Tania Edwards - Director of Admissions

As a Director of Admissions, I have the opportunity to help positively impact the lives of aspiring students and their communities. On a daily basis, I leverage my experience by constructing and leading the admissions team to build a prospective student database to attract, enroll and set the stage for the retention of students. Through leadership, I oversee the recruitment process in finding prospective students who have a passion to serve and want to invest in their future while following their God-given purpose here on earth.

Why Calvary

Calvary University is unlike any educational institution in great ways! Each day, I feel a unique level of excitement coming to work. I enjoy being surrounded by individuals who are passionate to serve. I have 12 years of experience in college admissions leadership, over 18 years of Salvation and roughly 4 years of Christian ministry leadership (alongside my husband). The reason I’m so excited to be at Calvary is because I’m able to bring all these things with me to work, in an environment that aligns with my professional and spiritual ambitions. In addition, my convictions and His confirmation has convinced me that Calvary University is the place to be.

1 Corinthians 1:30–“It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God–that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”

Why Calvary

My children started Calvary while still in high school as Early College students. I was impressed with the strong biblical foundation, high academic standards and the friendly atmosphere. I’ve been delighted to see my kids grow as believers and as students while at Calvary.  Calvary University has a rich history and a bright future. Calvary is still the school where Charles C. Ryrie taught, where the Bible is a required text for all classes and where our Statement of Faith is considered truth and not merely a guideline. Yet Calvary is also a place where students can wear jeans to class if they want, where grabbing a latte in the university’s coffee cafe is possible and where game nights, school socials, picnics, bowling nights and the spring formal are all part of the fun.

Favorite Verse

Philippians 4:4-9 — Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Ann Rogers - Admissions Secretary

As the Admissions Office Assistant, I give comprehensive clerical support to the Admissions Counselors and the Director of Admissions, keeping the department functioning efficiently and harmoniously while accomplishing the assignments of the Director.

Why Calvary

My husband, Ken, felt God’s calling to be better equipped to counsel men and women on a rescue mission in North Carolina.  He began searching for a college that offered a degree in nouthetic counseling. Calvary was the only Christian university that had this major along with a doctrinally solid statement of faith. I have served alongside him, growing in my faith because of Calvary University and my ministry here.  Calvary “prepares Christians to live and serve in the church and the world according to a biblical worldview.”

Favorite Verse

Proverbs 3:5,6–“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.”

Tim Willis-Admissions Counselor

As an admissions counselor, it is great to serve alongside with the amazing faculty and staff working to educate students with a biblical focus. Having moved 1,000 miles from the state of Maryland to come to Calvary, I am excited for students coming from both near and far to attend college here. I look forward to discussing with students their future plans and how studying at Calvary can train them to have a biblical worldview to serve Christ and the world in their professional field or ministry.

Why Calvary

Having teachers that personally invest in students’ lives and where the Bible is regarded as absolute truth.

Favorite Verse

2 Timothy 3:16-17

 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. [NKJV]
