“One of the things I appreciate most about my time in the Bible department is the relationship I had with professors. They had been in vocational ministry and were able to help me through the process of discerning my calling in ministry. They helped me see what it looked like to work in ministry and shape my own ideas and vision for my future. Professors taught me how to study Scripture, giving their thoughts on a topic while teaching me how to think through it, study, and research it for myself. I still go back to some of my class notes for reference in my career and personal life. Professors’ time investment, resources, and teachings continue to be beneficial in my career.
