College has opened up a whole new world of friendships and exposed me to a wider variety of culture than I had previously experienced.
What are your current career goals?
I want to continue education and earn my master’s degree, followed by my PhD. I want to eventually pastor a church and teach as a professor in a seminary.
Who or what influenced you to attend your college?
My biggest influence was my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, whose glory I am passionate for. My youth pastor, Troy Derenberger, also influenced me to go to ABC.
What is your ultimate goal for the future?
My ultimate goal is to achieve a Ph.D. in my field of studies and to serve God through pastoral ministry at a local church; I want this service to be in tandem with teaching at a seminary.
