About Al

Al Carper holds an MBA from the McColl School of Business at Queens University and for over 35 years, has taught in BJU’s School of Business sharing the skills he gained at a Fortune 500 business and later as a banker. In addition to teaching, for over 20 years he served as a business manager in the U.S. Navy’s Supply Corps rising to the rank of Commander before retiring in 2009. While serving as a naval logistician he was recalled to active-duty for two years to play key logistical roles in the Global War on Terror. For the six years following his demobilization, he served as Bob Jones University’s Executive Vice-President and Chief Operations Officer, a role in which he was responsible for the overall operational efficiency of BJU. Having returned to the classroom, he loves teaching and working with his students as they prepare themselves to serve in the “ministry of business.” In addition, Al serves as the Program Coordinator for BJU's Army and Air Force ROTC programs.

Al enjoys spending time with his three children and eight grandchildren. 

In addition to teaching business, Al uses his experience by promoting Christ in several ways: 
He is actively involved with his home church, Hampton Park Baptist Church in Greenville, SC, serves as President of the BJU Scholarship Fund, and serves as a member of the executive board of Frontline Missions International which has as its mission “advancing the Gospel in the world’s difficult places.”
