So Many Possibilities
Sometimes we need a little inspiration to start heading in the right direction.
It’s not always easy to imagine the future. Where will you go? What will you do? What’s even possible?
Columbia’s grads have been where you are right now. They know what it’s like to work through big questions and step into God’s dreams for their lives. It’s amazing to see the kingdom-focused, world-impacting vocations our alumni are pursuing today – in a huge variety of roles, organizations, and places. We gathered some of their stories and insights to give you a little inspiration.
What story will you share one day?
BA Caregiving & Counselling 2004
Founder & Counsellor, Re.Pose Therapy
“I believe God designed us to heal and to thrive. That doesn’t mean we don’t have limitations or stuck points. I believe God made us with the resources within to be connected to who we are at our core – who we are as made in his image. But stuff gets in our way. I love to help people discover healing. That’s the best part of my job. Seeing people who come into my room pretty hopeless discover there’s hope.”
BA Intercultural Studies 2012
Chaplain, Harbour Light Addictions & Recovery Centre
“I am part of a small team responsible for the spiritual care of our staff and clients. Some days I may be talking to someone who has relapsed for the fifth time and is about to give up hope; another day I might be celebrating with someone as they make it to one year clean and sober; another day I might be working through the book of Mark with a new Christian, helping him see Jesus with new eyes.”
BA Intercultural Studies 2015
Director, Camp Likely
“Being a camp director allows me to be intentional with our staff and campers as we spend at least a week together in the middle of Creation, building community and sharing about Jesus. This job brings me so much joy as I watch Jesus work in the lives of kids who are so broken, lonely and scared. I see him speak to them, I see them love the Word of God and I see them feel safe.”
