Calling, Character and Competency: An Interview with Rev. Dr. Royce Evans

By Darrell Yoder on January 11, 2016

Over the last three years, I have had the privilege of working with and building a friendship with my colleague, the Rev. Dr. Royce Evans. Initially, I was impressed with the breadth of his ministry experience (and that's still true), but as I've gotten to know him and his heart for the Kingdom I've been even more inspired by his openness, humility and courage. I'm excited to say we've invited him…

By Royce Evans on January 21, 2016

Recently, GRTS adopted the phrase "Following God's Call" in our recruiting emphasis and missional statements. I must admit that when I first saw this phrase in seminary materials and heard it in conversations with my colleagues, I thought it doesn't get much simpler than that. In retrospect, however, the simplicity of that statement belies what is often a much more critical and complex question, not…

A Story to Tell, A Story to Live

By Jennifer Greer on March 21, 2016

We are new friends with different backgrounds, but we share one thing in common: we both have children with medical issues. Though I have faced emergency medical situations with our son for 10 years (and his genetic condition will continue to present lifelong struggles), this momma is in a new battle with her infant. Someone who knows a little of my story introduced us and thought I might be an encouragement…

Where are they now: Janelle Brown

By Joe Stowell on June 6, 2017

Our world needs Christ-centered graduates. I'm reminded of that every day. So when I hear about our CU alumni influencing the world for Jesus Christ, I like to share their stories with others. Most recently, the President's Office reconnected with Janelle Brown, a business major and 2012 President's Award recipient. She answered a few questions about her life as a CU alumnus and her position serving…

If You Haven't Picked a Major Yet, It's Going to Be Okay

By Meredith Sweet on June 30, 2017

You love your college; after all, that's why you enrolled. And even if you don't know what you want to study yet, you don't have to compare yourself to the other students you might be seeing on social media.

It's okay to still be searching. It's okay to feel uncertain.

And if you're looking for guidance or just a different point of view, here are four ways you can use your first semester to help…

Questions to Ask Before Declaring an Engineering Major

By Allison Todd on February 16, 2018

When choosing a major, it can seem hard to know where to begin. How do you choose what to study? What path should you pursue if you don't know what your career goals are yet?

The good news is that picking a major is more than just picking a job. By declaring a major, you get to follow your interests and learn how to use them to influence the world. One field of study can lead you down numerous different…

A Day in the Life of a CU Student

By Sarah Hiemstra on April 27, 2018

College can be intimidating. It is a unique stage of life that contains challenges and opportunities not found in any other setting. As a result, the daily schedule of a college student can be a bit different than the average high schooler or working adult. Every day can be a whirlwind of classes, work, homework and social time. Navigating it all can seem overwhelming.

Here is a general outline of…

Understanding God's Will When Choosing a College

By Audrey Wierenga on May 4, 2018

Fewer things are more daunting than getting to the middle of your high school career and realizing you have a choice. High school isn't forever. What's next? As your junior and senior years progress, you and your friends are driving all over the state (or country) visiting colleges and frantically filling out applications.

And then reality hits. High school is over and the cap and gown have been put…

When and How to Decide Your Major

By Samuel Brooks on June 22, 2018

Deciding on your major, either before or after starting your college career, can be difficult. For me, I have always known that I wanted to go into business since high school. My family has always been involved in business, whether it's entrepreneurship or working in middle to upper management of a corporation. We also have family friends that own businesses from small to large corporations. I've even…
