Introducing Amy Gilbaugh: Seminary Student Blogger

June 21, 2012

We are excited to introduce you to one of our new student bloggers, Amy Gilbaugh! Welcome to Gordon-Conwell Voices, Amy!

Name: Amy Gilbaugh

Degree: Master of Divinity

Hometown: Iowa City, IA

Where were you before seminary? In Chicago - I had just graduated from Moody Bible Institute with lofty ambitions of living in the city and saving dough for the far distant dream of seminary. June passed, July passed, and I was itching to be in the classroom again. One week before orientation I packed my Jeep, sold everything that wouldn't fit, and arrived on Gordon-Conwell's campus 60 hours later.

Favorite hobbies? Reading (it better make the list if you're going to be a seminary student, I suppose), photography, writing, and thrifting.

Favorite food? Cheese - anywhere, anytime, any kind.

Favorite hero of the Christian faith? Right now, Margery Kempe. In a world where women's voices in the church were often silenced, she said, "I think that the Gospel gives me leave to speak of God."

Favorite book? Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Interesting fact about yourself? When I was five years old, I wanted to be a veterinarian. When I was six, I was told I am allergic to all fur. Seminary is a natural alternative, no?

Issues you are passionate about? Christ in literature and the arts, Church history, theology of body and embodiment, preaching.
