Ministry Leadership Cohort Peer Leaders

Meet the Ministry Leadership Cohort (MLC) peer leaders!

Pfortmiller_Lauren_200x266.jpgHey! My name is Lauren Pfortmiller and I am a Senior at Calvin. My major is in Kinesiology. I was in the cohort my first 2 years and was a peer leader last year as well. Being in the cohort has been one of the best things for me, I have been able to grow a lot as a person and with God. I love to plan events for everyone and to get to know everyone too. Some of my favorite things are playing games, hanging out with family and friends, and I love to travel. I can’t wait to work with everyone and be a part of this amazing group again.

Clouse_Courtnee_200x266.jpgHey! My name is Courtnee Clouse and I am a senior. I have a double major in Biology and Psychology and a minor in ministry leadership. I hope to use all this on the path to Genetic Counseling. I love to be outside, do Crossfit, hangout with friends and read books. I will talk to anyone who wants to listen about it. I can’t wait to see all of our sophomores again and to meet the new students!

Boyd_Lizzie_200x266.jpgHey y’all! My name is Lizzie Boyd. I’m a senior here at Calvin studying Elementary Integrated Science with a minor in Ministry Leadership. I am excited to be a peer leader again this year. I have been a part of the cohort since coming to Calvin. Some fun facts about me: I love the outdoors, I'm always watching the Detroit Red Wings, and have a giant UNO collection. I spend a lot of my time in the Dining halls since I am a student supervisor.

Hillman_Aidan_200x266.jpgMy name is Aidan Hillman and I will be a junior at Calvin University starting the fall 2023. I am majoring in Religion, Philosophy, and Spanish, and I am minoring in Ministry Leadership. In my free time, I enjoy anything with music, and I love to longboard. I was a student in the Ministry Leadership cohort from 2021-2023, and I absolutely loved that time. I am very grateful that I keep getting to invest in the MLC community, and I am excited to see the ways that the cohort will continue to grow.

Huizenga_Levi_200x266.jpgHi there! My name is Levi Huizenga, and I’m so excited to be a peer leader for the next cohort! I’m from Larkspur, CA, but grew up in Grand Rapids. I love reading, watching movies, drinking coffee, and going for long runs. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all!

Witvliet_Kate_200x266.jpgHello MLC! My name is Kate Witvliet and I’m so excited to meet you all! I’ve loved my years in the cohort and look forward to walking alongside yours! At Calvin, I’ve also enjoyed singing choir, being a Barnabas, and being a student coordinator at the Service-Learning Center. I love my History and Political Science majors as well. In my free time, I love to go on walks with friends, make yummy food, play my violin, have late night conversations, or go on spontaneous adventures:) I am praying over you all as you transition into the Calvin community!

Ogg_Cailin_200x266.jpgHi, my name is Cailin Ogg, and I am going into my junior year at Calvin. I have been a part of the MLC for the past two years and have made some of the greatest friends through the cohort! I look forward to now serving as a peer leader! I am from Colorado (and you will likely hear me bring this up way too often!) and am a psychology major with a neuroscience concentration here at Calvin. I am also a part of the swim team at Calvin and in my free time enjoy Spikeball, trips to Lake Michigan, and coffee conversations. I cannot wait to meet all of you and have the chance to walk alongside you on your college journey!

Bos_Anneka_200x266.jpgHi everyone! My name is Anneka Bos, and I'm a junior studying accounting + data analytics. I grew up in Hudsonville, which is right between Calvin and the lakeshore. Some things that I really love are going on long walks, listening to classical music, coffee, any noodle based meal, excel spreadsheets, the beach, paddleboarding, flowers, and pickleball. I've loved being in the MLC my first two years at Calvin and am so excited to meet you all and grow with you in faith and understanding!
