Why C3@LBC
In 2010 I moved from part-time to full-time status at LBC. As I learned more about the needs student’s faced on campus I became passionate about developing a professional and comprehensive counseling and career center that would meet the ever growing and changing needs of students on our campus. The fall of 2013 was an exciting time of offering praise to God for his faithfulness in the development of C3@LBC. I have been amazed and humbled by his blessing of support, resources and incredible reception by students, faculty and administration. To God be the glory for the great things he has done!

Why God lead me to C3@LBC
This position was an answer to prayer for my wife and me. We had been asking God and considering what might be the next step in my career progression. When this position was first made known to me, I just knew it was where I needed to be. I was really praying that it was where God wanted me to be. I believe that issues and concerns that are addressed during this time in an individual’s life could provide for tremendous growth opportunities as they mature and develop in their faith and career progression.

Why I counsel at LBC?
I love working with college age students. So much happens during those four years in terms of gaining independence, formulating a worldview, and cementing one’s faith. I consider it a privilege to journey alongside these young adults as they learn and grow.
