The public speaking ministry of Dr. Christina M. H. Powell started in her freshman year at Penn State University and continued through her years of doctoral research at Harvard University and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, long before she received a “License to Preach” and then became an ordained minister. In those early years, she spoke in churches across denominations as well as at events such as a college honor society induction ceremony. She enjoys ministering on Sunday mornings in churches and at various leadership training conferences, as well as speaking to students and faculty on both Christian and secular college and university campuses.
