Why I Came to Taylor

I came to Taylor to share with students the wonder of biology that it may deepen their relationship with God (the Creator), their love for each other (created in His image), and their ability to be good stewards of creation and informed Christian leaders in the community (impacting His creation). I believe Taylor provides a rich and supporting community which encourages Christian growth and learning.
