Freshman Spotlight: Sara Schick

Sara Schick, a freshman from Custer, Kentucky, has graced the campus with her sweet spirit and heart for the Lord. She became a Christian at the age of seven. “My older brother had gotten saved, and he was really excited about it. I asked my mom how I could do it too.” At age fourteen, she was sanctified. “I realized there was more than salvation. It was making God number one in your life. It’s been quite a journey," she says, “knowing he’ll never leave me is amazing.”

Sara’s parents heard about KMBC at a homeschooling convention a few years ago. They were impressed with the solid biblical values of the college and thought it would be perfect for Sara. “To be honest, I thought I was the least likely of my siblings to go to college,” Sara says, “I was happy at home.”

During this time, Sara and her family discovered she had cancer. It wasn’t easy, but Sara found her cancer to be a great witnessing tool. During her chemotherapy treatments,
God molded her will, helping her desire whatever He had for her future. She sensed a pull
towards KMBC. As she recovered, Sara prayed, “Okay, Lord, if you’ll provide the way, I’ll go.” Money began to pour in from friends and family. As he provided, God whispered, “Sara, I’m with you.”

Sara is studying Elementary Education here at KMBC. She’s not sure where God will
lead her, but wants to keep an open mind to whatever He has for her. One of her favorite
verses of Scripture is Colossians 2:10: “And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power.” One of the benefits Sara has found while at KMBC is knowing other young people who have a desire to know God. “I have support here. We’re all working toward a common goal.”
