I put off going to seminary for years because I couldn't afford it, didn't think I could retain information and just didn't feel as though I could walk away from life and ministry for three years. Pastor Tippins encouraged me to take course work under the mentoring model of learning and before I knew it I was on my way to being a full-time seminary student. With one year left, I am thankful I invested in my education and most thankful that the Lord allowed me to connect to this ministry, GraceTruth Church and Grace School.
