  • Kinesiology, '19

"When I came to LeTourneau University, I came with a sense of calling from God," said Josh Raies, senior kinesiology major from Midland, Texas, who plays baseball on the YellowJacket Baseball team and serves as the student body president.

"The university was appealing because of its highly regarded academics, because of the prospect of receiving a Christian education, and because of an opportunity to play collegiate baseball, but there was something much deeper in my pull to LETU," he said. "I felt a peace coming to LeTourneau. I knew that my time here would be pivotal in my development as a professional, as a man, and most importantly as a follower of Christ."

"The emphasis we place on spiritual formation is vital to what makes LeTourneau inherently unique," he said. "In every facet of life, the faculty and staff seek to cultivate an environment where students live in light of Christ's finished work on the cross. We are taught what it means to truly live on mission through a life of meaningful service to others, so the Gospel can be proclaimed in every work place and every nation."
