About Our People

Mark McMinn (PsyD) recently released a book, The Science of Virtue: Why Positive Psychology Matters to the Church, through Brazos Press. In the words of reviewer Steven J. Sandage of Boston University, the book “places the best of contemporary positive psychology research in fruitful dialogue with ancient Christian wisdom.”

John Spencer (Education) and colleague A.J. Juliani cowrote a book this summer, Empower: What Happens When Students Own Their Learning (IMpress). In it, the authors provide teachers, coaches and administrators with a roadmap that will inspire innovation, authentic learning experiences, and practical ways to empower students to pursue their passions while in school. At the peak of its popularity, the book reached the top-200 list in sales on Amazon.

Jenny Elsey (Spiritual and Intercultural Life) and Beronica Salazar (Counseling) applied for and attended the CCCU Multi-Ethnic Leadership Development Institute in June. They are part of a year-long leadership development program that includes shadowing a leader at another CCCU institution. Jenny will shadow President Michael LaRoy at Calvin College and Beronica will shadow Dr. Rukshan Fernando, an associate dean at Azusa Pacific.
