Being at a school like UNW has allowed me to dive right into my major. For example, I started studying Hebrew, the language of the Old Testament, during my freshman year. I have also been given the opportunity to work with Dr. Seevers, an Old Testament professor, on a joint research project studying ancient Israelite religious practices as well as potentially participate in an archaeological dig in Israel next summer. My experience so far has pushed me to grow intellectually and spiritually while learning from excellent professors who truly care about their students.

As a ministry major, I hope to be an influence in someone’s life through sharing Jesus Christ by taking what I learn and sharing it with them. The classes that I’m taking are opening my mind and eyes to know and learn a lot of things that I’ve never thought ministry could include.
I am grateful for the foundation laid by the Bible professors at Northwestern. God gave me a clear sense of a call to vocational ministry. Part of this came through my time at Northwestern and in seminary, but this primarily has come through my time as a member of a local church. God has used and continues to use his people to affirm the ways they see God's grace in my life. In addition, the elders of my local church have affirmed a call to vocational ministry and continue to walk through life with me as I pursue this call.
I enjoy doing ministry. I love getting off campus and using what I am learning in the classroom. It has really defined my faith and allowed me to realize why I believe what I do. After graduation, I would love to work with a nonprofit that reaches out to youth.
