Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary welcomes Kathleen Howell as an administrative assistant to the Faith Business Office. Miss Howell will also be taking over the housing coordinator role and receptionist duties at Jordan Hall.

Kathleen grew up in the state of Minnesota (Mankato and Prior Lake). She graduated from Faith Baptist Bible College in 2014 with a B.S. in Office Administration and Women’s Ministry. She is the youngest of four children and her mother, Diane (Siefkes ’72) Howell, is also an alumnus of Faith.

Since her graduation from Faith, Kathleen has worked in office management roles in the pharmaceutical call center industry and with the Papa Murphy’s Pizza franchise. Her hobbies include reading and traveling. She has been on four missions trips to England to assist missionaries Stan and Paula Boelman, both of whom are also Faith alumni.

Kathleen began her duties on Monday, May 20, 2019, and will be learning her role from Miss Karis Cole, who is transitioning over to her new position as a professor in the Office Administration program.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to be able to invest in the lives of students,” said Kathleen. “The Faith faculty and staff were always willing to be a listening ear or to lend an encouraging word when I was here as a student, and I look forward to demonstrating those same qualities in the lives of students today.”
