For over fifteen years I have been doing some type of ministry with youth. About five years ago, I came to the realization that I needed to be better trained and better equipped to bring the truth of God’s Word to these young people. At that time, I felt the call to full-time ministry and fortunately for me, Lutheran Brethren Seminary was right here in my home town.
During my time at Seminary, I have lost count of the number of times that I have sat under the teaching of one of my professors and thought, “I wish I had learned this when I was sixteen.” Now, I feel that I have received the tools and knowledge with which to serve the young people and families at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, as well as the body of Christ in general. I have also learned that we never truly finish learning and growing in the riches of God’s grace.
