My Experience:

Ethan Bunce, M.Div. Student

I have been at Central since the spring of 2014.  I can honestly say these past three and a half years have been absolutely incredible.  From meeting with professors, to building relationships with classmates, to pestering our librarians with questions, I have loved every minute of being at Central.  Every semester, or trimester, I am pushed and challenged to think in new ways about the divine.  I have been learning to think in ways that go far beyond just an academic experience.  What I have been learning has been impacting the way that I live each day.  I am so thankful for my time at Central and cannot recommend it enough.
