When I started my search for a reputable liberal arts school, Grove City College stood apart. The College’s principled convictions, solid academics and uniquely biblical vision for discovering one’s individual calling were important factors in my decision to apply and enroll.

Throughout my life, God has placed within me a strong passion for ministering the gospel and I am thankful that He led me to the Department of Biblical and Religious Studies to pursue this calling. The Department’s passionate and informed faculty possess an incredible knowledge of scripture and are committed teachers.

Even as a sophomore, I have already had an opportunity to read and translate scripture from the original Hebrew texts and delve into significant events in the recent tradition, critical to understanding key issues of the global church today. In addition, the diverse courses ranging from church history to books of the Bible are preparing me well not just for seminary, but for a life of ministry.​
