On July 5th, Lesa started graduate coursework for a Masters in Theater Education at the University of Northern Colorado. Many of you know Lesa’s undergraduate degree was International Ministries with an emphasis in Fine Arts. It wasn’t an education degree, however, and for Lesa to teach drama at the school she works at, she received a provisional teaching certificate with the requirement that she would need to do continuing education.
Many of you are keenly aware of the incredible ministry Lesa has, not only in drama, but in discipling, mentoring and training these students. She’ll be filling you in more in our next update, but she is already learning many things that she is excited to use in her teaching/directing and for helping her students utilize drama as a ministry tool at school and in the surrounding communities.
If you would like to be a part of supporting her in continuing this work, would you consider giving to her educational expenses? Right now we took out student loans to pay for her schooling and books. This summer she is earning 9 credit hours at a cost of $3,500. She’ll then take 3 hours each semester, another 9 hours next summer, and then 3 more semesters of 3 hours each. If you would like to give a tax-deductible gift to help with these expenses, instructions are below.
