Drs. Brian Fikkert and Russell Mask’s book From Dependence to Dignity won an award of merit in the missions/global church category of Christianity Today’s 2016 book awards.

"I love the holistic approach of community development. Although I am only a few classes into the major, it is already transforming my view on life. I also have really enjoyed being taught by Dr. Fikkert and Professor Corbett. They are SO knowledgeable in the field of community development and their passion is contagious."
 - Brittany Stout '18

Professor Corbett describes the complex field of community development, and discusses Covenant’s community development major.

"Corbett, Fikkert, Mask, and Wescher. While these professors are not the only reason I am at Covenant, they are a large part of it. When I heard them speak or had conversations with them before I was a student here, I knew that these were people that I wanted to learn from and be like. They love what they teach and their passion is contagious."

Evan Weir '15 discusses the powerful influence of professors like Dr. Lance Wescher, associate professor of economics, who take the time to care for students both in, and outside of, the classroom.
