Here are some examples of the GREAT momentum building on campus as we strive to become GREATer, for the greater glory of God.
Katey Bartie ’07 puts her sign language interpreting skills to use in just about every setting as an independent contractor interpreter. In each of these settings, she strives to leave a legacy of advocacy and compassion through her interpreting. Bartie’s diverse assignments show there are no limits to what you can do as an interpreter.
“I’ve had the honor (9 times now!) of being in the room when a Deaf mother was giving birth. I’ve interpreted for Deaf husbands and wives giving their vows on their wedding days. And I’ve interpreted onstage in a Marilyn Monroe costume (with the blonde wig!) in front of hundreds of people for a Deaf Blind man dressed as Elvis.”
Meghan Durán ’15 would say it was divine providence that brought her to Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic (NCLC) of Indianapolis, Ind. One chance encounter with a pastor from Urban Outreach in Indianapolis set her on the path towards becoming program manager for the Victim Justice Program at NCLC.
The Bethel Women’s Soccer Team is living out its commitment to respect all human beings. Head Coach Jamie Lindvall, along with assistant coach and wife, Rachel Lindvall, led the soccer team to Houston, Texas, Sept. 21-24, to provide disaster relief to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
In September, more than two dozen Bethel students, alumni and other professional artists from the community gathered for the Center for Career Development and Global Engagement’s latest Instagram Takeover. During the Takeover, students explored Chicago, where they photographed Green Street Smoked Meats, the Robey Hotel and Low Res, a community-building creative arts studio. Representatives from each location shared their stories and advice with the group.
