Oral Roberts University, A new chapter in my Life
I am currently majoring in Church Ministries via the Distance Learning Program in, which I have both The Old and New Testaments, The History of Christianity about the various theologians from the first- century to 21st century, including both their positive and negative effects on Christianity, I have also studied both exegesis and hermenuetics in order to be able to know what the original authors of the books of The Bible intended for their writings that were inspired by the Holy spirit to not only mean for their original readers, but what they intended the scriptures to be understood by their readers in the 21st century,. I have also studied Seminar in Theological Research, Pastoral Ministry Skills, and also how to plan and grow churches from the ground up. I'm currently studying, psychology, communications, and sociology in order to help congregation members to overcome spiritual, mental, and physical challenges in their lives. I am 42 years old and have been out of school since I graduated in 1988. This is a very exciting and exhilarating time in my life, because I am going to be majoring in Christian Ministries and Theology, so that I can be a servant of Jesus Christ. All that I want to do with the rest of my life is to serve others and to spread the uncompressed gospel of Jesus Christ. Even though all I am paralyzed from the neck down I have the faith that I will be able to not only graduate, but to be able to graduate at the top of my class.
