HDS Commencement 2015

Student Voices

Rhee-Soo Lee

"HDS truly allows you to explore your own path to ministry in whatever form that might take. Through two fantastic field education experiences, I've been able to discern that my ministry is one of working with youth in education." —Rhee-Soo Lee, MDiv '15
