Associate Dean of Students Wanda Velez (Nyack College Rockland campus) will be among the roster of dynamic speakers at The Hope Gathering on Friday, March 3, beginning at 7:00 p.m. and continuing all day Saturday, March 4 from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the W83 Ministry Center, 150 West 83rd Street in Manhattan.

This annual event convenes women from more than 60 different New York City churches to share stories of the impact God has had in and through their lives. The Hope Gathering is sponsored by Cru, a non-profit evangelical organization founded by Bill Bright for university students.

Dean Velez has been an employee of Nyack College since 2001, beginning her tenure as the Director of Alumni Relations followed by her transition to the Office of Student Development in 2003. In her role as dean since 2010, she heads the Office of Student Development, a branch of the College that governs all facets of student life. She has served Nyack in numerous roles including fundraising, community engagement, and leadership development as well as crisis intervention, mentorship and spiritual formation.

The alumna of Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary was also ordained as a minister of the gospel in 2011 by The Gathering Place Global Ministries. Rev. Velez is passionate about the call “to proclaim good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, and to set at liberty those who are oppressed.”
