What brought you to ABU? /How did you hear about ABU?

The Lord is so kind to me. It is only by His grace that I came to such a great school! As a high school senior, I had no real plans as to what was coming next for me. I was a good student, but I didn’t think I could afford College, so I never had any dreams to go. However, one of my friends from High School found ABU and decided she would come to a Preview weekend. I decided to ...

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 ...
