As a 19-year old college student at Campbellsville College, Dr. Scott Bryan fell in love twice. Once with his then girlfriend, now wife of 37 years, Nancy and also with the idea of becoming a Christian College Professor.
“I sensed God calling me to be a Christian College professor,” Dr. Bryan said. “When Nancy and I began getting serious I remember telling her that I would never be rich, would always drive old cars but that this was a call on my life.”
This week at Chapel we were joined by Tim & Marie Kuck, cofounders of Nathaniel’s Hope, a ministry dedicated to celebrating and assisting kids with special needs (VIP kids) and their families. The life and passing of their youngest child, Nathaniel at the age of 4 ½ in 2001 led the family to become aware of the needs of the special needs community.
Growing up in Savannah, Ga., in the 1950s and settling down in on a little farm in Danielsville, Ga., Dr. Sallie Krickel might not have known then that her story was meant to be shared.
Dr. Krickel met her husband, Edward, during her schooling at Wesleyan College in Macon, Ga., where he served as an English professor. The couple married and settled down in Danielsville, Ga., where they raised their children on a small farm.
Wesley Johnson knew from a young age that he was meant to work in the film industry.
“I was around seven years old and my mom had a friend that worked for Turner Broadcasting Studios,” Wesley said. “I started off as an extra for Cartoon Network, dancing in a group with other kids during commercial breaks and was upgraded to MC, introducing the next show.”
When Michelle Kendrick decided to pursue a career as a Math Professor, she did so with one goal in mind…to make math fun.
“Most students come in afraid of Math,” Michelle said. “They don’t like it because they don’t think they can do it. But I’ve been fortunate enough to have had some great teachers who made Math interesting, fun, and accessible so when I started teaching I took what I learned from them and applied those lessons into my teaching philosophy.”
Please join us on Friday, March 31st as Music major, Anna Kitchens holds her Senior Recital entitled, “Dusk ‘til Dawn” at 5p.m. in Taylor Chapel.
“Dusk ‘til Dawn” will be a mixture of classical and spiritual pieces, a lecture, a spoken word poem, and a modern piece Anna has composed.
For Anna, this performance holds a personal meaning.
Like many children that grow up in the IPHC, Devin Stover, a Christian Ministries major, knew all about Emmanuel through attending church camps and Talent Quest. However, it wasn’t the testimonials of students or even a divine encounter with God that brought him to EC.
It was the gentle push of his loving grandmother who knew Emmanuel is where he needed to be.
“It was really my Grandmother that got me here,” Devin said. “She persuaded me every chance she could get.”
