Tiffany Miller, MA '15: Answering the Call
Arriving at GCTS is only part of the path in Tiffany Miller’s calling. Bible college was not originally in the plan for this soccer star from the Bay Area, but a budding relationship with God began to lead Tiffany through a series of events and growth that placed her where she is today. GCTS went from not even being on her radar to being the place she needed to be, so much so that it was the only seminary to which she applied.
While studying for her Master’s in Divinity at GCTS, the need for an upper level theology class led her to sign up for The History and Theology of Worship. Miller is a worshipper at heart and avid music lover, but didn’t know what to expect from the class. Through the course her notions of worship were challenged and she discovered that worship was more than the music we sing. Through Dr. Price’s engaging lectures and thought provoking assignments she learned that “worship is how we respond to God in anything we do”. Her experience as a student showed her that each narrative in the Christian experience matters – including hers with its twists and turns.
Today, Tiffany is an admissions representative at the Hamilton campus and is active in encouraging prospective students to answer their call through the ISBCE Scholars Program. The program allows ISBCE scholars to develop and refine their research skills in their area of study, in conjunction with their study of the Black Christian experience and racial reconciliation. She shares with incoming students that the Seminary is a place where students are able to understand their identity and unique story and accept those of others as well.
This understanding of your calling shows the individual that “when you are walking in obedience and doing what you are called to do, that is essentially worship.”
Master of Arts in Religion
The ISBCE is pleased to introduce Casey Johnson, one of this year’s dynamic scholars. Casey is pursuing a Master of Arts in Religion at GCTS. She is dedicated to race reconciliation and hopes to meaningfully engage others to commit to the ministry of reconciliation.
Recently, Casey’s dialogue about race led to a published blog post by the Emmanuel Gospel Center.
