My Article about Christian College Alumni

Since about 1995, I've been collecting examples of successful Christian college alumni. I did this initially in response to one prospective Asbury College student's suspicions that attending Asbury would not prepare his daughter for "real life" after college. I now have 39 pages of alumni from more than 50 Christian liberal arts and Bible colleges in the United States and Canada. And I've purposely collected only examples of those not working in vocational ministry, knowing that many people would assume that careers in missions or ministry are readily available to Christian college graduates . . . or even that those are the only fields open to them.

I recently was asked to write an article on this topic for the Christian College Guide to be published by the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals, which will be distributed at Christian college fairs across the US. Jordan's girlfriend, Hillary, helped me put the article together. Today, I found the article online at

If I may say so myself, I think there are some impressive and interesting examples of what a degree from a Christian college or university can lead to. Hope you enjoy it.
