Haley Lejeune

Current Student

To say that my freshman year was life-changing would be an understatement. I came to PCC as an unbeliever clinging to a prayer I said as a child. Throughout my first semester, I was confronted with the gospel. Just weeks before my first interterm, my struggle with my spiritual state came to an end. I went to my suitemates’ room and told them I wasn’t sure if I was saved. There, I realized my need to trust in the finished work of Christ alone, and that realization is undoubtedly a result of God’s intervention through PCC’s gospel-focused ministry.


PCC has been the means through which I have made many of my most important life decisions. Without a doubt, God used PCC to make me the servant I needed to be for Christ and set me on a trajectory for further growth in His calling.”

Christopher Wagner

Alumnus 2015, 2019

“PCC has influenced every day of my life. My work ethic, my work product, my work reputation, and more have been influenced by what I learned at PCC.”

Rachel Wapinsky

Alumna 2014

“I had a friend who went to PCC, and when she came home at Christmas, she was a different person, a better person. I determined that I wanted to attend a college that would provide me with that guidance and growth opportunity.

Carol Costello Salter
Alumna 1985

One of the ways PCC prepared me for my future beyond college was through Christian Service and church internships. As a senior, after completing some requirements, I was able to intern at a local church my last three semesters on campus as a Pastoral Ministries Major. It showed me real life ministry experience on what and what not to do at a local church. It was great knowledge and experience that I can use for my future ministry.”

Nathaniel Robinson

Alumnus 2021 

I came in 1977 for the one-year business certificate. I had an agreement with the Lord that I would stay only one year. I would then leave to work in an office because I could never stand in front of people and talk. I quickly realized that the agreement was one sided. After receiving my certificate, I ended up staying and getting my education degree. I realized that the old saying is true–when God calls, He qualifies. Here I am 46 years later, still at PCC. I am so thankful for the many opportunities I have had to serve throughout the ministry. I have had the privilege of teaching grades 1-5, (including seven years in California), teaching college, working in ABB, and as an administration at PCA. God planted the desire to teach in my heart and then so graciously filled that desire. It has been my honor and privilege to be a part of this ministry.

Faith Nulph

Alumnus 1981

Classes, friends, faculty, and my work areas all helped me prepare for life after college. My friends helped me work on relationships. My classes gave me the knowledge I needed for my area of focus and how to deal with every-day life situations. The faculty helped navigate me through my time there. My jobs enhanced my work ethic and how to work as a part of a team to accomplish the tasks at hand.

Chris Song

Alumnus 1999

“I have gone to a few different institutions of higher learning for my undergraduate degrees and received my graduate degree at PCC and an MBA from a university in Pennsylvania. I look back most fondly at my time at PCC.

 

I absolutely loved my classes and have nothing but positive memories and respect for the faculty and staff.

I now have three little girls, and one of the main things I was looking at when we were deciding on a school for them to attend was finding a school that used the Abeka program, which we did! So now it is so fun to have them study the curriculum I am familiar with and see how successful it is for their education and spiritual development.”

Robert Hochberg

Alumnus 2004

PCC has allowed me to grow in ways I didn’t even think I needed growth in, and I am not the same person I was as an incoming freshman; it’s thanks to everyone here that I can confidentially say that God is steering me to bigger and better things.

Ashlyn Henley

Alumnus 2024

When I handed in my last Bible exam, my teacher looked at me and said that his one regret was that he only had me for one class. He truly cared about his students. His kindness reminded me that I am more than just a six-digit number on a plastic ID card. I am a person who matters to God. I am grateful for my Bible teacher who shows the love of God to his students.

Eden Coile

Alumna ’23

I was homeschooled and used some Abeka curriculum primarily for history. As a result, I got the PCC Update which piqued my interest in the college. I also visited the school twice once for the science and engineering academic summer camp and the other my parents and I came during the summer just to look over the school. I was also very happy when I saw PCC was advertised in the Answers magazine this confirmed that PCC was one of the Young Earth Creationist Colleges.

Ronald Barnett
Alumnus 2022

PCC taught me to research, investigate and write well. These are all skills which I now use almost every single day in my career in Physical Security Management.

Joshua Craft

Alumnus 2001

Since my ministry is children, PCC has allowed me to begin that ministry before I even graduate through many of the opportunities offered: working Extended School Day at Pensacola Christian Academy, serving in children’s ministries for Campus Church, Christian Service, and being able to work for Discover Day Camp. Through these ministries, God has provided many different wonderful examples before me: Ms. Kerr, Mrs. Dosson, Mrs. Lefevers, Ms. Vaughn, Ms. Campbell, Mrs. Whitley . . . and many other fantastic women show the love of Christ daily and show true a heart for children. There are so many that have shown what Christian education is really all about: getting to the hearts of the children God sends our way!

PCC faculty is always pushing me to be the best I can be. With a single email, I can ask teachers for help. Most of them are even willing to meet outside class and office hours. The encouragement I get for each little step I take means so much to me.

Grace Goltz

Current Student

PCC not only taught me what I believe but also why I believe it. My Bible doctrine I learned from PCC. My Bible standards I learned from PCC. My direction in life was given to me by God using PCC as His instrument. I eventually became a missionary evangelist, leading thousands to Christ and planting 58 churches worldwide. The following is a story of how one of these churches was started:


We entered a new village called Watoya, Kenya, with no church. As we got off the bus, we followed a dirt path that quickly turned into mud as the rain came pouring down. We walked 1-1/2 km before we came to the village. We gathered into thatched huts and waited out the rainstorm. When the rain stopped, we walked to the meeting place. Some of the men went ahead of us and hooked up the PA system. They began singing and gathering the people. As the service continued, more and more people came.


When asked to preach, I turned to Proverbs chapter 4 and preached on the heart of man. As the invitation was given, 48 adults and 52 children responded, trusting Christ as their Savior. After the invitation, the choir led the people in singing, but Pastor Maungo and I had to leave quickly to catch a long ride back to the city of Mumias, where our motel room was.


Pastor Robert stayed in the village that night. The next day, he told us what happened after we left the village: The people who received the Lord as their Savior went home and told their family and friends about what had happened to them. One by one, people found their way to Pastor Robert, asking about salvation. By the time the last one had come and gone, 27 more gladly received Christ as their Savior, and Pastor Robert did not get to bed until 3:00 a.m. Some people who got saved that night also returned to Pastor Robert’s house. They came to bring their items of witchcraft to be burned in the fire. They said, ‘Now that we have received the Lord, we shouldn’t have these things in our homes anymore.’


In the coming days, they organized the Gospel Baptist Church of Watoya. Today that church also has a Bible college on the property, graduating many more church-planting pastors every year.”

I originally was turned off by PCC. While in the military and stationed at Ft. Walton beach, I drove by the college one time and made the comment “I would never go to a college like that”. Fast forward two years later while stationed in South Korea, the Lord convicted me of my lifestyle and laid it on my heart to attend a Christian College. Fast forward another three years and I willingly walked on the very campus I said I would never attend. Praise the Lord!

Donald Gauldin

Alumnus 2010

I had been considering a ministerial college, but I wasn’t quite at peace with the idea. After watching the Abeka ad for PCC featured in my English class, I prayed about maybe attending PCC instead. From there the Lord led me here to pursue my passion for studio art!

I was set to go to community college for two years, then to a university to finish my degree. My friend Noah was set to go to PCC in the fall, and I asked him and his mom about the school. They told me about all PCC had to offer: A Christian education surrounded by peers my age with the same beliefs. I came down for college days, telling my mom I probably wouldn’t like it. I was wrong; I loved everything about the school, and wanted to start as soon as possible. I talked with my parents, and prayed about it for months, until God urged me to go.
