I can't even describe to you the joy it has been obtaining this degree. While it was very time consuming trying to complete each assignment, work in a full-time job, pastor the Church full-time, and be a full-time husband, and father, I've got to say it was well worth it. Getting to walk across that stage and be recognized for the hard work was very satisfying.
There is no way I could have accomplished all of this without the love, patience, and support of my entire family. They have been with me through thick and thin. My parents were also a huge help in seeing that I was able to go through the graduation ceremony and afford the trip to Albany.
The question that everyone keeps asking me is, "What now?" Everyone wants to know if I am going to stop earning degrees. So far in my life the Lord has enabled me to complete my AS in Electronics from T.I.E., a BS in Management from Fountainhead College, a M.Min. from The Crown College & Seminary, and now my Th/D. from ATS. Honestly, the only other degree that I am toying around with in my mind is my Ph.D. and I'm already looking into possible schools to attend. But, I think I will take a year or two off from school and work on the book that my dad was always urging me to write.
