  • Transformation: seen and unseen - President's perspective - Hesston College
    signs and park in the new spacious entry lot We marvel at the new space created in Northlawn for performing arts education Programs change too We started the Nursing and Aviation programs in the late 60s and early 70s We now graduate more than 50 nurses a year and have more than 100 graduates flying for major airlines Foundation Studies was a wonderful innovation for a period of time but has given way to more rigorous work within disciplines and transfer ready courses For 10 years we enjoyed hosting students from Central America and the Caribbean through the Peace Scholarship Program Many programs have been started and later modified or discontinued We are always transforming We plan believing a new initiative may be transforming but we only recognize transformation in looking back Some of our most profound endeavors are least visible at the time Getting our first regional accreditation in the 1960s planting trees in the 1980s and measuring quality in the 2000s are prime examples All of these serve the transformation that is far more eternal and profound but least visible to the eye the transformation of the person This is our real work helping students connect with their past while seeing the future with new eyes We help students to value their own culture while learning from the cultures of other students We wrestle with real world problems while developing the faith and hope that motivates us to make the world a better place We study salvation history to connect ourselves with God Our students see this to some degree while they are here but they see it far more clearly when they look back As you read this issue I hope you are reminded of the transformations of the college but even more of your own transformations

  • Bringing history home - Hesston College
    look like said Diller As planning and construction commenced the scope of the project increased both in the sense of the details involved and in what it meant to Diller personally Over its lifetime Green Gables went through a series of transformations to fit the changing needs of Hesston College and its students Diller decided to recreate Green Gables in its original 1909 form which excluded features such as fire escapes in 1 24th scale Blueprints from the original construction no longer existed but vibrant descriptions from John Sharp s 73 centennial history Hesston College 1909 2009 A School on the Prairie Cascadia Publishing House 2009 helped Diller create the building to mirror its earliest days What took the most time was figuring out how to make to scale 95 windows that operate almost 2 500 sections of wood shingles siding flooring five panel doors and transoms for the first floor a lighting system stairways and porch railing said Diller The porch railing columns and floor were created from original salvaged wood As Diller and his wife Norma collected material prior to the demolition they discovered on the paper beneath the siding near the front doors a large heart with two names inscribed in it Even that Valentine lives on beneath the model siding now bearing the Dillers names Diller also completed the interior of the first floor and basement to reflect the original layout a challenge since so few photos exist of the original interior and numerous renovations had been done over the years Over the six years and hundreds of hours of work of the model s construction the project took on more significance for Diller than just a woodworking project Green Gables holds so much importance for the start of Hesston College but as I worked on the building I came to realize it was just that a building built to suit the needs of Hesston College at that time said Diller More importantly it was and is the people that make Hesston College what it is Helping Diller to reach that realization was the photo that appears on the cover of A School on the Prairie Pictured there are the first students faculty and staff of Hesston College in 1909 outside of the newly constructed Green Gables yet unnamed but the only physical presence of the brand new school Leaning against the porch railing are John and Henrietta Cooprider the building s first caretaker and cook and Diller s great grandparents Their children were among some of the first students and faculty and they began a legacy that to date spans five generations of Diller s family This is just part of the fabric that makes Hesston College what it is today as a growing vibrant and varied institution said Diller Each person s stories and experiences are what make Hesston College so special As the model was unveiled in its new home in the front lobby of Northlawn during Homecoming Weekend 2015 alumni reminisced on

  • Intentional ministry model transforms student faith - Hesston College
    Fifty two sermons a year does not make disciples The implementation includes each of the 11 Exploring Ministry students inviting two others not in the class to participate weekly in a small group meeting or triad where they read and discuss scripture share their lives create accountability and pray with and for one another At each weekly meeting the same five questions are to be asked to help lead discussion and to keep group members mindful of their actions and responsibilities Where have you seen God at work this week What did you hear God say to you this week during your prayer time Did you finish reading the assigned portion of Scripture for this week How have you shared the love of Jesus with others this week Where have you fallen short this week The goal is that the groups will disciple each other and grow said Hershberger Students are learning how everyone has something to give them They feel supported and held accountable to read their Bibles weekly They are having new thoughts about God For many of the students the assignment has pushed them outside of their comfort zone while at the same time teaching them new ways of spiritual and ministerial leadership I was a leader in my youth group but this is a much more intimate level of leadership and I was nervous said Exploring Ministry student Rachael East 17 Larned Kan The groups are smaller than traditional Bible studies so you can t leave without talking and being open and vulnerable The result is 33 students growing in their faith and learning to be vulnerable together Cool things are happening with the girls in my triad group we re talking and growing said East I overheard one of the girls telling a prospective student
