His desire to serve as Military Chaplain in the US Army has brought him to BUSTh and the RCT program.
“The RCT program is equipping me with the tools that I need to provide assistance to those in need in the military while encouraging growth in awareness of areas such as conflict resolution, forgiveness, and tolerance. The dynamic nature of the program, the uniqueness of the individuals enrolled, the fellowship in the program, and the dedication of the instructors makes for a fertile soil for growth.”
