“I arrived at the point in my career where I asked myself, 'What would I like to do with the rest of my life?' The answer was unequivocally 'to serve.' I wanted to deepen my understanding of theology and ministry, and to acquire the skills I needed to minister. I decided to enroll at BC because I felt that my faith life would be best served at an institution that is also a believer. It is an absolute joy to study theology among fellow believers. We learn in an atmosphere marked by collaboration and community strengthened by an abiding love of God.”
