When senior year of high school came the pressure of trying to figure out the right school for the right price was intense because I thought it would make or break my future.
Working in ministry was a desire of mine and when I heard about NBI I thought it would be a great fit and it was. The year was a Christ-centered experience, and kept me on track with my education, which was something I really wanted. It built a firmer foundation in my Biblical understanding, and gave me lots of opportunities to share my faith in the community and with retreaters.
After some community college classes I transferred to Trinity International University and was able to graduate four years after high school with a degree in Communications. I am now working at Faith Church in Grayslake, IL.
NBI was a God-send that I treasure for not only the experience of being set apart in the Northwoods, but also learning from professionals the tools of how to apply education and service to glorifying Christ.
