PROFILE:

Southern Wesleyan is my alma mater, and I returned here to teach in 1986. Writing the history of the university, "How Firm a Foundation," at its centennial in 2006 was a labor of love for me, as was co-authoring the history of our sponsoring denomination, "The Story of The Wesleyan Church." The most fulfilling part of my job, though, is seeing our graduates serving the Lord and His church in effective ministry.
