Take advantage of these valuable training opportunities!

For graduating seniors!!! Recently you received an e-mail from Dr. Pettit asking you to submit graduation testimonies by 5 p.m. on April 4. Please take a few moments to reflect on what God has done and put it in a written form that can be a blessing to God’s people and a testimony to the unsaved who will hear of the works of God through your words. We know you are very busy, but it will be time well spent to ponder on God’s goodness to you and then to share it with others for His glory.

We hope you had a wonderful spring break and came back ready to tackle these last few weeks of the semester! Please let us know if we can be of any help to you!
