I attended UGST in response to a call toward leadership and ministry, and God opened doors I never imagined! Upon graduating, I began a chaplaincy program, providing spiritual care to patients, families, and staff. I am now certifying as an ACPE supervisor, guiding those interested in chaplaincy or congregational ministry. I serve on the UPCI Women in Ministry Network committee and recently founded a nonprofit organization that raises awareness and provides support for women pursuing or involved in church leadership. I am grateful for my Apostolic Pentecostal heritage and my UGST training; it made all the difference in my life!
