Our Christian foundation is what makes our university unique. This is the place to bring prayer requests, discuss theological issues and how to become better Champions for Christ.

Thanks! Yeah, my wife commented last night that we haven't put this much work into an event since our wedding. In a way, it's not dissimilar in that it's a celebration of family!

I'm about 6 lbs away. Since November I've lost 80 lbs. :D
