After graduating from Belmont, Megan spent three years serving as a Young Life missionary in India, working to introduce Jesus Christ to young men and women.

Megan says, “Belmont’s College of Theology and Christian Ministry played an important role preparing me for my time in India. The professors were great about encouraging me in what God had called me to do.”
