At the Leadership Fair Jan. 11, leadership representatives helped students apply for leadership positions through Residence Life, First-year Orientation Christian University Success, Community Life and Associated Students of California Baptist University .
Leaders at CBU have the chance to invest in their fellow students, inspire them to achieve academically, encourage them to live in boldness and challenge them to grow in their relationships with Christ.
The purpose of the fair was to help developing leaders find a position that will best utilize their strengths and passions so the CBU community can continue to be a welcoming place for all.
Stephen Pan, senior philosophy major and spiritual growth coordinator at the International Center, was at the fair with other leaders to inform potential leaders about the application process and share personal experiences while being in a leadership role.
“Being a leader has helped me to be more confident in communicating and has helped me focus on my vision of making disciples of Christ and helping others fall in love with CBU,” Pan said.
Many students said they found meeting leaders on campus valuable at the fair.
“This fair helped me meet current leaders and helped me learn about the different areas of leadership,” said Sarah Hom, freshman undeclared major.
Hom said she is now inspired to apply for more positions and believes it is important to have friendly and responsible leaders who invest in other people.
Others, like JohnPaul Scheuble, freshman music education major, said they are applying for leadership because they have been impacted by the people who have led them.
Scheuble said he is applying to be a resident advisor and FOCUS leader because of how his RA and FOCUS leader have shaped his life for the better.
Other leadership positions offered were in the Office of Spiritual Life and the International Center.
