New BCF Business Professor M.J. Albin.

The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville, Fla. announced an addition to the business concentration in the Leadership and Christian Education degree when M.J. Albin joined the faculty in January. Albin comes to BCF with over 27 years of teaching experience as well as an impressive vocational background.

The son of a shipyard worker, Albin was born in New Orleans, but claims Jackson County, Mississippi, the county seat, Pascagoula, as his hometown. He and his wife, Edith, have one son, Marc, who lives in Austin, Texas, and one daughter, Molly, who lives in Ft. Walton, Fla.

Albin retired after 22 years of teaching at the University of Southern Mississippi with two grandsons enticed him and his wife to move to Florida. They reside in Ft. Walton, but spend three days per week in Florida's Jackson County teaching at BCF.

Albin earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and a Master of Business Administration degree from Mississippi State University. He holds a Ph.D. in Accounting from the University of Houston and is also a Certified Public Accountant. While studying at the University of Houston, Albin taught some upper level courses and worked with an accounting firm.

From there, Albin went on to teach at the University of South Alabama for two years, followed by three years at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga before transferring to Southern Miss. He enjoyed a year and a half of retirement before accepting the position at BCF. "I really think what is being done here is worthwhile," stated Albin. "The mission of this college is excellent. We need to put more people in the workforce who have Christian morals, ethics, and values. I am very pleased with the students I have and hope they will serve as ambassadors to bring other students here so we can develop the business program."

During the Spring Semester, Albin is teaching three business classes found in the Bachelor of Arts in Leadership and Christian Education degree: Accounting, Economics, and Business Law and Ethics.
