Student Profile: Alex Early, Part 2

God’s love not only transforms us so that we can live as those who repent from sin and walk in the light, but it also changes the way we see ourselves. This fills us with incredible joy, grace, and gratitude. As we understand God’s love more and more, we end up becoming like children, in the way Jesus described. That’s a very good thing.


The Big Story of Scripture

The Verity Fellowship was born when two Western Seminary students, Taylor Turkington and Katie Roberts, began thinking about how they could help contribute to the equipping of women for the various types of gospel ministries that they may be involved in. Taylor and Katie were motivated to help women see the truth that the good news of Jesus Christ is central not simply to how a person understands the message of the Bible, but furthermore, must remain at the center of their lives and ministries. After almost two years of prayers and preparation, Taylor and Katie launched the Verity Fellowship this year, in partnership with Western Seminary.
