TEACHING PHILOSOPHY


I believe that establishing relationships with students from the start says, “I care about YOU.”  The follow up requires that I am available, attentive, and encouraging.  Accountability is key to student improvement.  The notion that aspects of faith must remain separate from science is continually reflected upon as each course blends the two in the way students consider the scientific discoveries, in the way students hone their scientific skills, and the consideration of discovering the very principles and laws set forth by God.


It a privilege to partner with others in service to our students through the integration of faith and scholarship.  The best possible outcome for a successful scholastic exchange hinges on a faith-underpinning where a) the active, ongoing growth of the professor results in modeling Christ-likeness; b) the transfer of scientific knowledge happens through the alignment of the discipline with biblical truths; and c) the translation of that knowledge manifests student-service for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.  The overall worldview of the student will strongly influence how the student will utilize his/her education as a citizen of the world.  In this setting at Regent University, Christian leadership can facilitate the making of world changers.
