Dr. Linda L. Wellborn

Welcome to Evangel!

During your college years you'll make decisions that impact the rest of your life. Except for choosing to accept Jesus Christ as your personal saviour, choosing a college major and life partner will affect your life more than any decision you will ever make. Make those prayerfully!

Remember Matthew 6:33: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these other things will be added unto you."

I'm glad to talk and pray with you any time. I'll look forward to meeting you!

Favorite Thing About Work: Helping students recognize their God-given skills and abilities in order to find their place of service in the Kingdom of God.

Favorite Memory as a Student: Realizing I didn't have to have my entire future and professional life mapped out. It was up to me to be faithful and apply myself, but a relief to realize God had my future in his control. Jeremiah 29:11 -- "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you andnot to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Originally From: Akron, OH
