One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

Galen Smith

Galen Smith, DMin

Professor Emeritus of Economics


Dr. Smith believes God brought him to Cedarville to encourage students to think biblically about their business careers. He enjoys seeing the integrative links between economics and Scripture, and then encouraging students to think beyond the classroom to see how these links can impact their lives. It brings him a great deal of joy to be able to see all of life from God’s perspective. He enjoys studying many branches of economics, including labor and transportation, and to couple these studies with his passion for theology.
