My favorite things about Bethel Seminary

As a current M.A. in Transformational Leadership student, I love the diversity of viewpoints that I encounter at Bethel. My classmates and professors come from different denominations and walks of life, but we are brought together by an education that is rooted in God's Word - and a desire to use that education to change the world. The past couple years in seminary have been the most formative, challenging, and rewarding years of my adult life - and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Before working at Bethel

I have been in ministry since 2009, with experience varying from bi-vocational ministry at a small church plant to leading and training leaders at a megachurch. Most recently I served at Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, MN, working with the young adults and small groups ministries. I also have experience as a learning and development specialist in the corporate sector.
