Ronschall Love is the new program assistant in the African American Cultural Center. Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Love attended Elohim Bible College, St. Louis, Missouri, where she studied theology and earned a master’s of arts in Christian counseling. Before coming to NC State, Love worked for the federal government as a program coordinator for the Department of the Army in the Mission Support Office based in Kansas City, Missouri.
Love’s passions are community service, volunteer work and being active in the Christian community. She is a licensed minister and serves alongside her pastor husband, providing support and mentoring married couples. She has a particular interest in ministering to young women and “encouraging them to find their God-Given potential and walk out the purpose and the destiny ordained for them,” she states. Since coming to the area, Love has been involved in serving in the community and volunteering at the Raleigh Rescue Mission, feeding the homeless and ministering to young single mothers. Love is also an active member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
In her new position, Love looks forward to interacting with students and making a positive impact in their lives. She says, “Seeing them succeed is the greatest reward for me – if I can be part of their success and help write a small chapter in their book of life, that is my reward.” Coming to NC State, Love knew that her new position would not just be her job; it would be her ministry, her passion. She cites one of her favorite inspirational quotes by Maya Angelou: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
When she is not on campus you will find her enjoying lots of “retail therapy,” “ministering through praise and worship” and enjoying time with her family.
