Event Specialist for University Advancement

amanda-thompson@bethel.edu

My history at Bethel goes back just a few years. My mom is an ‘86 Bethel grad and my brother a ‘12 grad, so I watched many football games on the bleachers of Bremer Field as my family and I cheered on the Royals! I graduated from the University of Northwestern - St. Paul in May 2015 and was blessed to join the Alumni and Family Relations team several months later. A few months after joining the team I moved into my current role as Event Specialist for University Advancement.

The best part of my job

The best part of my job is providing opportunities for the Bethel community to come together and make memories. I also enjoy finding new and creative ways to celebrate and promote Bethel through events.

My guiding Scripture verse

My guiding Scripture verse is Psalm 46:10: "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

In my free time

I really enjoy social media, so in my free time I consult several businesses and churches in how to use social media to create better community. I also spend time pursuing a variety of culinary endeavors, volunteering, and dog watching.
