Having taught in a variety of academic settings over the past 15 years, I find undergraduate education to be the most gratifying. We have the privilege of watching insecure teenagers mature into confident adults, poised to lead the church and contribute positively to the world’s ever-changing crises. It is satisfying to see these young women and men mature in their faith as they wrestle with probing questions through a more sophisticated theological lens grounded in a solid biblical foundation.
