Why I Love North Waters

I love North Waters because of the community we get to have on the outskirts of campus. It is amazing to see how the students that choose to live out here get to really be a family. Plus, we are on Lake Valentine which is so beautiful. It is totally worth the walk. 

Best Thing About My Job

The best thing about my job is definitely the opportunity to minister to upperclass students. I love the challenges that come up in the lives of upperclassmen because they lend themselves to true, real, and deep conversations. Getting to work with students is the best. I honestly think I have the best job in the world. 

Number One Reason to Live on Campus

COMMUNITY! When in your life will you get the opportunity to live among hundreds of people in the same season as you? I loved living on campus as a student so much that I decided to make it my full-time job. Even as an introvert, I see it as a great representation of the church and I am able to admire how the Lord is working among the intentional community that is developed on campus. 

Favorite Bethel Tradition

Koinania is definitely my favorite Bethel tradition. It happens the Sunday night before classes start and it is where we, as a university, get together for a two hour service filled with amazing worship, testimony, and commissioning. We are all about leading with Christ at the center of what we do and we make that very apparent from the get-go.
