Being a Student Leader - Kim Wilken
LCMS U is running a series on what it’s like being a student leader at some of our LCMS U locations throughout the country. Today we’re interviewing Kim Wilken from Missouri Science and Technology University.
LCMS U: Tell us a little about yourself. What school are you from? What are you studying?
KW: I’m from the Missouri University of Science and Technology. I’m a senior double majoring in architectural and civil engineering.
LCMS U: What leadership position are you filling at your campus ministry? What kind of stuff does that entail?
KW: I’m the president of Lutheran Student Fellowship. I lead the officer team to plan events and make sure everyone knows what’s going on. I also do the paperwork that makes us a registered campus organization.
LCMS U: How does being a student leader help you to witness to what you believe?
KW: I get the chance to meet with a lot of different people on campus and also prospective students. I can share with them what LSF does and about my faith. I like being able to help serve others on campus and in the community.
LCMS U: Campus ministries are always looking for good ideas - what kind of good ideas can you share from your campus ministry?
KW: We have SOS (Supper on Sunday) every other week. Each person pays $2 (free your first time) and we share a home-cooked meal together. Sometimes church members cook for us, and other times we cook the meal ourselves. It’s a great way to get people to come and fellowship in a laid-back environment and enjoy something other than cafeteria food or fast food.
Big thanks to Kim for this short interview. If you are a student leader and would be willing to be interviewed for “Being a Student Leader”, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
