Fall classes begin this week! That means it's time for us to come together and celebrate a new school year! Formerly just a weekend of services, we now include all of the early events under the title of ALPHA – the first letter in the Greek alphabet, meaning new, the beginning, off to the right start.
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.
The Health and Physical Education major leads to a Bachelor of Science degree and prepares students for teaching health and physical education in grades P-12. The Health and Physical Education major is designed to develop knowing, sharing, caring teachers with a Christian philosophy who are specialists in the areas of health and physical education.
