Abigail Harper

The Discipleship Project Student, Cohort 2 aharper@cts.edu

Abigail Harper has enthusiastically accepted the call to join the second year cohort of The Discipleship Project. Born and raised in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Abigail hopes to obtain her Master of Divinity degree in order to more fully and more deliberately minister to all people of God. Abigail and her husband Peter Harper, who is a seminary student at Lexington Theological Seminary, have moved to Indiana from North Carolina. Abigail comes to CTS with a Bachelor of Science in Gerontology from Barton College, and four years of extensive case work experience as a Regional Long Term Care Ombudsman. It was during her time as an Ombudsman advocating for the rights of older and disabled individuals residing in Nursing and Assisted Living Facilities, that Abigail discerned her call to further her education at CTS.
