Why Cedarville?

Cedarville has biblical convocations and a unique purpose in serving the Kingdom. These convictions and purposes align seamlessly with my calling: to serve the church, the community, and every continent. While engaging the leadership, faculty, and students on campus when I preached in chapel a few years ago, my whole family fell in love with the institution. We have prayed for an opportunity to serve in this capacity. I am excited to work alongside such bright and caring scholars.
