Master of Divinity

What is your favorite memory of your time at LSTC?

Sitting around a bonfire and enjoying the great community we have at LSTC.

What was the most meaningful class you took?

I don’t have one class which was outstanding for me. It was more the combination of different classes.

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 thankful for the scholarship I got. Without this scholarship I would not have been able to graduate. The scholarship was an important piece on the way of my call. My Ministry in Context and internship congregation Griffith Lutheran Church (Indiana) was also an amazing support, I want to name here.

What are your post-graduation plans?

As my friends know, I love to be in nature. So, I hope for a first call in a more rural area with a lot of beautiful nature around me.

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

LSTC shaped me a lot and showed me another side of ministry. I think the focus of public church opened my view for things I didn’t see before. I am grateful and thankful for my time at LSTC.
