The architecture faculty aspires to teach sound thinking, practical skills, and rigorous scholarship in the discipline of architecture; and promotes students who: Craft buildings that are dignified, durable and purposeful; Design communities that foster civility; Serve mankind in accord with their professional and Christian vocation; Seek the virtues of joy, beauty, wholeness and moderation in their lifelong pursuit of learning. All this for God's honor and His glory until the risen Christ comes again.

Professor Carscallen has ten years of experience as a full time missionary in The Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda that included teaching, school administration, and construction. This experience provides a strong foundation to administer the program and the mission it espouses. He accepted the position of Dean of the School in 2001.  Since then, the size of the program has increased substantially. Faculty size has increased by 50%, the building has had two temporary trailer studios added, one permanent addition, and a second addition slated for 2016. A plan has been put in place for a $15,500,000 building for the School to be built on the north end of the campus.

Research and application on the design and construction of well-crafted furniture informs the Introduction to Furniture Design and Advanced Furniture Design courses he teaches each year.  Personal and professional projects have included a complete bedroom set, dining room set, and library shelves, as well as the design for the lecture room podium.  In an effort to promote the mission of the School and support the ongoing 15-year relationship with CERENID (a center for street boys located in Lajas, Bolivia), the furniture design students design and construct birdhouses to be publicly auctioned with the proceeds going CERENID.  To date, over $8,000 has been raised for this effort.
