Director of Faith Formation for Youth and Young Adults Announced

Wendy-Mohler-Seib-Mar2016-218x300Rev. Wendy Mohler-Seib has been selected to be the first director of faith formation for youth and young adults for the Richard and Julia Wilke Institute for Discipleship at Southwestern College. She will begin her new position July 1. Mohler-Seib’s primary responsibility will be to work within a 350-mile radius of the college to identify students for a selective one-week summer summit at Southwestern. The Summit will help participants explore the spiritual call in each of their lives and will be administered by the Institute for Discipleship with funding by the Lilly Endowment, Inc.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to Southwestern,” Mohler-Seib says. “Some of the most influential years of my faith formation occurred at SC, so I am excited for the opportunity to give back in a way so many gave to me. For me, there is nothing more joyful than seeing young people engage in deep theological conversations and experiencing the life-transforming grace of Jesus Christ. This position is the perfect place for my greatest passions and gifts to meet in a way that I can positively influence others, particularly youth and young adults.”

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)

Each child and young adult has had directors of formation since Cain and Able – parents. No amount of money or church programming can make up for bad parenting and bad parents. Thank you, Richard F Hicks, OKC
