"My experience at Western Seminary was transformative and one that has deeply impacted my personal life, my family and my ministry. I went to Western at first just looking for a deeper knowledge of what I believed was God's inerrant, infallible word but wasn't sure of all the reasons why and didn't really have a sound context for my Theology. What I found through my experiences there was answers and context to some very challenging questions and importantly, God's calling for my life."Greg Johnson / Charlotte, NCManaging Director, Orbital Socket
