“After two years of work experience in teaching and ministry, I felt affirmed in my desire to work in ministry, but I knew I needed more tools to better serve others. The STM offered me the best opportunity to connect my studies in theology to my practical experience and help me grow into my identity as a minister. My classes constantly challenge me to think about the pastoral implications of the readings or discussions. In this way, theology becomes alive, aimed at the service of others. I wanted a place in which I could explore the intersectionality of faith, identity, and social justice and the BC STM is that place.”
