After 24 years of service at Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary, Mrs. Sharon Gutwein will be completing her ministry, effective June 30, 2019.

Mrs. Gutwein joined Faith Baptist Bible College in 1995 as the Dean of Women, following a teaching career at Grandview Park Baptist School in Des Moines. Most recently, she has served as the administrative assistant to the Music Department.

Mrs. Gutwein leaves a legacy of humbleness and selflessness at Faith. Her character is well described in the 2006 Witness (Faith’s Yearbook):

“After eleven years of counseling college girls, Mrs. Gutwein has become the world’s greatest listener. Have a chat with her, and you will do all the talking. Mrs. Gutwein will listen, ask insightful questions, nod her head and when you are done, she always makes sure you leave on an encouraging note and clinging to a verse.”

A behind-the-scenes person with a love for Faith and its students, Mrs. Gutwein will be greatly missed.
