Chris Maxwell, Campus Pastor of Emmanuel College and a member of our Social Sciences Adjunct Faculty, was recently interviewed by Epilepsy Advocate, an online and print resource dedicated to increasing awareness of Epilepsy and providing support for people and the families and friends of those diagnosed with epilepsy. In 1996, as a pastor, husband, and father, Chris was attacked unexpectedly by viral encephalitis. The scarring it caused on his brain led to small seizures and memory loss, diagnosed quickly as epilepsy.
