I chose St. Andrew's because of the emphasis on the integration of our theological studies with practical ministry experience and community involvement.
St. Andrew's blessed my life with social struggles and deep faith.
St. Andrew's prepared me
for a lifetime of ministry
and congregational service.
I grew in confidence over time, due in large part to the support of teachers, family and friends and the tenacious presence of the Spirit.
I am grateful for what I have experienced and learned from
St. Andrew’s College including
a strong sense of community.
