Nate Montgomery (Graduate student)
Elizabeth Branch (Undergraduate English major)
Elizabeth is a senior in CIU’s English department (the best major at CIU) and calls Nashville, TN her home. Although being a student often deprives her of sufficient free time, she enjoys leisurely afternoons that accommodate her hobbies of reading, writing, playing piano, hiking, cooking, or sitting quietly with close friends. She acknowledges that every person is a work in progress, and consequently she loves to exchange developing ideas with others with the mutual intention of growing, seeking, and living well amidst persistent doubt.
One of many favorite quotes:
"You must be content, I say, to be misunderstood for a while. We are all very anxious to be understood, and it is very hard not to be. But there is one thing much more necessary...to understand other people."
-George MacDonald, The Princess and the Goblin
Adam Fleming is a new graduate student and tutor at CIU. Adam received his bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies - Literature and Christian Studies from North Greenville University. Now he is pursuing the similarly long-winded master's degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language/Intercultural Studies. Some of his hobbies include reading in a wingback chair, jogging to upbeat jazz, and eating spaghetti. Recently married, Adam and his wife Camilla hope to one day serve as missionaries in China. For the moment, they are seeking to love, serve, and share Jesus with the community God has placed them in.
