Susan Hammond ’21 shares about her experience: “The Leadership and Ministry program is excellent. This degree equipped me for greater leadership roles within my organization. I am currently leading a team, and this degree has allowed me to have a greater confidence in that leadership role. I also grew in my faith as I dug into the scriptures with my professors and classmates. The flexibility of the online program was perfect for my stage in life. We had wonderful conversations about the things we were learning, and we became like a little family. I was able to work and travel back and forth between two different countries while keeping up with my class load. I learned so much and would do it again in a heartbeat. The professors were available to support me in my faith journey, modeling servant leadership through their listening and answering my questions. Getting this degree was truly one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I loved every second of my time as an Asbury student!”


“It is never to late to finish your degree and don’t doubt what the Lord can do!”
