Working at Florida College at this stage of my life is providential. I love the campus, its faculty, staff, and students. I believe in its mission statement. I cannot imagine a greater blessing than working with and serving so many brothers and sisters of like precious faith and striving toward the same eternal reward. It is truly a unique environment and I pray we never take it for granted.
We are a small school that fosters an environment where I regularly interact with my colleagues from other departments. The idea of a liberal arts education isn’t reserved just for the students because we as faculty get our own liberal arts experience, unlike most academic settings.

Florida College provides a unique, Christ-centered environment that affords a sense of peace that can hardly be found working in corporate. Yes, this can be found within one’s own being but, to have that surround you on a daily basis enhances the life experience of walking in service.
