Dr. David Squires

Welcome to SAMC

Our world is full of art and ideas...everywhere we turn we encounter words, music, images. Human beings – created in the image of a Creator God – are fundamentally and amazingly creative. SAMC is a rich and stimulating academic community of people who believe in the power and the wonder of words and ideas, music and images, story and relationship.
