Starting his master’s degree at a regional University, Brandon Edwards, a 2015 graduate of KMBC’s ministry program, wrote the following. “In class this week, we were talking about how graduate work is different from undergraduate. In graduate work, the teacher said, the focus is on “ critical thinking ”. The thing is, I went to a college [KMBC] that emphasized “critical thinking” in undergraduate work. The class lecturer went on to say that graduate work requires us to learn to think and come to conclusions. This was common in every undergraduate class I had. My alma mater taught us to think, and I am thankful for that.” Brandon and his wife Bekah have just taken on pastoral duties at Parkway Church of the Nazarene in Decatur, Illinois. They would deeply appreciate your prayers.
