House of Bonhoeffer Launches New Website
Site will convey house history and solidify house identity
The House of Dietrich Bonhoeffer celebrated the launch of a newly-designed House website at The King’s College on January 21. The MoB, or Men of Bonhoeffer, launched the website as a tool to increase community in their house, to relay important information to parents, to increase interaction with alumni, and to tell the general story of the House.
“In order to secure our path into the future, the first step is to document where we’ve been in the past,” said sophomore Chad Abbott, who helped guide the web effort. “This will allow future house members to base their decisions on the House’s course on the rich traditions that we’ve developed.”
During the launch party, the MoB welcomed Eric Metaxas, author of a recent biography about the House’s namesake, who shared the relevance of Bonhoeffer's writing to the lives of young Christian men. Jamey Nordby, Vice President of Advancement, also shared his hopes about the site’s viability for alumni relations. Current House President Mitchell Hailstone, former President Matthias Clock, and junior Joshua Encinias led discussions on the importance of creating and maintaining House traditions.
Michael Toscano, an alumnus of Bonhoeffer, says that the website serves as “a tool for the Men of Bonhoeffer to communicate their House vision, retain alumni-student connections, and to flourish creatively.”
Houses at The King’s College are student-led, mission-driven communities. They serve as social, academic, and spiritual support for students at King’s. Each House is led by four elected students and guided by faculty and staff advisors.
