Shanice Taylor '14 | Major: Intercultural Studies

"The Bible, Religion & Ministry Division at Cornerstone is full of wise men and women of God. It has been an honor and privilege sitting at their feet and learning from all their experiences being on the mission field and in full-time ministry positions themselves. The most challenging, beneficial aspect of my program are the tough questions I am constantly asked. As a result, I'm graduating with a stronger and firmer foundation to my faith."
