Chair and Associate Professor of Christian Studies
The College of Christian Studies exists to equip students to think and live as Christian disciples in their unique calling. Learning to think and live as a Christian disciple includes saturating oneself in Scripture, reflecting deeply about personal existence and vocation, living in community with other believers in a local church setting, critically examining non-Christian worldviews, serving others in need and proclaiming the gospel to all people.
Our mission? We exist to prepare Christian disciples who faithfully serve Christ and his church.
Our vision? To be recognized for preparing Christian disciples with the knowledge, skills, virtues and attitudes necessary for serving Christ and his church. The College of Christian Studies will model a sincere commitment to promoting the gospel and preserving biblical truth.
The College of Christian Studies consists of two undergraduate degree programs; one has five emphases.
CSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
