About Lindsay:
Lindsay grew up in the beautiful state of Montana, and came to Pennsylvania as a BBC freshman. She graduated from BBC in 2004 with a degree in Social Studies Education, and spent three years substitute teaching in public schools in the area. Currently, she uses her passion for teaching by tutoring students part time at the Sylvan Learning Center. Her husband Michael is from Columbus, OH. He graduated from BBC in 2005 with a youth pastoral degree. Michael and Lindsay married that summer (in Montana, outside in the rain!). Since then, Michael has been taking classes at BBS pursuing his Masters of Divinity. He is also the part time Junior High Youth Director at Heritage Baptist Church.

So far, the two have thoroughly enjoyed being dorm parents. Lindsay loves the opportunity to work with wonderful teammates and be mentored by Carol King. She even enjoys the late night hours in the dorm. Looking back over her first year in the dorm, her favorite part of the ministry has been seeing personal growth in the lives of “her” girls. Michael and Lindsay love being part of ministry together. Eventually, they hope to work with youth on the mission field (possibly Ireland). They don’t have a lot of free time for hobbies, but they always make sure they find time to travel to visit their families, watch OSU football, and play their favorite board game, Settlers of Catan.

History of Woolsey
Arthur G. Woolsey was a member of Baptist Bible Seminary’s second graduating class, and returned to BBS in the 1940s as a member of the Board of Trustees. When BBS found itself without a President just one month before classes were to begin in 1960, the board persuaded Arthur Woolsey to fill the position. He served in this capacity for 10 years, resigning in 1970. President Woolsey’s colleagues described him as extremely gracious and dearly loved. He received the alumnus of the year award and 1978, and Woolsey Hall is named in his honor.

Fast Facts

  • Today, the women of Woolsey Hall strive to honor God by functioning under the following mission statement:
    “Woolsey Hall was designed by God to be a home of uniquely different individuals who come together for a common purpose. Our vision is that the members of Woolsey Hall will become united together as a family of growing and maturing ladies. We will endeavor to achieve our goal by uniting this body through a spirit of friendship and encouragement. We want to be known as women of character who display integrity, authenticity, humility, servant-hood, and submission to God and each other. Committed to a foundation built on biblical thinking and godly living, we will impact each other, the BBC family, and the world. Individually we choose to be committed to God and each other.”
  • During the 2008-2009 school year, the women of Woolsey will be studying Romans 12. The ladies were challenged to memorize this chapter over the summer in order to prepare for a year of devotions, speakers, and events focused on the passage.
