NCF Officers 2010-2011

Stephanie Ash, President
(s-ash@onu.edu)


Hello! I am Stephanie Ash. I am a junior physics major and I am from Beavercreek Ohio. I am a sinner saved by grace by my all-loving God who sent His only son to die for me so that I could know Him!! It’s the best news ever!! Now, I am a child of God, a new creature in Christ, and God’s workmanship! I am made complete in Christ and my joy comes from Him alone! I know that this world is not my home and I look forward to the day when Christ returns. But, until then I am so blessed that the Lord, the God of all creation who is holy and righteous, would choose to use me in His great plan! I am sooo excited about what God is working and is going to be working on this campus! I pray that we would daily realize how much we need Christ and how we can’t do anything apart from Him. God can do anything and when we don’t see Him working it is not Him who is doing something wrong. It is us getting in the way and trying to do it ourselves. Prayer is extremely essential!! When we pray and are seeking God’s will, He hears us and moves! I have seen amazing things happen through prayer. Like I said, God can do anything! Furthermore, I pray that we can become passionate, devoted followers of Christ. That we would be so on fire and filled by His Spirit that we would hunger after His Word and we would be compelled to share with others this amazing news!! And when people look at us, they would not see us but see Christ and they would come to know Him too! God is so good! If you ever want to talk, grab lunch or dinner, I would love to! My number is 937-367-4445 and my email is above by my name.

Jay Gindlesberger, Vice President
(j-gindlesberger@onu.edu)

 

HEY! I’m Jay Jeffrey Gindlesberger, but that is just my birth name. I also go by an assortment of nicknames, ranging from Boomer to Gandalf to Jaybird to pretty much whatever. I come from a long line of loud voices (my laughs may reach up to a ¼ mile radius if full strength) and giants (explaining my 6’4”ish height). Intramurals and sports in general are one of my favorite things to do, but I also love group games/activities, a good jigsaw puzzle, books, and movies. God has really blessed me with a passion for service. I am looking forward to expanding on this in the VP/Outreach position with NCF this year. I love spending my weekends and spring breaks with Habitat for Humanity, volunteering and utilizing my time for others. Besides NCF and Habitat, I’m also involved with Risen Soldiers, ResLife, random groups/events, and the wonderful world of ONU pharmacy. As a P5 and officer, I look forward to seeking after God more fully and finding new ways to reach out to ONU and live with more joy for Christ’s name.

David Lauback, Co-Large Group Coordinator
(d-lauback@onu.edu)

Hi! My name is David Lauback. I’m a junior, Middle Childhood Education major from Perrysburg, Ohio. Sarah and I are the large group coordinators (which means that we are responsible for TNT). Besides being an NCF officer, I play snare drum in the ONU Marching Band and play in the Percussion Ensemble. I am also a brother of STE, the national Christian fraternity. I’m a huge NASCAR fan and I’ve followed the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series since 1997. Most importantly, I love God! Although I was raised as a Christian, I did not think about God a lot until I arrived on campus freshman year, when an old friend went out of his way to bring me to Risen Soldiers—our men’s Bible study group. The rest is history, right? Well, not quite. Actually, ‘a work in progress’ would be a better description of what has happened since then because I still make a lot of mistakes. As a matter of fact, I still feel like the new kid on the block when I have the privilege of sharing time with the other NCF officers because of how far they’ve come in their walk with Christ. With that being said, I would love to get to know you and where you are on your walk with God! One of my favorite, if not my favorite, thing to do is talk with people. (Okay, that’s definitely my favorite thing to do!!!) I love to see the ways in which God is alive on campus, as well as how He has brought us to this point in our lives! I encourage you all to come to TNT and, if you have time, I would love to get to know you!
Your brother in Christ,
David

Sarah Mosher, Co-Large Group Coordinator
(s-mosher@onu.edu)

Hey! I’m Sarah, one of the co-large group coordinators for this year, which means that I help David arrange TNT. I’m a junior philosophy major, and I live in Lima and commute every day. I play harp in the ONU orchestra, and my job is cleaning horses’ stalls - I love horses! I also love Christian rap (especially Lecrae and Trip Lee!) and apologetics. God is the reason I’m alive and the center of everything I do - I’m proud to be a Christian! I want to help others focus on the all-satisfying, incredible God as He reveals Himself in His Word. Oh yeah and I love Ecclesiastes, Romans, Proverbs, Psalms, Job, Ephesians, Colossians, and yeah pretty much the whole Bible. You should read it. J Feel free to let me or the other officers know if you want to find ways to get involved and reach out through NCF!! :D

Zach Freer, Men's Community Officer
(z-freer@onu.edu)

Hey guys. I’m Zach, a Technology Education major. I hail from Ashland, Ohio which is halfway between Cleveland and Columbus. I have a very close Christian family with my dad, mom, younger brother, and our dog, Jack (who sometimes comes when Mom calls my name and vice versa…bad planning on our part). Oh, not to mention a whole slew of other relatives I see on a frequent basis. In October 2002, I made the most important decision in my life; to follow Christ and to seek a deeper relationship with Him. Since then, my life has become more meaningful and has made more sense (at least in retrospect). There have been many ups and downs since that October, but it’s definitely been an adventure that I wouldn’t have wanted to take on alone. All throughout high school I ran XC and Track, played in the band, and did Tech for our school productions. I am in band here at ONU, I still run, and enjoy other athletic activities (like sitting on the couch with a bowl of nachos watching football). I am competitive, although I have no real natural athletic ability and am pretty uncoordinated. It’s usually fun to watch me as long as you’re not on my team. I like outdoor activities like hiking and taunting my brother by sitting in the shade with a cold drink as he mows the lawn; however, I find long walks on the beach boring. This year I am the Men’s Community Officer, which means I am a contact person for you guys and I send out the emails. To get my full job description, you should read my co-conspirator, Jana’s blurb. Feel free to email me or hunt me down on campus if you ever need anything or just want to talk.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.” -John 3:16-17 (See also Proverbs 26:11)

Jana Widmer, Women's Community Officer
(j-widmer@onu.edu)

Hey everyone, I am a pharmacy major from Sterling, Ohio. I love the Lord with all my heart! God has been so good to me and I would love to talk to you about it sometime. I like to learn about creation and see God’s majesty in everything!  I like coffee, the beach, dark chocolate, reading, chipotle, actually having free time, and being with family and friends. This year I am the women’s community coordinator. I’m really excited to see how God will work on our campus! My hope is that as followers of Christ we can encourage, challenge, and watch out for each other. This can happen through small groups, discipleship, and just awesome fellowship. Let me know if you ever want to start a small group, join a small group, disciple, or be discipled and I’ll help set it up. Please know that I’m here for you and would love to talk anytime.
"And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ - to the glory and praise of God." - Philippians 1:9-11

 


Dr. Brian Keas, Advisor
(b-keas@onu.edu)

Hello! I’m Dr. Keas, a professor in the Biology department who gets to teach some fun (to me at least) classes about insects, snails, parasites, marine biology, and more. I am nearly 20 years removed from my own college days, but still remember the great times I had and the way God used my professors, my chapel experiences, my fellow college students, and retreats/conferences to challenge and shape me as best as I would let Him. I still continue to learn more about His awesome love and grace each day, and enjoy hearing from others, especially students, about what God is doing in their life. God has blessed me with the most wonderful wife, Angela, who puts up with my crazy ideas of fun - like running for hours at a time barefoot or leaving dead animals around the yard to attract flies. Feel free to stop by my office in Meyer Hall and I’ll tell you why these are so much fun, and how amazing our God is - or just look at the officers of NCF who shine for Him every day!


*Every winter, the NCF Officer Selection Committee accepts nominations at TNT for the following year's officers. If you have any questions about how the officer selection process works, feel free to contact a current officer.
