Graduate Apprentice Residence Hall Director - University House

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

My favorite part about being a Graduate Hall Director is having the opportunity to build relationships with students, serve and be a part of their journey as they navigate college life. It’s also a huge blessing working with a staff like the people in CL&L where everyone is just as passionate and like-minded in serving the students and building an authentic Christian community.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

To me, authentic Christian community looks like people who believe and follow Jesus and want to love, encourage, support, and challenge others who are like-minded. Authentic Christian community is also a space where people can be open and vulnerable with each other and keep one another accountable. I believe it’s a place where people love God, first and foremost, and love others with all their hearts and more than themselves.
