Repentance for Academic Overstatement

by Dale Partridge

My Statement of Public Repentance

I, Dale Partridge, repent for using misleading language regarding my education credentials that were deceptive and wrong. While I never stated I had a degree, I repent for deceiving people that my credentials were greater than they were. This was an untruthful and sinful way to operate as a Christian. I repent for deflecting any blame that I should have owned immediately, and I repent for justifying any deception or dishonesty. It grieves me to think I have sinned against the Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for my transgressions on the cross. As a result, I have committed to greater vigilance and integrity in my online communication. My wife, staff, Board of Directors, and several members of our church have been aware of these discussions from the start. I hope you all can forgive me.
