Personal Vision of DCU’s mission:

I consider my mission at DCU to teach my students about mission and encourage them to get involved in mission all over the world. DCU has a history of preparing and sending missionaries, and I try to play a part in that. I hope to help students better understand different societies and cultures so that they can love the people in them and build bridges for the Gospel that will change lives by bringing people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
