What is your favorite memory from Evangel?
The friends I made at Evangel! I am still in contact with many of them, all of which love and serve God. The chapel is the icon of God’s endorsement on each student, as He launches them into the ministry where He places them.
How did Evangel help you identify/develop your calling?
All truth is God Truth no matter where it is found. I subscribe to a Christian worldview of living – I live the same life in church and in my workplace.
How did your experience at Evangel prepare you for life after graduation?
Evangel gave us the tools to deal with life. Not everything in life is black and white. We must decide how we will respond when we are faced with the evils of this world.
What advice would you give a current student preparing for the workforce?
Love God with all your heart, ascribe all blessing to God, and be excellent in your pursuits.
What would you look for if you were in a position to hire new graduates from Evangel?
Someone who has integrity, loves God, and loves people.
