“I love what God has done to me, and through me, while I was here as a student. I’m grateful for the chance to give back for all God has given me through the Seminary.”
“Preaching is one of the most important things we do as pastors because it’s one of the last places in our society where people will actually listen, perhaps to things they may not agree with.”
