With the help of the seminar and the GBHEM LEaD Hub, our students and teachers went on the 17th-20th. March in Hungary, visiting John Wesley Theological College.
My parents weren't Christians but my father had an interest in church architecture and organ music. Due to this interest, when I was 3 years old, we went to Tartu St. Peter's Church.
I grew up in a family where, for my parents, Christianity was part of culture. We had an icon in the corner of my father's childhood home in Setomaa. The baptism of children and confirmation were expected.
I am American, born in Brooklyn NY, and my family heritage is from Puerto Rico. I was raised in a Christian home.
I come from a little congregation in Lviv, Ukraine, where I have been serving for the past 5 years in an interdenominational Christian youth organization «Youth to Jesus».
Coming to the seminary was a long process for me. I can say that it was a clear call from God.
For several years I had been thinking about going to university, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and where.
I came to study in order to gain more knowledge that I needed for my daily work as a pastor.
