Colossians 3:16, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom……..with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” I am hoping to accomplish this by working toward an ultimate goal of obtaining my Ed. D.
This degree would help open up doors for me to be able to work in whatever context the Lord calls me to. I would have the opportunity to teach in Christian colleges or universities, public or private schools, serve in local church ministry, or even start/lead/teach in an orphanage overseas. My husband Brian and I both have a heart for children, especially orphans. We are both attending seminary in the hopes of being prepared and equipped for anything that the Lord may call us to in the future. We are confident that He is has called our family to a lifetime of ministry.
My ultimate purpose for obtaining a doctorate of education degree is to bring God glory by fulfilling the Great Commission and to be a good steward of the gifts He has bestowed upon me. I desire to set my students up for success and to encourage them as they grow, whatever the context that may be. It is my mission to provide students with a Christian education by depending on the Holy Spirit, teaching through the lens of Scripture, forming relationships with learners and their families, leading by Christian example, and adapting to student needs and learning styles.
As of today, I have been admitted to the doctoral program at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Obtaining a doctorate of education from this school will help me in the areas of spiritual growth, educational leadership, critical thinking, academic research, discipleship, theology, public speaking and curriculum design. In order to finish Phase 1, we need at least $3,000 before the Fall 2017 semester!
Would you consider partnering with me to achieve my mission of becoming a teacher relying on the Holy Spirit, who desires to set up each individual leaner for academic success while image-bearing Christ and instilling confidence in each student? You can do this by simply praying for me, or you can give financially.
Would you be willing to pray for me? I believe there is power in praying Scripture and these verses were what came to mind in how you can pray for us. Colossians 1:9-12.
If there were to be as many as 150 donors at just $20 each, the first phase of this goal will be accomplished. God bless you for taking the time to read this.
