Dr. John Brogan will oversee the Center for Spiritual Formation and Vocation.
Northwestern College has announced a reorganization of staff within the Center for Spiritual Formation and Vocation (CSFV).

Dr. John Brogan, vice president for student development since 2005, will oversee the CSFV, a division that includes Northwestern’s chapel program and other campus ministry efforts, community and global ministry outreaches, service learning, the Career Development Center, and initiatives funded by the Lilly Grant. Brogan will also represent the CSFV on the Administrative Council while continuing with his other responsibilities in student development.

Activities related to Northwestern’s Lilly Grant, Vocare: Find Your Place, will be under the leadership of Dave Nonnemacher, who also now has the title of director of experiential education. He had been Northwestern’s director of service learning since 2003.

Marlon Haverdink, director of leadership development since 2005, has been named director of service learning. He will retain responsibilities in leadership development.

The Rev. Harlan VanOort, Northwestern’s chaplain since 2003, will report to the president and serve as a member of the Administrative Council.

The Center for Spiritual Formation and Vocation was previously under the leadership of Dr. Keith Anderson, dean of spiritual formation and vocation and director of the Lilly Grant. Following his 2006 departure to become the senior vice president of academic affairs and academic dean at Mars Hill Graduate School in Seattle, Dr. Susan Reese served a one-year period as interim dean of spiritual formation and vocation and director of the Lilly Grant.
