My desire is to glorify God through living a life of dependence upon Him while being transformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit; and to participate in God’s redemptive plan through direct personal involvement and through the empowering of others committed to glorifying God. Participating in the training of students to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of people around the globe in a professional manner brings purpose and fulfillment.”

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
