I am so thankful for Belhaven! The word of God was poured over me and I learned to think critically about all of reality during my studies at Belhaven University, and God used the instruction received as well as the relationships formed here to give me more of a heart to serve Christ and His Kingdom. I love to teach the Bible here at Belhaven and to see students transformed by Christ and equipped for His calling on their lives. Soli Deo Gloria!
