Wanda Walborn is currently in her eleventh year as the Director of Spiritual Formation at the Rockland County campus of Nyack College. The 1984 Nyack alumna is also an adjunct professor in Nyack’s College of Bible and Christian Ministry where she teaches courses such as Introduction to Women in Ministry, Introduction to Spiritual Formation, and Developing a Woman’s Gifts and Calling. She had earned a master's degree in intercultural studies at Alliance Theological Seminary and is currently working on her doctorate from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. Whether she is inside or outside of the classroom, Wanda lives out her passion, which is to train and mentor emerging leaders. As she pours into the lives of young men and women, her desire is that they grasp the depth and breath of God’s love for them and that they live lives without compromise for the Lord Jesus Christ.

With her husband, Dr. Ronald Walborn, dean of Alliance Theological Seminary, she planted and pastored Risen King Community Church in Redding, California from 1989-1999. In addition to her experience in church leadership, she also draws from her roles as pastor’s wife, homemaker, mother, and educator, as she speaks at venues around the globe to audiences that include both laypeople and leaders.

The Walborns are the parents of four children, Kelly, Brice, Karis, and Karly. In her “free” time, she enjoys sports, reading, the outdoors and-above all, spending time with her family.
