Residence Hall Director - Martin Hall

What is your favorite part about being an Residence Hall Director?

My favorite thing about being a Residence Hall Director is having the opportunity to be in a space where students are able to discover who they are as a person, student, Christian, and member of the community. Being in this position allows me to create an environment where these students can be exposed to new ways of thinking as well as find meaning in their experiences that can transform the way they view the world around them and their future beyond college.My favorite thing about being a Residence Hall Director is having the opportunity to be in a space where students are able to discover who they are as a person, student, Christian, and member of the community.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

An Authentic Christian Community means that people are able to come and be their true selves while also interacting and engaging in conversation and discussion around their own faith and to be challenged and supported by their peers to think differently about how they believe and ultimately why they believe. Having an Authentic Christian Community opens the doors for change and allows our residents to be open to different ways of seeing God’s love and seeing how He can shine his light through us.
