Geneva has had a large role in preparing Katie for future ministry. She studied abroad in Seville, Spain, because she loved the idea of “moving fully from proficient to fluent.” Katie loves the Bible Department and has great relationships with all of the student ministry professors.

"A small campus is really nice because you get to know everyone."

“Vince Charming is an act and it’s a stage name, but it’s very much based off Vince Smith because the personality is there and it plays very well. It’s me off stage and on stage.”

Rose Lundy

Music Education

"Basically everything I’m involved in is music."

Sara Anderson

Hope is not lost, and we can still work towards making things whole again. Geneva has affirmed for me that I picked a helpful major that can make a difference."
