I was reviewing how the Lord helped me pursue my educational goals and was mindful of the way the
Lord used the off-campus Th.M. program early in my pastoral career.  At the time, I was working in the
clinical laboratory on the 11-7 a.m. shift so I could minister on Sunday mornings and oversee evening
ministry meetings. International Seminary afforded me the opportunity to prepare for ministry, get a good
theological foundation focused on the Bible alone, and continue to support my family.  Thanks again for
an educational experience that has been ongoing now for over 30 years.
