Why did you choose Covenant?
I prayed about it, and it seemed to be the best fit for me. The Christian community was very appealing.

 

How is Covenant unique?
Covenant is unique in several ways. One way that it sticks out to me is that it is truly a Christian college. There are several Christian colleges in the U.S. that don’t exemplify Christ to the fullest, but Covenant is truly blessed with Christian leaders.

 

What has been your favorite experience at Covenant?
Growing stronger in my walk with Christ.

 

What is your favorite class, and why?
My favorite class is Logic, because I love to argue.

 

What person at Covenant has had the greatest impact on you, and why?
My roommate Andre Glover has had the biggest impact on me at Covenant, because he has been a true role model to me not only in the baseball aspect, but as a brother in Christ as well. He is always looking out for me and keeping me accountable for everything I do.

 

What’s your favorite part of the day at Covenant?
My favorite part of the day at Covenant is nighttime, looking back upon all of the great things that happened during my day.

 

What are your post-graduation plans?
I am not exactly sure what I plan to do for a career, but I do plan to write non-fiction Christian literature on the side. I am thinking about working in youth ministry somehow, or potentially teaching a Bible class and coaching baseball for a high school.

 

How is Covenant equipping you for the future?
Covenant is pushing me to the limit in academics, athletics, and spirituality. I am becoming a true man of God, and this is strengthening me for my life of evangelism in anything I do.
