Lindsay Brothers has a strong sense of God’s calling in her life. “As a teenager, I felt that God was calling me into music ministry, which is something I have pursued and participated in since that time. It slowly evolved into a desire to do music ‘ministry’, aka ‘education’ in a school system, as well.” She is currently a senior majoring in music education.
When first looking at colleges, Lindsay looked at Geneva and liked what she saw. She also had a family member who attended Geneva. “I saw that Geneva was a tight-knit community, and I was really drawn to that. People here were genuinely kind to me and each other.” With much prayer behind the decision, Lindsay enrolled at Geneva College and started in the fall of 2007.
It didn't take Lindsay long to get involved at Geneva. She has participated in many different clubs and activities for the past four years, including New Song, Genevans, The Grace Notes, Majorette Line, Concert Band, being a L&T Mentor, and God Led. Lindsay talks about her time in New Song, a music and drama ministry group sponsored by Geneva, and the impact it had on her spiritually: “It's really good to be surrounded by growing Christians for half of a summer, and it helps that you're singing about Christ every day, too! We have organized partnered prayer times almost every day and that really helps keep us on track.”
The Lord has used others at Geneva in molding and teaching Lindsay to be a musically-gifted disciple for Christ. “God has definitely used other students at Geneva to support and encourage me in my walk with Christ. He has also shown me that everything he calls me to do is ‘ministry’, be it in the church or school system.”
Lindsay has experienced much of Christ’s love and grace in her time here at Geneva, enabling her to grow in her relationship with Christ in many ways. “Christ and His grace are simply becoming more and more real and all-encompassing as each semester passes,” says Lindsay. “I've realized that redemption covers all areas of life, and not just ‘religious’ life.”
Lindsay has a brother who also attends Geneva, Justin Brothers. Set to graduate in the spring of 2011, Lindsay will end her time here at Geneva and pursue a full-time music education teaching job in the public school system. Now that’s a calling.
