Nicole Rienstra


Assistant Director of Student Involvement


B.A. Seattle Pacific University 2006
M.Div. Princeton Theological Seminary 2010

As the Assistant Director of Student Involvement, Nicole works with all of the special interest clubs on Wheaton's Campus, the Justice Coalition, and the GLO (Global Learning Opportunities) programs. With over 50 diverse special interest clubs, spanning topics in social justice, environmentalism, economics, art, and much more, it is a good thing Nicole has a broad range of interests – she is never bored with this job! Student leaders keep Nicole on her toes thinking about a whole range of issues and the ways in which God's people can engage these issues. It is Nicole's goal to help students reflect theologically on their leadership experiences, and to discover the ways in which God has gifted and equipped them to serve and lead. As a student at both Seattle Pacific University (’06) and Princeton Theological Seminary (‘10), Nicole was very active with campus groups and knows from firsthand experience that development occurs inside and outside of the classroom.

Nicole and her husband James (Wheaton alumnus '06) are both from Washington State, and have a sweet baby girl, Madeline. They love getting home to spend time with family whenever they can and, as true Washingtonians, they both enjoy spending time at the ocean and hiking the gorgeous Cascades. Nicole also loves to cook, run (sometimes), play tennis, wax philosophical, and be crafty.
