Graduate Apprentice Residence Hall Director - University House

What is your favorite part about being a Graduate Apprentice Residence Hall Director?

My favorite part of being a Graduate Hall Director is the opportunity to see students thrive in the community we build together. I firmly believe that lives change when we encounter God's grace lived out in a community of people on a journey in life together. Having a front row seat as a Graduate Hall Director to witness this happening in the lives of students and experiencing the same kind of growth as a student myself is easily both my favorite part and one of the highest honors as a member of the Baylor community.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

Authentic Christian community strives to be the kind of community where everyone is seen, heard, known, and loved. In this kind of community we are met with the truth that we are both deeply flawed and deeply loved at the same time, which means we consistently need to rely on God's grace for everything we do together. When we fall short, we lift each other up with both truth and love and in this reality we find true freedom to be all God intended for us to be.
