What Nicholas loves about his job

“There is a wonderful atmosphere at the college, with staff and students who are passionate about serving God.”

Nicholas values integrity and gentleness, and to be able to do what he does in an environment that nurtures these values is what he loves about serving at PBC.

Outside of college, Nicholas enjoys reading and playing the piano.

How does Nicholas think PBC equips students to serve God's purposes in our generation?

PBC equips students to serve God’s purposes in our generation by equipping them with theological depth and the skills to apply theology to everyday life.

PBC encourages students to explore the depths of who God is, what He has done, and their own depths as they live in a relationship with Him.
