A 2019 graduate of ABC, Ali Whitworth has joined the staff as Administrative Assistant in the Student Services division. Miss Whitworth began filling this position part-time during her senior year; she also served on Student Council and happens to be the reigning women's champion of the Beautiful Feet 5k. Having grown up in a church planter's family in Utah, she transferred as a sophomore into the Bible/Theology and Youth & Family Ministry program with a concentration in Biblical Counseling.
"Studying biblical counseling here at ABC has only whetted my appetite to learn more about counseling and to pursue further education in that area. I see my time here at ABC as an opportunity to get firsthand experience in counseling and working with people, which is something I desire to do in full-time ministry someday. In my opinion, every student or individual being trained for ministry should invest in at least one counseling course because counseling is so practical and nothing less than discipleship!"
