When Ethan Metzler graduated in spring 2019, he believed his time at MBU was over. However, when the position of resident director at Pillsbury-Huff Residence Hall became available, he felt the Lord call him to lead the building of young men he was a peer with just one semester before. Regardless of the position change, Metzler continues to deeply and meaningfully connect with everyone he is around at MBU, pointing to Christ through his actions.

Missouri Baptist University’s North Hall begins the fall semester with a new resident director, and she may be a familiar face to many students and faculty members at MBU. Meredith Linn, a former North Hall resident and 2019 MBU graduate, is excited to again be a part of the MBU community and connect with the building of young women she has been called to lead.

As of fall 2018, MBU has implemented service days to take place each semester, during which students and staff can partake in service activities while also enjoying free food, yard games and live music.
