Contact: Rev. Aminah Al-Attas Bradford

AminahAs Associate Chaplain for Residence Life, Aminah spends much of her time investing in the lives of RDs, RAs and students with the goal that the Residence Halls become authentic communities where students cultivate habits of Radical Kingdom Living. Aminah’s imagination is captivated by the ancient, living God who faithfully calls his people to love God and love neighbor.  While she longs to see students engage this God in all areas of their lives, she’s keenly aware of the pain and brokenness that accompanies life in our bodies. Aminah leads groups each semester on Faith and Doubt, Sexual Wholeness and Healing, and also hosts the Theology Roadshow in dorm basements where she facilitates intentional conversations on the life of faith. She also speaks regularly in classrooms and provides pastoral care and spiritual friendship to students individually.  Students dealing with doubt, disappointment, in need of healing, prayer or discipleship may stop by any time and consider her office a shame-free zone!

Aminah graduated from Wheaton College (B.A.) and moved to Honduras for two years to work with street children.  She later directed the Service-Learning and Missions program at Houston Baptist University, holds an M.Div. from Canada’s Regent College and is an ordained minister in the CRCNA.

Aminah’s  passions for spiritual formation, theology, Christian hospitality, radical homemaking, sustainability and neighborhood engagement all root in a longing for the Kingdom of God. And if all of this sounds too heavy, she’s mostly content to keep her eight hens and two toddlers alive all while she tries to figure out where she last left her keys.
