Peter has always had a heart for ministry. It was this heart that brought him to study Theology at Colorado Christian University, where he found himself transformed by the love and support of the faculty, staff, and friendships there. He has been blessed by the many mentors in his life and seeks to do likewise. As a Graduate Resident Advisor, he is passionate about student development through relational ministry, programming, and hospitality. He believes that learning primarily happens through experiences and is an aspiring Enneagram student—believing that development flows out of knowing thyself.
Peter is an amateur book enthusiast, a fan of all folk music especially Sleeping at Last, and an avid spike baller. If he’s not outside, you can probably find him nurturing his plants or meditating on the words of Richard Rohr.
Gwen Farber is returning to her home away from home as a first-year GRA in Smith-Traber. During her own undergraduate years at Wheaton, she was a Psychology major and Bible/Theology minor with a deep love for Residence Life, which has recently led her back to Wheaton to pursue her master's degree in Christian Formation and Ministry. She was born and raised in Iowa, and now feels torn between her love of the sprawling Chicagoland area and her deep loyalty to the peaceful Iowan cornfields. You can often find Gwen driving around and exploring in her orange Jeep Patriot, Ollie, shopping at Trader Joe's, and drinking (or dreaming about) pumpkin spice lattes.
Ryan Anderson is in his second year as a Graduate Resident Adviser in Smith-Traber while he’s finishing up his master's in Christian Formation and Ministry, concentrating in Student Development. He was born in Okinawa, Japan and was raised in Carmel, California. He is a 2016 alum from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA, earning a bachelor’s in Business and Economics. Before Ryan was a GRA, he was a barista at a specialty coffee shop in Santa Barbara and worked in various children and youth ministry settings within church and camp environments. He loves good conversations (especially over coffee and/or toast) and running errands with people (for the sake of quality time). He also is an avid Spikeballer and Bananagrammer (even though he's novice at both).
Sean Harrison is a first-year GRA in the McManis-Evans Hall. Originally from Austin, Texas he graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Geography and has spent the past 7 years teaching high school social studies in Nairobi, Kenya. He is pursuing his master's degree in Christian Formation and Ministry, concentrating in Student Development. Sean has a love for cultures, traveling, attending live music events, and learning more about himself and others through the Enneagram.
Alley is returning for her sixth year of education at Wheaton, fueled by her belief in the mutual growth that can come by living alongside students in a residence hall setting. Guided under the mentorship of staff, faculty members, and church family while an undergraduate, she is passionate about creating physical and relational spaces that welcome students into their own process of personal, spiritual, and communal development. As a result, she is passionate about giving students the opportunity to participate in hospitality and community. After receiving her B.A. in Interpersonal Communication, she spent a year in automotive marketing, before beginning her master's in Christian Formation and Ministry, concentrating in Student Development. Beyond Wheaton’s campus, Alley enjoys remaining an active member and serving in her church family at Jericho Road, baking bread, dog sitting, and attending concerts in the Chicago area. She is looking forward to opening up her home one more year and getting to know her neighbors.
