What is the best part about your on-campus community?
The best part about Kokernot is the home-like feel to the community. As the smallest hall on campus, faces quickly become familiar and strong friendships are formed. Kokernot also has a lot of programming space for students to gather and study such as a classroom and basement/TV area. Lastly, Kokernot has several traditions such as serving on the national MLK Jr. Day of Service, a week of Random Acts of Kindness, and respelling words with 'k's (i.e. kraft night) which all make the community a unique and special place to live.
What does authentic Christian community mean to you?
Authentic Christian community means recognizing the privilege of being able to live in community with one another and living one's life according to Biblical principles. This does not mean we lead perfect lives. We are imperfect beings which is why we need Jesus. Participating in authentic Christian community is the commitment of a Christian to be open and honest with their walk with the Lord and to love the others in their community, whether believers or not.
What is your favorite part about being an RHD, Resident Chaplain, or FIR?
My favorite part of being a RHD is the privilege of living with the residents in my building. My residents teach me so many things about their hobbies, talents, cultural backgrounds, and life in general. Each day also brings new challenges and celebrations with my residents too. I am blessed to walk with them during this special time in their lives.
