KISSIMMEE – Johnson University Florida will be hosting a “Women in Ministry” alumni gathering for all alumni Nov. 9 on campus.
The event will open 9:00 a.m. under the Chapman pavilion with registration and a coffee and doughnut breakfast. Alumni will be able to attend workshops and catch up until a JUFL women’s basketball game with Florida Memorial University at 2 p.m.
Workshops will be at 10 and 11 a.m., hosting faculty Kendi Howells Douglas and alumnas Bethany Baker and Jennifer Martin.
Howells Douglas is the Assistant Dean of the School of Intercultural Studies and Professor of Intercultural Studies.
Baker is the Executive Director of A-Gap, a technology awareness non-profit started by Nataliee’s Island Orchard Juice Company. Baker will be speaking over healthy technology habits.
Martin is a financial advisor and will be discussing public service loan forgiveness.
A special presentation with a surprise speaker will take place at 11:50 a.m., followed by a baked potato bar lunch.
From there, alumni will be free to leave or hang around for the women’s basketball game at 2 p.m.
JUFL Director of Advancement, Alan Tison, has helped put the event together.
“This will be a golden opportunity for our alumni to get together,” Tison said. “There is not a lot of structure other than the workshops. The idea is to come and reconnect with your friends and reconnect with faculty.”
Recently resigned young alumni coordinator Amber Craft had the idea for a “women in ministry” alumni gathering. She is now a bookkeeper with Stadia Church planting, but has said this event will be applicable to all attendees, regardless of gender.
