Wheaton College: 'A Strong Commitment to Christian Discipleship and the Life of the Mind'

When Dr. Philip G. Ryken was being considered in 2010 for the role of president of Wheaton College, a prominent, national Christian evangelical institution, he remembers telling the board of trustees his perspective about the job. "I told the trustees the only college president I could be is somebody who viewed this as a form of pastoral ministry," he says. "I think most college presidents would say there is an aspect of their work which is pastoral." It's also a calling, a way of life, Ryken says. Ryken came to Wheaton after serving 15 years as pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, where he learned about being chief executive of an institution and chief caregiver for a community of people.
