Dr. Stephen Kellough
After 25 years of faithful service as the Chaplain of Wheaton College, Dr. Stephen Kellough will retire on August 1, 2014 - exactly 25 years to the day of the start of his tenure at the College. Over the course of years, the Lord has used his life - his many interests, his love of learning, and appreciation for and ability in working with a wide variety of people - to minister effectively to students, faculty, administration and staff. Along the way, the Lord enabled him to spiritually guide the campus community during the Revival of '95; to remind us of God as "our refuge and strength" in the tragedy of 9/11; to minister comfort to the campus community in times of grief and loss; to preach the word of truth in season and out, and to encourage and offer hope to an ever-evolving campus community. Chaplain Kellough will long be remembered for his wisdom, humility, grace, and commitment to the Lord and His people.
We pray God's richest favor and blessing upon Dr. Kellough and his wife, alumna Linda (Burgess) Kellough, as they take a sabbatical year to discern God's next assignment for them. You may contact Dr. Kellough at Stephen.Kellough@wheaton.edu.

Now in her 18th year at the College, Marilyn serves as Ministry Associate for Care and Administration in the Chaplain's Office. Raised a pastor's daughter, her father's pastoral heart for people and her parents' own example of faithful ministry have given her an example and standard for investment in the lives of others. Marilyn enjoys the opportunity to think creatively with staff and students in planning for chapel. In addition to attending to the details related to chapel, Marilyn enjoys interacting with students, faculty, and staff within the context of everyday life in community at Wheaton.

Leslie Royalty Weinzettel
In her third year as Office Assistant, Leslie brings the gifts of a bright, energetic, willing, servant spirit to the work of the Chaplain's Office. Born and raised in Southern California, Leslie braved the mid-west winters to attend Wheaton College, graduating in 2006 with a Christian Education major, and minors in Spanish and Bible. After working with a para-church ministry for 4 1/2 years in Jacksonville, Florida, Leslie returned to Wheaton in 2012 and married her fellow '06 alumnus Joe Weinzettel. We're thankful for the Lord's provision in Leslie, and are pleased to have her as a valued colleague in the Chaplain's Office. You may contact Leslie at Leslie.Weinzettel@wheaton.edu.
