These last two years have been some very long and very hard and very tiring years. But on Saturday it all came to a great end. I officially walked across the stage at Fuller Theological Seminary’s largest graduation in history, and I received my graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.

What am I going to do now? Well, I will continue to work at my current job as the college pastor at this point. But one of my dreams is to be able to integrate my Master of Divinity and Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy, in my work as a college pastor. It had become clear to me after several years in college ministry that I was no longer equipped to handle the many issues that were arising, issues that required special training in some areas.

So for now, I will enjoy being a graduate and I’m pretty sure that I don’t want to pursue anymore degrees for the rest of my life. This should be a fun summer of preparing for the 2007-2008 college year, and a really great summer as my wife and I await for the arrival of our first child in July.
