“Tabor provided me with a solid Christian education. The faculty taught me from a strengths- based perspective and showed me how to solve social problems, how to handle crisis intervention and how to deal with the difficult experiences that I encounter. On a personal note, Tabor empowered and strengthened my faith, without which I do not think I could succeed in this field.”
