SAU is a university with wonderful faculty and a strong academic program. I love working with people who express and demonstrate a consistent and solid commitment to Christ, academic quality, and care for students and each other. As I was looking for my next place of service in 2017 and praying about where God would send me, the only indication I had was “North,” which Michigan certainly was from my location then in Texas. I am very pleased that He led me to Spring Arbor University and proud to call Michigan home.
