Director of Christian education (DCE) major with youth ministry specialization, theology and psychology minors from Brookfield, Wisconsin
Ryan, how does CUC provide opportunities to inspire your faith?
Every day there's an opportunity for my faith to grow here in some way — it's a matter of whether you take advantage of it. There's chapel every day, Prayer and Praise contemporary worship on Sundays, communion on Wednesday nights, different concerts that are faith-inspired, hymn sings and more. There's just tons and tons of different things.
The amount that my faith has grown since I came in as a freshman is just astonishing. Concordia–Chicago definitely has inspired that growth to occur, and it's growth that is completely necessary for the vocation I'm going into but also just for my personal relationship with Christ.
