I have a strong desire to attend a Spirit-led Christian college. Most Christian colleges seem to be Christian in name only, but I want to be part of a close-knit community of believers. I do not intend to put my faith on a shelf for four years while I pursue my education. An Assembly of God education will allow me to fully pursue my education, while I continue passionately growing my faith.
I am interested in the sciences, particularly biology and medicine. A solid biology education from a Christian perspective will provide the foundation I need to serve others in a medical field. As many are trying to force God out of the sciences, the world needs Christian scientists, doctors, and medical specialists more than ever. the modern science community would suggest that God has no place in the sciences; I strongly disagree. God has everything to do with the sciences. I think we can learn something from the Creator of all things. During an Evangel University campus visit last summer, Dr. Tenneson encouraged me to keep my heart open to God's call as I pursue my education and career. This approach is exactly the way I want to pursue my education, career, ministry and life.
I know my education along with my continued spiritual growth will prepare me to influence the world through science and medicine - and always as an ambassador of The One who sent me. My goals in life are simple: love God, love people, and make a difference. These goals will most certainly be obtained with an Assembly of God education.
