How to make your 2020 Glow Up a game-changer.
I hit a wall in my education and in my career. Even though I was successful in every aspect of the word, I still needed more. So when the CCV simultaneous enrollment option, here on referred to as the SEO program, became available I didn’t hesitate to take advantage of it.
Lancaster Bible College and Capital Seminary agreed to take my Liberty University credits and Cornerstone College of Virginia agreed to take them as well! In 2020 I will graduate with a degree in Theology from CCV and a degree in Communication from LBC.
And I’ve already learned so much! Working closely with my LBC professors I’ve been able to take my everyday practical work to the next level. I furthered my career by becoming more valuable as a business owner and communications professional with the information I learned at LBC.
I’m changing tax brackets, the future of my children, and my children’s children forever!
For the first time in a long time, I’m excited about my future. I’m thankful for the opportunity to make a better future for my children. There is absolutely no universe in which this would have been possible but for the grace of God and the CCV/LBC partnership that affords new students, homeschool students, and adult learners the opportunity to complete two degrees at one time for less than 30,000 a year.
Leading worship for churches my whole life and working in the marketing and communications industry for the last few years, I had a lot of experience and ability but no degree. It was hard for me to demand the pay my time was really worth and even more difficult for my peers to take me seriously as an at times stay-at-home mother of two.
Earning a 4-year degree in Theological Studies and an accredited 4-year degree in Communication makes my 2020 glow up a game-changer. I’m changing tax brackets, the future of my children, and my children’s children forever!
