fulfill it. Thus, I am passionate about learning and about sharing the things I learn that can enable me and those I teach and/or work with to identify, clarify, and nurture Kingdom principles.
