  • People of Wheaton College Graduate School | Wheaton
    at Wheaton I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Evangelism Leadership This program impacted me in many ways First of all God unpacked all my baggage and clarified my doubts God instilled within me a new passion and joy that I always wanted I realized that the purpose of my study is not knowledge skills or a degree God s purpose was to make me whole It was indeed a wonderful moment to discover my own self and who God is The second thing that impacted me was from Dr Rick Richardson He made me understand what the gospel is and how should I present it in the ever changing culture of our time I learned that as a builder needs to know how to use hammer and a nail Gospel workers needs to be equipped to present the gospel well through stories movies images that it will stay in the heart and mind of the person I also learned many great lessons through guest speakers and exposure to different churches such as New Life Community Church Naperville community Church Lawndale community church Wheaton Bible church and Willow Creek church that paved a way for me to plant a church Evidently in January 2013 based on Matthew 22 37 39 in a team of five students including myself we planted a church called Neighborhood Community Worship Service on Devon Ave in the Rogers Park Neighborhood of Chicago The primary purpose is to reach out Hindus Muslims and those who are far from God by providing a place of worship I am forever indebted to all my professors who have equipped me to engage in this multi cultural Neighborhood Community evangelism in Devon Ave Chicago I pray God may use my family for Christ and His Kingdom Laura Schwent Shultz Psy D 12 Degree Clinical Psychology Current Position Director of Behavioral Health at Christ Community Health Services in Memphis TN Experience at Wheaton As I have now worked in several different clinical settings I can confidently state that the training I received at Wheaton was fantastic Not only have I felt beyond prepared as a clinician and a researcher but I have developed a deeper level of compassion for those I serve There are many ways in which I have grown through my time at Wheaton For example I recall distinctly a comment that Dr Yangarber Hicks wrote on one of my papers during my first year I had written that I tended to be a black and white thinker and she scratched in the margin That will change here You will need to learn to accept that there is much more gray At the time I did not fully understand what she meant and I inwardly felt a bit of resistance when reading her comment She continued to stretch my thinking throughout my time in the program as did many of the other faculty members 5 years later after sitting with many people hurting from various illnesses or difficult

  • My 1-2-1 Experience | Wheaton
    as you 1 2 1 leaders provide a safe place for these students to express how they feel and know they are not alone College is hard Being at Wheaton is hard Being a person of color at a predominantly white institution is hard But I believe that these hardships are meant to ultimately bring us together we don t have to navigate these unfamiliar waters alone 1 2 1 provides a space where people can connect and begin to cultivate their own identity Acceptance of that identity ultimately helps us begin to understand how best to interact with the people around us regardless of race class gender or other differences Early at the beginning of this semester one of my 1 2 1 students sent me a text out of the blue that said How can you deal with being the only black person everywhere you go I called her and invited her to come over to my apartment and we stayed up talking until the wee hours of the morning Sharing our experiences ended up being so life giving for both of us Before she left she gave me a huge hug and said Now I want to be a 1 2 1 leader As part of the Wheaton community we all have the potential to broaden each other s horizons We often develop false assumptions about people and if we don t check ourselves before acting on these assumptions the repercussions can be hurtful Being a 1 2 1 leader has taught me about the importance of taking time to listen to other people s stories pushing me to throw my preconceptions out the window Everyone no matter the race or culture has a story that s worth listening to That is why we should approach our interactions with patience and grace Photos above Aseye Agamah 16 front center gathers with her 1 2 1 students in Lower Beamer Center fall 2014 Posted December 8 2014 Tags Campus Student Activities My Wheaton Subscribe to Posts Author Profile Students share an inside look at Wheaton College Contributors Alex Soholt 16 Alley Kammer 16 Alyssa Paulsen 14 Amy Early 16 Andrew Cuthbert PsyD 18 Andrew Sedlacek 15 Ann Szeliga 17 Anna Morris 16 Aseye Agamah 16 Beau Westlund 14 Brielle Lisa 18 Catherine Holt 15 Charlotte Hallstrom 16 Charlston Ong 19 Clementine Kane 18 Corinne Elliot 15 and Sarah Macolino 15 Dana Henderson 17 Daniel Tannous 16 David Batdorf 16 David Robinson 15 Elena Miles 15 Elliot Leung 17 Emma Schaafsma 17 Emmanuel Ndolimana M A 15 Erica Forkner 17 Ethan Jones M A 17 Hunter Hambrick 17 Hannah Benson 15 Jeff Camp 18 Jillian Hedges 17 Jon Thornton 16 Joohee Uhm 15 Jordan Heres 15 Josh Fort 16 Kate Fredrikson 17 Katie Mann 18 Katrina Burlet 15 Kendall Eitreim 15 Kelen Caldwell 17 Kirkland An 17 Lyndsey Pritchard 16 Marianne Millen Psy D 19 Marshall Hollingsworth 16 Matthew Adams 17 Michael Daugherty 15 Morgan Jacob 17 Natasha Zeng
