In this article you will meet Maddy, a twenty-seven-year old ATS [Alliance Theological Seminary] seminarian, who genuinely desires a deeper walk with the Lord. Now, as Maddy goes after these experiences, she describes them in the Nyack “New York’s Christian College” official blog called “Life at Nyack.” It is here one can read her astounding story of her encounter with the man with the piercing sword as well as other stories of her spiritual quests.
Maddy Recruits for ATS
Who is Maddy? Maddy is a third year seminary student who, up to this past summer, was the Admissions Associate for ATS. In “Why ATS?!”, Maddy records just who she is, “I am that enthusiastic face found behind a table, a banner, and a whole lot of ATS and Nyack College material at an event or church. And I am that woman who prays, encourages, and answers the tough questions and lends a listening ear to … prospective students of the Alliance Theological Seminary.”
Maddy further writes, ” … for me recruiting … isn’t something I do out of obligation. I recruit for ATS because I strongly believe in everything the … seminary has to offer.” Maddy continues, “As a student of the Master’s of Divinity program God has literally shaken and is in the process of shaking everything that can be shaken within me.” A bit later, she reveals two of the places where this “shaking” has been going on. She says, “… through lecture after lecture in courses like ‘PPTF’ and in ‘Initiation to Spiritual Formation,’ I truly began to understand who it is that God says I am.”
Maddy Retreats to the Resting Place
In Maddy’s blog “Fearless” one finds Maddy at the Resting Place: House of Prayer and Revival Center which she writes is, “… a house of prayer where many Nyack and ATS students frequent.”
