Favorite Bible Verse and Why:
Be still and know that I am God. (Psalm 46:10). I have always been someone that moves on to the next challenge just as I finish the proceeding one. I do not take enough time to be silent and observe. My stillness might come on a long walk or a long run, but it is in the tranquility of the stillness that I have my most meaningful conversations with God, our heavenly father.

Before Crown:
Taught at the University of Minnesota

What You Enjoy Most About Teaching at Crown:
My suspicion is that teaching with the undertow of Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior will be my drawing card.

How You Define “Academic Excellence”:
Showing students the capacity for their intelligence, coupled with life experience and wisdom. It is our responsibility to unleash their intellectual ability in conjunction with their Christian World View to impact the world. Additionally academic excellence will be enhanced by being a well read individual, which should be an emphasis in every discipline so anyone can incorporate their expertise within the realm of world events.

What Would Your Students Say About Taking Your Classes:
My classes begin a new process in which the student will be influenced to think very differently. They will become connoisseurs of information. My students will always know both sides of the argument and will discover the art of conversing based on a side yet without alienating the opposition. No matter what I will teach, I will get students to engage at a level of confidence which will enhance their growth.

What Differentiates Your Program From Similar Offerings at Other Colleges:
Building excellence in sport and academics will be a unique attraction for incoming students. The bridging of these two disciplines can bring a unique learning environment similar to what we find in the performing arts.

From a Career Standpoint, What Will Students Be Prepared to Do With a Degree From Your Program:
Sport & Exercise Physiology can launch them into the world of sport performance, as well as end up in the clinical side of diagnostics.

What You Would Say to Parents of Prospective Students About Having Their Son/Daughter at Crown:
I can truly say, that unlike your state schools, who a majority of the professors don’t teach and teaching isn’t their strength, you will have all your instructors have a connection with each student and students will find their advisors and instructors will have are truly vested in the lifetime goals and outcomes.

Testimony:
When you look back on the events in your life, what do you see? For Stacy Ingraham, the past carries a clear trail of God’s fingerprints.

When Stacy was nine years old, she witnessed the brutal murder of her mother, and was coerced by investigators and the FBI into saying her father had committed the crime. Part of the coercion was based on information from authorities, Stacy says.

“They told me my dad was a sick man who needed help, and that if I loved him, I would testify that he had killed my mom,” says Stacy. As a nine-year old, it seemed like the right thing to do — to get help for her dad. So, she said he did it, and he was sentenced to twenty years in prison.

Her mother’s murder and father’s sentencing launched a time of great mistrust in Stacy’s life. At the time of her mom’s death, she was told, “God has taken your mom home.” Looking back, that’s where Stacy first sees evidence of God’s hand.

“God put this hole in my heart when I was told he had taken my mom away,” says Stacy. “But I know now that he protected me. I could have easily chosen anger, drugs, or alcohol, but I didn’t.” Instead, Stacy became an exceptional student and musician.

After high school, Stacy went to the University of Northern Iowa on a music scholarship. She became a runner, which gave her a sense of freedom. “I ran as an escape, to hash out life,” Stacy says.

Running became another source of achievement. As a freshman, she won the 10K at a state intercollegiate championship meet in Iowa. “Freshman don’t usually do that and my team was elated,” Stacy says. Despite the win, she felt empty.

When Stacy returned from the meet, she called an athletic trainer. “Not because I was injured, but because this women had an air about her, ” Stacy says. “It appeared that I had it all, but I felt that I had nothing. I needed the peace that she had.”

Stacy didn’t know it, but the woman brought her Bible with her that night. “Her words were all I needed to hear,” Stacy says. “I accepted Christ that night. I was so primed.” She knew God had been protecting her — from the time her mother was killed to the day she called the trainer. And she knew his protection would continue in the future.

In her fourth year of college, Stacy participated on a relay team that set a world record in a grueling, 24-hour event. They planned to run it again, to shatter their record — but while training for the event, Stacy was hit by a car.

“All I could think about at the time was Isaiah 40:31 — particularly the first line,” Stacy says. (But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength.) Her replacement visited her in the hospital, joking about Stacy injuring herself to get out of the race.

After knee surgery, Stacy watched from the sidelines. “My replacement on the relay had the time of her life being a part of a world record,” Stacy says. In school that fall, although crushed because she couldn’t participate in her fourth year of cross-country running, Stacy continued to travel with the team to provide support.

One cold and rainy day, Stacy opted to stay home and study instead of traveling to a meet. On the way, a truck ran into her team’s van, killing the teammate who had replaced her on the 24-hour relay. “After that, I never questioned my knee injury,” Stacy says. “For some reason, God had spared my life.”

Because of these experiences, Stacy now feels a tremendous passion to share Christ with others. “It is our obligation to deal with life and the circumstances dealt to us. We have a responsibility to overcome adversity, ” Stacy says.

After she graduated, Stacy began a ministry for high school and college students. In addition to Bible study, she would frequently take them out to breakfast to talk about Christ before school. “I had the opportunity to lead many kids to Christ,” Stacy says.

One of these students later became an incredible man of God. In the fall of 2002, at age 35, this committed husband and father of two boys was killed in a car accident with two drag-racing men who were under the influence of cocaine and alcohol.

“The impact of his death was incredible,” Stacy says. Over 1,000 people attended his funeral, where Stacy had the opportunity to talk about his spiritual development. Later, she learned that a high school student had accepted Christ as a result of the messages at the funeral.

“We need to use life events to share Christ with people,” Stacy says. “Our purpose is to fulfill God’s purpose. I’ve had an incredible opportunity to do that.”
