Quentin Haase has been a teacher, pastor, youth pastor, missionary, men’s dorm supervisor and Dean Of Men at a Christian college. He’s a Vietnam veteran and has had quite a number different jobs and experiences over the years. He has also lived in and visited a number of countries in the world.
His teaching credentials are just as impressive. Quentin has a Bachelors in History, a Masters in Counseling and a Masters in Religious Education. He also received a Diploma in Advanced Spanish from Javeriana University in Bogota, Colombia.
He taught for several years in Washington and California, and for about 12 years in South America as a missionary in Paraguay, Colombia, and Peru. We were privileged to have him join our Santiam Christian family in 1992.
Quentin has five grown children with varied occupations, interests and pastimes. His youngest three are graduates of Santiam Christian.
Quentin loves the Lord and is so glad that God led him to Santiam Christian. He loves the school, the students, the teachers and staff, and the purposes and goals of Santiam Christian. As he says, “I am so happy to not only teach my subject, but also to be able to be involved spiritually in the lives of everyone here.”
Quentin is a treasure of a man that devotes himself to Bible study, prayer and his church. He loves to keep in contact with relatives and friends and has been known to consistently pray for his students, both current and alumni.
