Alumni Profile: Donovan DeGaetano

Donovan DeGaetano, School of Adult Learning alumnus
Donovan had always felt drawn to ministry. He saw North Park’s church and ministry management degree as a program that would give him the necessary tools to reach his goals. “I chose North Park because the School of Adult Learning enabled me to earn a BA in church and ministry management,” he says. “I felt this program would better prepare me to serve the local church as I answer God’s call to serve in youth ministry.”

After graduating, Donovan found that the experiences he had and skills he developed at North Park helped him navigate the next steps of his career path. “The quality education that I received through the School of Adult Learning has definitely prepared me to successfully balance my family life while continuing school with a master’s program,” he says.

Donovan is currently completing a master’s degree in special education. He will then pursue a call in full-time family and youth ministry.
