As a wife, stay-at-home mom, women’s conference speaker, Sunday school teacher, foreign language tutor and freelance writer, Laura Hunt already had a full plate when she noticed a Women in the Word (WiTW) conference poster hanging on the wall at her church. When she learned that the Michigan Theological Seminary (MTS), now Moody Theological Seminary–Michigan, was sponsoring the conference, Laura became intrigued with the possibility of attending seminary.

Rev. Terry Robinson, City Diretor, Here's Life Inner City - Detroit
"More than a degree, MTS–Michigan prepares its students for Real Impact." When taking charge of an urban ministry, it’s especially important that efforts go beyond simply speaking and sharing experiences. “You also need to walk the walk. You have to be careful that you’re not, as they say, sharing unlived truths,” says Terry Robinson, Director of the Here’s Life Inner City urban ministry in Detroit. “We’re dealing with a lot of poverty, and people in crisis. And they’ll sniff it out if you’re not genuine.” Robinson credits his MTS–Michigan training for his ability have real impact on the lives he touches.

The flight is scheduled, but that doesn’t mean we know when it’s coming. So we stand by the gravel lot, necks craned, scanning for a dark dot against the blue, ears straining to hear the distant hum which will become the thump of rotors echoing off the mountainsides, deafening us as it arrives, hovering in a cloud of grit, to transport soldiers to their various destinations and missions.
