“My desires and hopes for working with the CARES team are consistent with CARES’ ministry objectives; to connect and care. I developed many connections with fellow seminarians, as well as faculty and staff, during my time at ESCM and Palmer. These connections not only provided opportunities for learning and theological engagement but also for caring through listening, sharing in common purpose, and participating in mutual intercessory prayer. My desires and hopes are to further develop and/or rekindle those relationships, as well as to build new relationships with current seminarians and the ESCM/Palmer alumni at large, and to care through encouragement and spiritual support."
