International Program Director

I have always had a heart for international students and culture. Developing and teaching in the Connect the Nations has allowed me to marry my greatest passions: education, international relations, and my faith in Jesus. I am extremely grateful for friends who shared the Gospel with me in college. This experience unfolded a powerful and meaningful design for my life: serving international communities locally and abroad beyond the acclaims of education, while witnessing life-impacting transformations in the lives of students through a simple message of God's love.

International Instructor

It's such an amazing opportunity to serve international students and learn from them. I have always loved connecting with people from different nations and cultures. Being an instructor with Connect the Nations as has opened new ways to grow and connect with people from around the world. Through this program, I am able to live out my passion: helping people with their education. This program has also allowed me to share my faith, another passion. I feel extremely happy walking with Jesus Christ while teaching English through the Bible.
