“My ministry both on the field and developing leaders surfaced the need for solid theological and biblical input. Being able complete my Master of Divinity at RTS while serving in Cru was a fantastic opportunity. It was refreshing to take courses at RTS which desires to work with the whole body of Christ, including Cru. I was able to take the knowledge and principles I gleaned from incredible professors and quickly apply them in my ministry, which continues to influence the way I lead today!”
