How did you learn about Central?

A camp team from Central came to a week of camp that I was at before my sophomore year of high school. From the first time I heard about the school, I knew I wanted to come here.

Why did you choose Central?

I felt called to this school. There was something about the small community atmosphere that seemed so intriguing. I knew that Central would be a place that I would feel at home, but still be pushed out of my comfort zone to grow closer to Christ and fellow Christians.

Do you have a favorite class?  Why?

One of the last things Jesus said before leaving this Earth was “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” Discipleship is obviously an integral piece of the Christian life, whether it’s Jesus disciplining us and helping us grow in our faith, or us helping others grow in their faith. The Christian Discipleship class here at Central is just so captivating because it’s showing us what it really looks like to be dedicated disciples of Christ, and teaching us practical and effective lessons about discipleship to put to use in ministry.

Tell us about your family.

I have an older brother, Mason, and two younger sisters: Emma and Maryn.  My parents have both spent many years of their careers in the educational field: my dad, specifically in Agriculture, and my mom, specifically in English.

Are you currently involved with a ministry?

I will be serving on the youth team at Burnside Christian Church in Burnside, Illinois. This is the church in which a majority of my spiritual growth took place, thanks to the guidance in my faith that I received from several role models that serve or have served there. I’m excited to be on the other side of that now, and be that role model to someone else; helping them to grow closer to God, and find that Jesus is the only role model they will ever need.

Any other comments you would like to make?

I know that “When you’re here, you’re family” is Olive Garden’s slogan, but I think the same could be said about Central! You should check us out if you haven’t already!

Lastly, I want to thank anyone who supports this school. You’ve made it possible for a few hundred students from all over the country, who feel called to ministry, to come together to be trained in God’s Word and well equipped for whatever and wherever God leads us to. Thank you!

Your generous gifts help us provide the generous scholarships for students like Grant.  When you support our ministry, you will help us train more servant-leaders for the church.
