Dakota Roberts – Southeast Association
I am a member of Friedens UCC in Indianapolis and have been since I was confirmed there in April of 2009. I have served in various volunteer and leadership positions there, including going on mission trips, participating in youth group, serving on the Christian education ministry team, leading vacation bible school, and serving regularly as a liturgist in worship. In 2017 I was hired by Friedens to be the Revive and Thrive Youth Coordinator; I served in that role for one year.
I am currently finishing up my first year of a three-year Masters of Divinity program at Eden Theological Seminary. I'm thrilled and humbled to announce that I was awarded the Kenneth M. Cooper Book Award at Eden Theological Seminary. This award is given to a deserving student pursuing preparation for parish ministry with priority consideration to sons and daughters of the Kentuckiana Association. I'm grateful for the benefit of the sense of community seminary has helped me build. This is a benefit I pray all seminarians feel, not just during their time at seminary, but all their lives.
