Heath Adamson

Master of Organizational Leadership

“For less than the price of a car, a vehicle like a Master of Organizational Leadership can take you places a car can’t.  It’s certainly worth the investment.”

“Intellectual capital is more valuable than money in the bank these days.  The economy is unstable, but the caliber of leadership doesn’t have to be.”


Heath Adamson is National Youth Director and Senior Director of Ministry & Business for the Assemblies of God.

Stephanie Walters

Master of Education in Educational Leadership

“I was teaching before I began my master’s degree.  As soon as I graduated in May, I was actually hired to become an assistant principal.  I got to move positions as a result of my degree, and it was extremely helpful in preparing me for what was next.”

“I liked that the professors all had practical experience either pretty recently or even currently.  Some of them are superintendents or principals in the area. I felt like because they were in the profession they were a great resource to ask specific questions.”


Stephanie Walters is Assistant Principal at Willard (Mo.) Middle School.

Bryan Chambers

Master of Organizational Leadership

“I love the fact that Evangel made it clear that they wanted me to be a part of their program.  They would work with me to find a way to make sure that that took place. I didn’t want a degree factory where someone said, ‘Here’s your degree.’  For me it was more about the experience and the training.”

“The cohort model has been perfect. I’ve made some great friends and we’ve gone through this journey together, and you really experience and learn a lot from others’ experiences that are unique to your own.”


Bryan Chambers is the Advancement Representative for Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.

Joel Brown

Master of Education in Secondary Teaching

“I chose Evangel’s Graduate Studies program because the Master of Education in Secondary Teaching perfectly fit my goal of becoming a certified teacher. It also set me ahead by having a master’s degree at the start of my teaching career.”

“My degree has allowed me to start a career in something I am passionate about. I learned lessons about being a professional in the work place, but I also have learned lessons about being a Christian in the workplace.”


Joel Brown is a teacher and coach at Kickapoo High School in Springfield, Missouri.

Shawn Hardiman

Master of Arts in Teaching

“The relationships between the faculty and the students are what truly separates Evangel from every place else. The professors sincerely care about each student’s academics, as well as their spiritual walk with Christ. They are always available and encourage questions from their students.”

“I just accepted a teaching position in a private Christian school which is consistently toward the top in academics. I honestly feel confident that I am prepared and ready to teach our future leaders in an environment that is safe, fun and challenging.”


Shawn Hardiman is a teacher and coach at Faith Christian Academy in Orlando, Florida.

Brady Thompson

Master of Science in School Counseling

“No other school counseling program in my search focused on the faith of the professional school counselor and how this impacts his/her role. Having this worldview perspective at Evangel made my choice to attend an obvious one.”

“What I enjoyed most in Evangel’s school counseling program was the mentorship from the professors and staff I had during my time. Their guidance, support and help navigating spiritual and practical issues truly empowered me and instilled in me the foundational skills for this career.”
