Dr. McAlack's deep passion for Jesus and for teenagers to know Him comes through very strongly here. I appreciate his words, as a former student of Cairn U I got to sit in a classroom listening to him, and how the University is developing and keeping up with current trends, such as utilizing podcasts. I am going to pass this along to my youth pastor friends as well. Thanks Matt and Cairn U!
