LBC Grad Passes on Biblical Training as Youth Pastor

August 4, 2017

For Charles Hirschy, LBC made all the difference in his spiritual and professional life. A graduate of our youth and young adult ministry program, he explained to us that he always appreciated the college’s relationship-first approach to implementing practical ministry. “My education at LBC focused a lot on relationships and discipleship,” he said. “And now I’m using many of the things I learned in my classes at LBC to disciple and shepherd the people God has given me!”

Hirschy serves as the coordinator of student ministries and community outreach at Grace Church at Willow Valley, meaning he works with people – a lot. According to him, that’s not much of a problem. “I love people,” he explained, “And I love hearing stories of God's redeeming work - and getting to know people on a deeper level than just the normal, ‘Hey, how are you?’”

According to Hirschy, LBC has impacted the way he does ministry. “I loved that we studied God’s word in depth,” he expressed. “I am learning just how important it is to make God's Word be the foundation of ministry and LBC gave me that!”
