Ministry Programs

  • Weyerhaeuser Younger Scholar Program
    This program is designed to raise the next generation of Christian scholars. Young scholars work in a one-to-one relationship with faculty on projects that provide the student a better understanding of what graduate school will be like. In addition, discussion focuses on elements of graduate school that might prove challenging for students who have attended Christian colleges. The year culminates with a conference where students make formal presentations of their projects.
  • Presidential Scholars
    This program is designed to foster a more specific sense of vocation around leadership. Students, all in positions of campus leadership, meet six times at the home of President Bill Robinson to discuss his book, Leading People from the Middle. This program gives students an opportunity to hear President Robinson's view of vocation as well as to share their own struggles with leadership.
  • Lilly Research Interns
    This program provides funds for four students each year to be trained in research skills for working with local congregations in the greater Spokane area. Students are trained in oral history and sociological analysis; they work with church archival material in the Whitworth University Library. Contact Dale Soden, Ph.D. or Archivist Janet Hauck for more information.
