The best part of my short-term mission trip was...

When a friend texts to ask if we can chat, I...

Doing a lot of reading, writing, and research doesn't really intimidate me.

Often, other people...

When I see a sunset, I think...

Ok, we have to ask about the "F" word....have you thought about financing your education?

As a follower of Christ, I...

Ever since I was a child, I...

If I am totally honest about my interest in ministry, I...

I enjoy discussing and thinking about faith and theological issues.

I have a strong support system of people that will encourage me and hold me accountable during my Seminary studies.

If you are disappointed with this result, and still sense God might be calling you to theological education, there are a few things you can do. First, speak to a pastor or leader you trust to discern whether your gifts align with a career in ministry; second, volunteer at your church or seek out opportunities to serve with others to learn if you enjoy the work of ministry; finally, continue to pray and learn – read a few books recommended by your ministry friends or take a class or two to see if biblical and theological study is something you enjoy. Email admissions@westernsem.edu to talk with someone who can help you with the process of discernment.
