Why I came to Taylor:

I came to Taylor to serve students alongside an authentically passionate faculty whose love for the Taylor community is only outmatched by their love for Jesus Christ. There is a perpetual atmosphere of optimism, encouragement, and grace that exists both in and outside of the classroom. It was impossible to not become captivated by this environment.

Advice to incoming students:

Remember, your professors here at Taylor were once students themselves, too! Engage with us, because we have not forgotten this fact and, more importantly, we want to get to know you, both academically and individually.

Exercise grace to both your peers and, yes, to your professors for not seeing you like you see yourself; if you do this, both you and your relationships with others, during your time here and beyond, will flourish.

Finally, don't forget to focus on Jesus and your relationships. Your studies are important, but don't become so consumed that you forget to carve out daily quality time both with Him and others.


Zack lives in Upland with his lovely wife, Stacey, and their two dogs, Littlerock and Harleygirl. Together, they enjoy weight-lifting, spending time outdoors, serving in their local church, watching a good movie on the couch, spending time with their family, or spoiling their two pups.
