Why I counsel at LBC?

I love working with college age students. So much happens during those four years in terms of gaining independence, formulating a worldview, and cementing one’s faith. I consider it a privilege to journey alongside these young adults as they learn and grow.

Why I counsel at LBC?

Having been a student myself I do understand the needs, struggles and challenges which a student face in day to day life. LBC gives me an opportunity to use God’s word as a source through which I can walk along with these students in their journey. It is a blessing to equip students with tools which can support them to face these challenges and enrich their experiences of being a student at LBC.
