douggrahamFor over 45 years, Douglas Graham has been an educator. Initially, he was on the frontlines of elementary school education, first as a teacher, then as principal.

Professor Graham has also served on numerous education committees including the New Brunswick Teachers' Association.

After taking early retirement, God called him to Kingswood University in 2000 to prepare more Christian educators.

“I love Christian School education because it emanates Christ,” says Professor Graham, who serves as chairman of the local Christian school board.

"Like never before our children need someone in the classroom who models Christ's love , provides nurturing, and equips students to face the onslaughts of the enemy."

Professor Graham believes in equipping the next generation of Kingswood graduates to minister to the needs of young, impressionable lives, while nurturing their growth in a holistic fashion.

Professor Graham, who plans on living to be hundred, and his wife Marlene have three children and seven grandchildren. He enjoys hunting with his daughter, playing card games, and just spending time in the Great Outdoors, admiring God's creation.
