Karen Lambeth is the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship campus staff member at Salem College. She is an alumna of Salem College and graduated with her degree in Sociology in the Spring of 2016. She was involved in her first year at Salem with InterVarsity as it was being planted on campus. She went through all of the Salem traditions from Fall Fest to Big/Little and continues to have a love for everything that the Salem Sisterhood is about. Through her two short years at Salem, her favorite part of InterVarsity was that of creating and cultivating a community of people that love each other well because they want to understand more of how Jesus loves us well. She adores leading bible studies and thrives in environments with a lot of people. In her free time, she can be found drinking coffee at any of the bazillion places in Winston, watching Disney movies, and chatting it up with random people.
Father Marcel Amadi
Father Marcel Amadi was born in Lagos, Nigeria and was ordained in 2003. He served as personal secretary to the Archbishop of Lagos, and also Archdiocesan Secretary and Master of Ceremonies for seven years. He published three books, including a book of his personal poems.
Following his archdiocesan services in Nigeria, Father Marcel came to the United States to pursue a master’s degree in pastoral care and counseling from Fordham University, New York, and he is now working on his doctoral degree in pastoral psychology. While studying at Fordham, he served as parochial vicar at St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Manhattan and as director of religious education in the parish. Having experienced God’s love as a small boy and through the years, especially from the example of other priests reaching out to those in need, Father Marcel is happy to be among university students today, spreading that love and faith.
