From time to time I hear or read things by older church leaders about how out of touch their college was and how little training about discipleship, leadership or mission they got.

As I bash out another essay for my college, and also think about a project I’ve got to get finished off,  I’m very grateful to be studying at a place that seems to take discipleship, leadership and mission so seriously.

I’m also encouraged by the stories from friends studying elsewhere that maybe maybe things are getting better elsewhere too.
