What do you believe is the most important thing about your job? Showing love to others, making a positive impact in the lives of students, developing those relationships, and helping students learn and grow in different areas.  

How have you seen students' lives changed as they encounter God at BCA? For many students that I teach, this would be their first experience hearing about God and His love for them.  It is amazing for me to read and listen to their questions regarding aspects of God's love, mercy, and grace.  The process of helping them understand a love we don't deserve and that He has a purpose and plan for each of their lives.  BCA provides a special opportunity for students to grow closer to God, in combination with their academics and athletics.
