Every ECE faculty member sees teaching at OC as a ministry.  Read how the ECE faculty views how faith and learning are integrated at OC.

Jeff Bigelow

I get to help students develop the gifts God has given them and teach them to use those gifts in His service as engineers.  I mostly view my job as encourager to learn and not give up.

Steve Maher

I’m driven to provide students a top-notch engineering education in a Christian environment.  In Silicon Valley, I saw people “doing it right” and “not doing it right”.  I want to use my experiences to make a difference for students so they can make a difference in the world for our Lord.

Ken Bell

The world has many problems.  Many can only be solved by persons possessing great skill and understanding alongside great love and compassion.  It is exciting to share in developing just this kind of people, prepared to really make a positive difference!

Pat Smith

I teach at OC to make a difference in the lives of young people starting their life. I know faith and Godly wisdom lead to a full life, a rewarding career, and eternity in heaven.  I want my students to know that too!

David Waldo

OC has given me many opportunities to work closely with students. I have been a sponsor on the European Studies program and I have been the sponsor for the Alpha service club. It is very rewarding being a Christian mentor.

Joe Watson

God has provided me with a rich set of experiences that I can share with young people who plan to be engineers.  I believe learning should be fun and I enjoy the fellowship of our students and faculty as we learn together how to work with God’s wonders to enhance our lives.
