I am overjoyed to be working at the place that was so formative in my early life, and where my wife and I have formed rich, lifelong relationships. Now, with two of our kids having attended as well, I know that God has prepared me for this role. I love the work of connecting with and encouraging supporters of APU who help make attendance possible for many of our students. We started as donors ourselves many years ago, with the idea of giving back what we received, and more. It is easy for me to share the mission and story and the true value to the Kingdom of God that comes through supporting APU.
