God brought me to Arlington Baptist College. After my youngest daughter passed and my oldest was gone off to college, I prayed about His direction for my life and as soon as I did that, I tuned into PBS. I saw Vickie Bryant being interviewed about the School’s history and legacy.

What in the Worldchanger is Going On?

by Dr. D.L. Moody

If you have been reading much about Arlington Baptist University over the past year or so, you have probably seen the word Worldchanger repeatedly.  I am aware that when you type this word into a document on your computer, a red underline quickly appears as a courtesy of your spell-check.  Though two words are generally used, we decided to coin a new, single word to describe the type of individual ABU seeks to turn out…a Worldchanger!

We are committed to make this more than a mere “brand ...

     Sir Isaac Newton was once quoted as saying, “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” This quote has always meant a great deal to me, because it reminds me that anything I accomplish in life is only by the grace of God and the impact that others have had in my life.

     When I think of the various experiences and factors that have contributed to making me who I am today, the Biblical Counseling degree I gained from Arlington Baptist University ranks high on that list. I came into the degree ...

“Go on an Adventure with God!” These were the words I spoke with conviction and fervor during my graduation speech from Arlington Baptist. As I reflect over my life before, during, and after attending college, I realize that I had been going on adventures with God before even giving the speech.  

You see, high school was hard. Even harder, was knowing that the Lord had called me to follow Him on to the mission field, yet I continually doubted myself. My conversations with God would go something like this:

Me: “I’m not good enough.”

God: “No you are not ...
