Rev. 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.”
