Michaeleen Rood

My name is Michaeleen Rood, and I've been married to my husband, Josh, for almost three years now!  I was born into an Air Force family, which meant living in different places around the world like Germany, Arizona, and Missouri (just to name a few).  I moved to southeast Michigan in 2001 and found my way to Grand Rapids when I attended Grand Valley State University.  I've been proud to call Grand Rapids my home since 2005.  I was heavily involved in Young Life as a Grand Valley student and believe it played an integral part in my faith and identity in Christ today.

I met my husband at Grand Valley, where we were friends long before we ever dated.  He and I share a similar passion for leading and serving college students.  We've had the opportunities in the past to host students for dinner on occasion with the chance to build relationships with them.  In the Fall of 2014 a spark was lit under me, a desire and passion to hear their stories, provide meals (or caffeine) when needed, and to show up when they need support.  My hope for Grand Valley students is that they can continue to walk their journeys with Christ and that I can walk alongside them.
