DIRECTOR of RECRUITMENT
ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF RECRUITMENT - VISITORS CENTER
I am a native Lynch"burger", who after a 20-year absence returned home in 2003. I first walked the aisle of the church I grew up in and gave my life to the Lord at the age of 8. While I grew up in a very positive and Christ-honoring home with wonderful parents, I attended Radford University and had, well, let's just say...too much fun outside of class. In my late 20's, I rededicated my life to the Lord and have been walking with Him ever since.
I am one of the few here at Liberty that actually did not attend this great university. I earned a BM in Music Business from Radford University located here in VA. I have the pleasure of being married since 1989 to Diana, who I met in college by the way; we have two children who are so very much like their parents. I come to Liberty from a career in Christian retail, having worked and managed Lifeway Christian Stores in Raleigh, NC, and managed with Family Christian Stores in Danville, VA. The Lord brought us back to Lynchburg in 2003 to become a partner with a brand new store, Mustard Seed Christian Bookstore and Cafe. Mustard Seed was a bookstore and restaurant in one, but unfortunately, the food part of it was a bit of a struggle and the decision was made to close our store after 4 years. In all my years serving God's people in retail, I always tried to instill into my teams this one simple fact: that no matter what happens throughout your day, remember that nothing happens until a customer chooses to shop in our store. Everything revolves around the customer. I bring that very same idea to my position of service here at Liberty, nothing happens until a student makes the decision to attend Liberty University, everything revolves around our students. I look forward to using my life experiences to assist you however the Lord leads. It is an honor to serve you, our prospective student, as you consider Liberty University to further your education. Become a Champion for Christ here at Liberty University!!!
Hello, my name is Terry Falwell and I am the Community Liaison for Liberty University. I have been married to my beautiful wife for over 35 years; I have four wonderful children, along with four grandchildren. I have been working here at Liberty since 1995. I am not only involved with the university here in Lynchburg, VA, but also in the surrounding community as President of the Lynchburg Sports Club and the Fort Hill Lions Club. Some of my hobbies include attending any and all of the Liberty Flames athletic events. I also enjoy being on the Board of Directors for the Lynchburg Hillcats. My favorite things about Liberty University are attending the sporting events and being involved in the lives of those I work with everyday.

CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE COORDINATOR
I am originally from Pomaria, SC, and graduated from Liberty University in the early 1990's. I've seen a lot of changes take place here over the years and look forward to what the Lord has in store for this great place.
While I was in college, I worked as a desk clerk at a local hotel in Lynchburg. Upon graduation, I was offered the opportunity to become a front office manager and later the Director of Sales. My time in the hospitality industry made me really appreciate the opportunity I had to interact every day with people from all over the country, and from around the world.
In 2000, our family relocated to Georgia, then over the course of 9 years, to New Hampshire and on to Michigan, During these years the Lord gave me the opportunity to stay home with our 2 children and homeschool them.
In the fall of 2009, the Lord brought us full circle and moved us back to Lynchburg. Our children now attend Liberty Christian Academy and in a few years plan to follow their parents' footsteps and attend Liberty University.
Working at the Liberty University Visitors Center gives me the amazing privilege of being part of the "handshake" of the university. The Lord is still writing the story of Liberty University and I am blessed to have it be a part of my personal story as well. From the professors to the staff to the student body, the presence of the Lord is felt on this campus. Come by for a visit, a tour, or just a conversation. I look forward to meeting you!
Greetings from Liberty University! My name is Sean Peters and I was born and raised in Ludington, Michigan. My journey to Liberty, like countless others here at the university, involved a lot of faith, prayer, and sacrifice. I graduated from a small high school in 2003 and that following fall, enrolled in a community college to pursue a career as a firefighter/paramedic. After just a year and through a series of events, I abandoned the community college idea and began a career in the commercial/residential construction industry.
In January of 2007, the construction industry began to weaken and fewer projects were getting started, It was then that I began to pray for the Lord's direction in my life.
It was not long after that I understood my life was about to drastically change. In the fall of 2007, I sold most of my possessions and loaded up my 1995 Chevy Lumina to head to Lynchburg, Virginia to pursue a degree from Liberty's School of Religion.
I have been employed at Liberty University since 2008, serving first in Access Control and now in the Visitors Center. I have the unique privilege of coordinating academic appointments between visiting prospective students and Liberty's residential faculty. My prayer is that God would be honored by my work and use it to have an impact on your life.
COORDINATOR OF VISITORS CENTER OPERATIONS
Hello! I grew up in the beautiful Hill City of Lynchburg, in a family of five girls. I attended Lynchburg Christian Academy, now called Liberty Christian Academy, from kindergarten through grade 12. I am honored to be a 1997 Alumna of this wonderful University, where the late Dr. Jerry Falwell instilled the saying, "Training Champions for Christ". It is a privilege to join my alma mater at the Welcome Center, where I am able to serve others in becoming Champions for Christ.
RECRUITMENT EVENT COORDINATOR
The first time I learned about Liberty University was when my Youth Pastor announced that he was taking a group of students from my hometown of Kitty Hawk, NC to an event called College For A Weekend (CFAW) at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Little did I know that my first trip to the campus would change my life forever.
One year later I became a student in the School of Business and got involved with the Office of Student Leadership and served in the position of Prayer Leader, Spiritual Life Director and Resident Assistant.
Through the Office of Student Leadership program, I had many opportunities to host overnight visitors for CFAW and absolutely loved every guest that came through my Residence Hall.
For as long as I can remember, my dream job has been to be an event planner (one day for the White House!). I can honestly say that I have my current "dream job" as Recruitment Event Coordinator. Not only do I have the privilege of doing what I love, planning events like Friendly Friday's and CFAWs, I also get to impact the lives of many students (like myself) that come through CFAW. What an amazing opportunity!
COORDINATOR OF GROUP AND DAILY VISITS
I first learned about Liberty University when I was fifteen years old. My dad received a Liberty Journal in the mail and from it pinned an article by Pastor Johnnie Moore to our refrigerator. The article was about finding God’s will for your life. Little did I know Liberty would be a part of God’s will for my own future!
I grew up on the outskirts of the pretty bayside town of Petoskey, Michigan. Home schooled from first grade through high school graduation, I lived on a small farm with my parents and five younger siblings. My summers were spent on the beach, on the lake, or on horseback! My senior year of high school I enrolled in Liberty University Online to earn dual credit through The Edge program. At age 19, I transferred to Liberty’s residential campus in Virginia and Liberty became an integral part of my life.
After a summer in New Mexico leading a horseback program, I had to go back to Michigan rather than to Liberty. As I worked at a newspaper in Michigan, I continued praying for a return to Liberty. God opened the door in 2012, bringing me back to Virginia to work as an admissions counselor in Liberty’s Resident Admissions department. From there I came to work in the beautiful Hancock Welcome Center as the Coordinator of Group and Daily Visits. If you have a group of 7 or more who wish to see what God is doing at Liberty, please contact me! I would be delighted to coordinate your visit so you can see if Liberty is God’s will for your life, like it was for mine.

I transferred to Liberty University as a sophomore in the fall of 2007. In May 2011, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion. After graduation, I returned to NY to live with my family while I planned my wedding for April 2012. I am married to Devin Quesenberry who works at the IT Help Desk for Liberty University.
Here at the Visitors Center, I serve as the Experience Team Member. You will most likely see me at the front desk as you enter the Hancock Welcome Center.
