"I have grown so much in my knowledge and experience of God, I've been stretched in my discipleship and taught ways to practically engage my faith with the world around us. I am most excited by how Emmanuel helps us look towards the future in leadership, missions, and the church by evaluating how we can serve God as we move forward."
