News From the Georgetown EML Program

Preparing for Post-Quarantine Ministry, Outreach Magazine

April 23rd, 2020

In 2009, I graduated from the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, with an Executive Master’s in Leadership degree. That first day on campus I remember milling around with my new cohort, getting to know each other. After disclosing my clergy credentials to a classmate, the expected question came without pause, “So, why is a preacher in business school?” To me, the answer was obvious. Though my focus was on the kingdom of God, I realized I still needed to do business well in order to achieve my ministry goals.
