Maid to Manage

Nora Keeling

Cleaning homes was Nora Johnson specialty until she felt called to work and minister in an office setting. Nora began with a (B.S. degree in Management and Ethics). Her degree allowed her to pursue an M.A. in Public Administration at I.U.P.U.I where she is now finishing.

"God was calling me to work in an office setting and use the ethics training I received to impact the workplaceā€¯.

Writing a business plan for an assignment the professor asked if anyone wanted to launch the business they wrote about. He offered help with wisdom, counsel and resources. "The professor was willing to go above his role of teaching to really helping us". She feels many professors go beyond the expected at Crossroads.

"Prior to Crossroads, I had a skewed view of God and his love for me. Things that I had learned while growing up, were not quite "right". I needed a shift in my thinking. At Crossroads, I was able to see the Word more clearly and discern the truth of the Scriptures".

"The greatest impact of Crossroads for me is the reconciled campus. As Dr. Ware has called Crossroads 'a glimpse of heaven here on earth', I have seen this for myself. Students of all races, ages, denomination, and life experiences are sitting in classes together. They learn and laugh together, form friendships, pray for each other, carry each other's burdens, and work in ministries together. Crossroads is truly a picture of how God wants the Church to be-each believer doing his part and all working in harmony. Crossroads is unique in that there is no segregation-only integration." -- Nora Johnson
