Dylan Haro
Master of Divinity

DylanMy journey to Bethany Theological Seminary began in the summer of 2004 with eight other high school students. We attended a conference entitled "Exploring Your Call." It was during that conference that I first seriously considered ministry as a vocation. During that experience I learned that ministry doesn't necessarily mean Sunday morning behind a pulpit. I also felt a deep connection to the denomination through the friends I made--both peers and leaders.
