Assistant Professor of Computer Information Systems
School of Business and Leadership

CCU’s faculty is truly unique in their ability to weave the truths of our faith and scripture into their respective areas of expertise. Many people wonder how the principles of our faith could inform a subject like computer programming, but when you think about it writing code is a way of creating something out of nothing and then attempting to refine it, to “work out the bugs”. That is remarkably similar to what God has done and continues to do with us.
