Featured Alumnus – Katie Erickson

Katie’s journey into seminary education and Christian ministry has involved some rather dramatic turns and a whole lot of trust in God.

A 2003 electrical engineering graduate from Ohio Northern University, Katie went on to pursue her Masters of Engineering at the University of Toledo. Following in the footsteps of close family members, her long-term goal was to teach engineering as a college professor. Her graduate education was largely funded via a teaching assistantship, but after only one year, that funding was cut.
