Student Story, Franco Juricic, M.Div. Candidate
January 28, 2015
I’m transforming. I find that each class, each experience and each exposure to something new is an ingredient in a recipe for what God is calling me to be. After engineering school, I thought like an engineer. When I finished my MBA, I dissected everything from a business or marketing perspective. In the same way, with my theological education, I think about the church and how we relate to the brokenness in the world. There are people all around us who are struggling. What are we doing about it?
That’s what I love about NBTS. We are challenged to relate to that brokenness and to think about how to use our degrees and gifts to bring healing to the world. I sometimes reflect on my half-time pep talk with God. The five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is only 6%. I’m grateful He placed me in that number, and I will use everything I’m learning at NBTS to make a profound difference in the lives of others.
