As most of my friends and family know I am going to seminary at Southeastern Baptist Seminary
in North Carolina, even though I still reside here in Texas. I have 18 months left to finish my degree, possibly one semester after that if the online course schedule changes again. I have done quite well in my calling to go to seminary, but I have started this campaign for one reason, for my family. Let me explain. I work as a Systems Administrator for my local church which I can easily put in 40 hours by Wednesday. On top of that I have course work, and on top of that is the side work of fixing computers, and teaching to pay for seminary. Unlike most people going to seminary I am not working active in ministry, which means I don't get time off of work to do my course work. Which my wife will attest I don't sleep more than 4 hours a night during a semster. My family has been so supportive of me for the past 18 months, and I think it's time they get me back for a while. Starting so late in life taking a semester off feels like an eternity. Financial aid is almost nonexistant, and student loans are out of the question. I am looking to raise money for my tuition alone, Book costs fluxuate so wildly per course, some semesters I spend $50, some over $300. God has done well to provide for me so far, but after finding this site through a friend I am hoping God will continue bless me and my family through this.
