“I had wanted to go back to school for a number of years to finish my degree. Really, the degree would be secondary to the actual learning and purposeful study that would combine the course work with faith and God’s word. God planted a seed in my heart to learn and help others do the same. I was blessed in a big way to be able to get that and much more through my studies in the Christian Ministries and Leadership Degree. Is there a more important direction to lead others than toward Christ? The walk on graduation day will be a continuation of the walk I began two years ago with the APS staff at San Diego Christian College. Thank you for believing in me and supporting others like me. You are equipping us to go into the world and lead.”
