because of a near death experience. Once,
our founder Craig Stevens went horseback riding.
his words, "Everything was going fine until the horse started bouncing
out of control. I tried with all my might to hang on but was throne
off......Just when things could not possibly get any worse my foot gets caught
in the stirrup. When this happened I fell head first to the ground.
My head continued to bounce harder as the horse did not stop or even slow down.
Just as I was giving up hope and losing consciousness the Wal-Mart manager came
and unplugged it"
that day on, he wanted to teach others how to be good managers.....Well, there's
that....and then there's the money.

STATE OF TENNESSEE, DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN’S SERVICES,
I want to take this opportunity to thank-you for the
outstanding training you conducted on behalf of the Department of Children’s
Services of Anderson County, Tennessee. The staff continues to speak of the many
ideas they received from your presentation.
Now here is the part that a supervisor really appreciates,
staff on their own have taken the lead in implementing your innovative ideas in
addressing the issues they found important. The very issues staff found
important are in tandem with management’s.
Your training offered different ways of looking and thinking
about issues. The manner of your facilitation fostered greater employee
participation in accomplishing both short and long-term goals.
Craig, I appreciate your willingness to travel to our region
and deliver an outstanding presentation. You have contributed greatly to our
unit in East Tennessee and I look forward to working with you in the near
IMPLEMENTATION AND ALIGNMENT MBA/590: I enjoyed your
class tremendously! . . . I remembered so many of the things you
talked about it was uncanny. I think that made it more
interesting for me. You know your subject and stayed on the
subject very well. You also managed to maintain control of the
group, which is an indication of your experience as a teacher. .
. . The team and I agree that we learned more from your class
than any other so far in the MBA program.

Thank you Craig for
making this final class interesting, fun and a great learning
experience. I have also seen a side of you that goes well beyond

class was so rememberable that I can not find the words to
describe it. Thank you for being such a wonderful person,
teacher, and understanding instructor. I would have never
imagined that the last night of class could be such as it was.
I will never forget you and you allowing our class to learn the
information that will forever be with us."

really enjoyed your class, and not just for the laughter! The
required reading was great, the charts you created helped me to
picture what I read, and I felt stretched by your teaching how
to write for a publication. Thanks!

I want to thank you for an informative and memorable experience. The
Principals of Management course through Trevecca Nazarene University was
a learning experience on many levels. It was both a fun and informative
time. I can't think of a better culmination to our MHR program...

Twenty years ago, I set a goal to obtain a bachelor's degree
but ended up getting married a few weeks after I graduated
as a RN from a diploma school of nursing. I started working
full time and before you knew it, I was starting my family.
Time was as precious as gold and school was not an option.
In November 2003, I received a pamphlet in the mail from
Trevecca. I looked over the information and something told
me to check in to it. Well that is exactly what I did and
the next thing you know I was accepted and on my way to
getting a degree.
Being out of school twenty years is a long time! Therefore,
I was extremely anxious about sitting in the classroom
again. However, the Trevecca family made me feel welcomed
and important. The instructors were helpful and Craig
Stevens was wonderful. I could not have made it through the
Systems Management class without his guidance and wittiness.
They say, " Laughter is good for the soul." His jokes kept
the class laughing and made learning fun. The materials
covered in his class were complex at times but he kept our
interest through stories and class participation. He
challenged us in many ways and made us better individuals
and professionals. I could not have done without his
guidance as an instructor.
