Aaron Thompson (‘22) / Pastor at Marysville Foursquare Church / Masters in Strategic Leadership

“The most helpful class for me has been “Soul Care 2.0” with President Richey. Her unique combination of academic vision, emotional intelligence, and ability to communicate makes for a strong connection. Her encouragement to say some strategic ‘no’s’ to some very good things in order for us to say ‘yes’ to the MASL and preparation for years of fruitful ministry to come was so vital for me to hear. I also loved that she invited us to write down or make ourselves accountable to one another for specific self-care goals.”

“Residency week has been very busy, very intense, but also an incredible week. I think what stands out the most are two things: the devotional time before class and Professor Duzik. I have been so enriched and blessed by the devotions of the members of my cohort. It was the place to center ourselves before stepping into a busy day and a time to remember the “why” behind us being here. The other thing I have appreciated is Professor Duzik himself. I have come into this residency with no experience in learning or knowing Greek. Professor Duzik has such an incredible way of encouraging and making you feel good about the work you are doing. He builds up his students, and for that, I am so incredibly thankful”.

“One of my favorite aspects of the program was being able to learn how to develop my own research project. I really enjoyed everything that I learned and today, I have a much wider knowledge of leadership development topics which are helping me plan for the future to form my own local leadership”.
