I started with Central Baptist Theological Seminary in 2010 as a student in the MDiv program. I wasn’t sure then and I am still not sure now what God has planned for me. I have been transitioning from a career in science to a calling in ministry and the experiences, classes and personal relationships I have been a part of with CBTS have helped me in my Camping Ministry with ABC of WI as well as my work in my church as CE Director. I also commute an hour and a half one way to classes each weekend and I have been the recipient of some wonderful hospitality from fellow students. We truly are a community. I am excited to see what is in store and I know I have a great support team!
After finishing my study at CBTS, I want to join the Business as Mission Agency to help those who are marginalized and poor to get appropriate jobs and become rehabilitated. I have come to realize what God wants from us in worship. If Jesus is the same as the marginalized and poor, then isn’t serving and loving them the same as serving and loving Jesus? I believe that the genuine revival of worship will begin when we serve and love the marginalized and poor – even as Jesus did for us. “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me” (Mt 25:40).
