What is your favorite memory of your time at LSTC?

I have many great memories of my time at LSTC. I regard it as a privilege to be a part of this significant historical event, the major relocation, at LSTC. I hold this big shift at LSTC with hopes and high regards. Working with the IT team and attending global conversations at LRWC are some out of those many fond memories I would love to cherish about LSTC.

What was the most meaningful class you took?

Every course I took has contributed in a unique way to my academic journey at LSTC. To name one is a difficult task, however, Theology of James Cone is one such class which has captivated me with James Cone’s revolutionary writings on Black theology. My understanding about intersectionality theology has been further expanded through Trinitarian Imago Dei: Intersectionality in the US and beyond.

How did you feel supported during your seminary journey? Were you the recipient of any major scholarships? What communities or people uplifted you during your studies?

I am incredibly grateful to have received 80% of my tuition covered by LSTC in these two years at LSTC. I also acknowledge the support of the local congregation of my Church denomination in Elmhurst given to me in the academic pursuit. The encouragement of all my teachers and friends at LSTC has been a blessing.

What are your post-graduation plans?

I plan to pursue and acquire higher education in US and then return to India to serve the Lord through my Church, particularly in diocese I belong.

How did LSTC shape you as a future leader of the public church?

In the today’s world, the task of properly understanding and teaching the Bible from diverse perspectives poses a significant difficulty for aspiring church ministers. The learning I had at LSTC facilitates creative thinking and foster innovation. I am confident that this will prove beneficial in my forthcoming endeavors.
