My wife and I feel deeply that God led us to Messiah College. I
have always felt a call to play an active part in furthering Christian
higher education, and I can think of no place I would rather be than
here at Messiah. The heritage of the College is comprised of many
stories of people giving sacrificially so that students could attend
Messiah and discern the vocational calling of God on their lives.
Without the financial and prayer support of many, Messiah would not be
able to fulfill its mission of nurturing young men and women toward
lives of service, leadership, and reconciliation in church and
society. I am grateful to be a part of the Messiah family.
