For the last fifteen years I have served as an active duty Chaplain assistant in the United States Army. During that time I was responsible for providing central office administrative support by managing, and distributing correspondence, messages, forms and record keeping. I have Coordinated with organizations and agencies and acted as a liaison to augment Chaplain Programs and functions. I have conducted peer-to-peer counseling in the areas of grief management, suicide prevention, and organizational morale. Throughout my time in the Army I also learned such skills as conflict resolution, critical thinking and time management. I believe that these skills will be a great asset to achieving my goals and completing my degree at Colorado Christian University. The Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies degree program will allow me
I conducted an interview with Ms. Jamila Corria on her duties as an academic achievement program advisor at the University of Maryland. The purpose of this interview was to gain clarity and understanding in what truly goes in to counseling others on making life choices. While also analyzing communication challenges she has faced overall through her current career and techniques to deal with those challenges. While conducting the interview I monitored various different verbal and non-verbal signals throughout the interview. The reason I choose Ms. Jamila is because as a student who is currently pursuing a degree in Sociology it is important to learn about the different career paths that can be chosen with this major. Sociology is a broad subject and can be pursued through many different paths. I have yet to decide on exactly which path to choose so by conducting this interview it allows me to see one option. Counseling is a career I have often thought of pursing but have not quite decided on.
I plan to carry the torch his hard work and dedication lit many years ago. My aspiration is to obtain a B.A. in Mass Communications and Non-Profit Management. This accomplishment will better my chances to achieve what I believe is my God-given purpose: to work with and encourage the academic and personal achievements of underserved youths my community. There is a need to continually educate and motivate my community, and like William Hooper Councill, I have an internal persistence for success that will not stop until needs are met and goals are

Daniel says that she has seen many who are involved in teaching and providing care through the church go on to be teachers, counselors, and administrators for various youth programs. Mrs. Daniel says, “the church opens doors for people to get involved with kids and shows them the impact that one person can make in a child’s life.” She became interested in working with children in this very way. Mrs. Daniel began to volunteer at her church, which later led to a part-time job. While working part-time, she continued her education and gained more experience that eventually led her to become the Director of Children’s Ministry. In order to prepare for entering this field, Mrs. Daniel suggest that, while it is not required, a person should have a college degree that prepares them for working with families and children and that they stay up to date on trends and issues in the church as well as in the community. She also says that if one plans to work in a church environment, they should have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Mrs. Daniel describes working in this kind of environment as a “calling.” She does not think that this is a field for everyone, “it takes a special kind of person to put the needs of children and the community in front of their own” says Mrs.
After graduation, I committed myself to learning new things and more importantly to try things that intimidated and frightened me. While doing so, I searched for and found a way to make a change in the lives of those who needed help the most. I became a career advisor for one of Washington D.C’s largest workforce development projects. I was tasked with the responsibility of teaching DC’s welfare population the essential skills needed to progress in life, and succeed in the workforce. Having overcame being a learning disabled student, and traumatic brain injury I was
I am currently a sophomore, studying nonprofit administration here at Johnson University, and I am so excited for how God is going to use me through my studies. Nonprofit ministries have always been close to my heart because I grew up at one. My parents have managed a Christian camp for 28 years, and camp is the only place I have ever called home. My experience with camp is what prompted me to come to Johnson for the nonprofit program, and I am incredibly thankful this is where God led me.
The lessons I’ve received from transitioning through the church as a child, youth, and adult member have taught me a number of lessons; patience, reverence, and empathy are all traits I’ve strengthened, and they have undoubtably helped me through my high school career. Taught how to ask thoughtful questions, I’m unashamed of my curiosity. Our faith is not always one of direct answers— even our most devoted
After carefully assessing my past training, experiences, interest, and goals, I have decided to continue my studies and pursue a Master’s in Business Administration. In high school, I was given the opportunity to duel-enroll in a trade school to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and join an association known as Heath Occupation Students of America (HOSA). As a member of HOSA, I was privileged to represent my school as a treasurer on the student board of trustees. This gave me small insight into the business world. My high school experience and belief in Christ is what drives my passion to help, care, and love other as Christ first loves me (John 13:34).
In this week’s lecture Justin Lee came to speak to speak to the class on Careers in Social Work. He led the lecture by discussing his career choices and pathway in which spoke a lot about his academic’s. Justin received his PhD at a college in Richmond, VA and when he was eighteen years old he traveled to Guatemala for academic study. In Guatemala Justin taught classes and visited orphanages where children where. As he grew older after obtaining a PhD he decided to teach classes at Barton College in Wilson, NC for undergraduate students. In his earlier years before the PhD his career wasn’t quite what he expected today. He told the class that he choose to study Sociology because the professor teaching it at the time was really good.

During my time at the drop-in center I had the opportunity to be the key-note speaker for numerous churches at various youth nights and numerous youth retreats. I was also asked to represent the drop-in center at many of the churches in Winkler by giving a mission update/sermon on many of the church’s Sunday morning services throughout my tenure. In 2011, I was asked to give the message at our community’s annual summer festival where all the churches gather for a joint Sunday morning service (unsolicited, someone so was kind to video tape it and provide me with a copy).
As I began studying here at Seattle University, I was aware of my career goals, yet I did not know the academic path that would lead me to them. My career goals were not focused towards a specific discipline, as all I intended to pursue was a career that would contribute to the improvement of my native Hawaiian community. As the school year progressed, I joined student organizations such as hall council and gained leadership positions. In hall council, we were responsible for addressing the needs and desires of our fellow student residents in order to unify our dorm hall community. This experience allowed me to realize that I enjoy fulfilling the needs of others and contributing to the community. Being a part of hall council also reminded me
The Pilgrim Galilee Christian Church Praise Team just finished singing the church happy now it’s time for the announcements. Curtis Bracy, the announcement clerk stepped up to the podium and begins the announcements. I was thinking to myself, I should write the announcements so I will not be clueless when another member what day is a particular event on. Curtis Bracy said the words SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS NEEDED FOR ADULT CLASS, I sat up straight it was like music to my ears. I know what I can do to serve in my church I can be a Sunday School Teacher. He announced members who are interested please speak with the Sunday School Superintendent after morning worship service. I was excited I was going to be a Sunday School Teacher, how hard could it be? I was a member of Toastmaster and I spoke at different functions at different occasions. I already study faithfully and come to Sunday School on a regular basis. I love study the word of God so teaching a Sunday School should not be a problem that’s what I thought.
The author successfully addresses all points of the SOAPS in his first paragraph. The speaker - the Catholic Archbishop addresses his Congregation on the ideas of Islamic sympathy which is completely unrealistic to a Catholic’s belief. The congregation is the audience of the paper and the subject is on the faith of Islam and how it compares to the Christian faith. It’s somewhat blasphemous though which is the point of the understatements and faux statements the Archbishop makes.
