Growing up in a foreign land, being expected to abide by another culture’s customs, and eventually being forced to leave the place which had become home. These are all issues which Dr. James K. Hoffmeier faced while growing up in Egypt as the son of American missionaries. Political pressure would end up causing the revocation of his family’s visas and he again became an alien in Canada.
It’s a sudden decision and is something that, just a month and a half ago, was honestly not on my radar and that I hadn’t been considering.
This spring, I started taking graduate classes at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in their Master of Divinity program. Trinity is located in Deerfield, Illinois which is a suburb of Chicago.
I start graduate school this week. A little over three years ago, when I graduated from college, I always knew that I would be back. If you had asked me at the time, I probably wouldn’t have expected it to take three years. But things come up, and life never quite seems to go as we would have planned.
I’m very excited to be going to Trinity Evangelical Divinity
