What has serving on the WTS Board of Directors meant to Jonathan?
Serving on the board gives me the opportunity to impact an area of church life that has always been important to me - seminary education and candidacy issues. Moreover, while I am a graduate of LSTC, my wife has completed the TEEM program at Wartburg. I treasure the perspective of both institutions and the gifts that both bring to the Church.
