What has serving on the WTS Board of Directors meant to Liz?
Serving on the Wartburg Seminary board has been exciting as I learn and take part in discussions about theological education methods like online learning and the TEEM program. It is also humbling to serve on the board for an institution that has so recently shaped my life and being–an institution for which I have so much love and regard. Lastly, it is heartbreaking to make difficult decisions that personally effect people I respect and care about and that change the way Wartburg was for me when I was a student.
