Why Teach at AU?

“I wanted to teach at a university committed to employing a diverse faculty and becoming a true reflection of the body of Christ. I love teaching the truth of God’s Word without compromise and helping people come to a full understanding of the Bible so they can live and serve Christ wholeheartedly. The Bible is alive and my approach to teaching is lively with discussion and interaction as I seek to infect students with my own passion for God’s Word.”
