Have you ever considered how many people around the world are without anyone to shepherd and guide them? This Christmas, you can do something about it. You can expand your influence when you give to Westminster.”
Stories of Influence
Hear how influence is passed down from generation to generation. Imagine the part you can play in influencing others when you partner with Westminster.
We asked our students who influenced them most. Listen to their stories.
Tell us about the person who influenced you most in your Christian life.
I have a friend, Ngofeen Mputubwele, who called me to Christ at a pretty young age. We would meet on campus and share a meal together. Every week, we would go through a different passage of the Bible and he would show me the gospel and demonstrate what the wages of my sin actually were. We did one study on 2 Timothy. Instead of just telling me what Paul was saying to Timothy, he would really model it. He showed me that Timothy was to guard the deposit that was entrusted to him, and at the same moment he was actually passing that deposit onto me.
Was there a person who influenced you to study at Westminster?
The Old Testament professor I studied under, Dr. Michael Morales, was a profound influence in my desire to continue to study theology.
What was it about his teaching that was so influential?
His teaching led us into a deeper understanding of who God is. Each lecture magnified the beauty of God and captivated us. He taught us, through the Old Testament, who God is and why He is worthy of worship. His Biblical Theology inspired you to desire God, know His Word, and to seek after it.
If you could summarize his influence in a sentence, what would it be?
Theology is meant to lead to doxology. Studying the Word of God is for the purpose of knowing God and worshipping Him through the knowledge of who He is.
