Nicole Rienstra


Student Organizations Associate

B.A. Seattle Pacific University 2006
M.Div. Princeton Theological Seminary 2010

As the Student Organizations Associate, Nicole works with the Justice Coalition and Honduras Project. Working with student leaders on Justice Coalition keeps Nicole on her toes thinking about a whole range of issues and the ways in which God's people can engage these issues. And working with Honduras Project, it is such an honor to walk alongside students passionate about partnering with Honduran water engineers to provide clean water for small Honduran villages. 

In her work with students, it is Nicole's goal to help students reflect theologically on their leadership experiences, and to discover the ways in which God has gifted and equipped them to serve and lead. As a student at both Seattle Pacific University (’06) and Princeton Theological Seminary (‘10), Nicole was very active with campus groups and knows from firsthand experience that development occurs inside and outside of the classroom.

Nicole and her husband James (Wheaton alumnus '06) are both from Washington State, and have two spunky little girls - Madeline (2.5 years), and Isabel (9 months). They love getting home to spend time with family whenever they can and, as true Washingtonians, they both enjoy spending time at the ocean and hiking the gorgeous Cascades. Nicole also loves to cook, run (sometimes), play tennis, wax philosophical, and be crafty.
