Your Purpose. Our Mission.

At CSU, I believe my education and experiences in both PK-12 and higher education institutions, as well as brick-and-mortar and online environments, have uniquely prepared me to impact students seeking to serve in educational institutions. God has given me strong educational preparation and professional experiences that are far better than I deserve or could have ever asked for. I desire to use these experiences to catalyze bright, tenacious future leaders to do excellent work in schools for Christ and His Kingdom. I respect the role that CSU has within Christian higher education and am honored to participate in helping move the mission of the University forward.
