"Piedmont is distinguished among the schools of my 'conhecimento' as the most evangelistic minded. Their passion for reaching the lost of this world for Jesus Christ begins with their President, Dr. Petitt, as a natural outflowing of being a former missionary. It carries on through the entire staff, and is contagiously evident amongst their student body."
-Dan Anderson, Executive Director of Brazil Gospel Fellowship Mission
