Seminary

Yesterday at church was the first public announcement of my intent to enroll in Seminary this fall. Many of you already knew, but for those of you who didn't, I plan on starting classes at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary's Houston branch this fall. I will continue to work at my current job and take evening and online classes.Park Place Baptist Church I am really looking forward to starting classes again. There is just something about being in school, something about always learning something new. Yes, I learn things in life and at work, but those experiences are so different from formal education. I plan to pursue a Masters in Divinity. To what end I dare not say. I have no clear direction as far as the ultimate goal in this training, only that I feel I belong there. It will be a long, difficult path for sure, but one with return beyond measure.

Of particular interest in the story... The branch in Houston is at Park Place Baptist Church. Park Place Baptist deeded the buildings to SWBTS in 2002. It was through this church that I accepted Christ back in... '94 I think. It seems only fitting that after 12 years I should return to my beginnings, not to remember the past, but to find my future.

Glad to hear it is offical. I know that the Lord has great things in store for you. Just take it a step at a time. I will be looking forward to some great conversations about what you are learning.
