This week’s faculty spotlight is professor and newly published author, Dr. Keith Marriner. Dr. Marriner is an adjunct professor in the School of Christian Ministries as well as an editor and writer for One Accord Resources, a publication of LifeSprings Resources.
Like our previous faculty spotlight, Dr. Marriner came to Emmanuel as a student. Although he grew up in the church, surrounded by a ministry lifestyle, Dr. Marriner wanted to take a different path. However, God began to show him differently.
Clint Ross, Instructor of Digital Media Production and Film Director, is our faculty/staff spotlight this week. Unlike some instructors, Ross’s journey with Emmanuel began as a student.
Although he was older than the other students when he started classes at Emmanuel, that did not keep him from getting involved.
