Deciding to attend Central Christian College of the Bible was one of the greater blessings of my life. My college career has been a bit chaotic, but from the beginning, Central has helped encourage me in my last year and a half of schooling. The administration has helped steer me in the right direction, and I am very excited to be able to graduate in December.

The Christian faith has been a great part of my entire life. My father is a minister, my grandfather is a retired minister, my great aunt is a missionary, several of my uncles are ministers, and my brothers are all ministers as well. My family has been there for me spiritually my entire life, and I definitely would not be who I am today, nor would I have the same passion for serving Christ if it were not for their influence.

Prior to starting at Central, I was on track to graduate from another Bible college in May of 2016. When that school decided to close its doors, Central stepped in, and helped me as well as a few of my other classmates. They were willing to accept my credits, and were willing to allow me to graduate much sooner than the other schools.  I am very thankful for the lower tuition rate I have received from Central in comparison to other schools.

I really enjoyed my first semester of classes. I had taken online classes previously, but they were not as easy to navigate, and I also found that the professors at Central are a lot more engaging and helpful than other schools. I also enjoyed conversing with my fellow classmates during the discussion forums.

During my time at Central, I have been able to serve as an intern with a mission organization called Commission Encounter in Bardstown, Kentucky. Missions has been a great passion of mine for the last several years, and I truly believe that this is the way He wishes for me to serve Him.  Central’s online option has made it easier for me to juggle both my internship and school, as well as another job. I have also been able to take some of the skills and knowledge I have learned in my classes, and apply it to my internship. Overall, this has been a wonderful experience.

After graduating from Central, I already have a job lined up in January as a more permanent staff member at Commission Encounter. I will get to serve in coordinating trips, fundraising, and some promotional church visits.  I am very excited for this opportunity, and can’t wait to start!

I definitely would not be where I am today if it were not for Central stepping in when I needed a lot of direction and guidance. I am very thankful for the staff at Central and their patience and kindness toward me since I became a student last year. I am also very thankful for the low tuition rate, and for the scholarships I have received as well that made attending possible. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for the future!
