Meet Alberto Ramirez Salazar
Degree Program – Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling
Hometown – Nuevo Laredo, Mexico
I am a naturalized citizen of the United States, originally from Mexico. I have lived in the United States for more than 10 years. I went to college in Tijuana, Mexico, where I received a bachelor of science in psychology. I also went to seminary in Monterrey, Mexico, and received a bachelor of arts in theology. I like to watch good movies, read good books, and spend time with my family, especially my granddaughter.
Why did you decide to attend seminary and GarrettEvangelical in particular?
I decided to attend Garrett-Evangelical for its great scholarship program, its academics, and its history of social justice advocacy.
What are you enjoying most about your seminary experience so far?
I have enjoyed most that this institution cares about me, my needs, my dreams, and my professional development.
How has your faith been strengthened since attending Garrett-Evangelical?
My faith has been challenged to respond adequately to the problems of the contemporary society.
Where do you see Christ leading you after seminary?
I see Christ leading me to places where mental and spiritual health are necessary. This program will expand my ministry with clinical skills in order to help my parishioners and people from the community in a more holistic way.
