An Interview with Wally Buono and Christie Buono Schlecker Before the whistle blows and the BC Lions storm the field, head coach Wally Buono walks to the 50-yard line where his daughter, Christie Buono Schlecker, waits for him. She passes him a small piece of paper, they hug, and each turn back to go their […]
From 7am to 5pm throughout the school year, I wear a briefcase. Throughout the summer and during weekends and evenings the rest of the year, I wear a camera bag. With two seemingly different jobs, I have recently begun looking for similarities; why I feel so passionate about each. What I’ve come to realize is that each of these jobs is founded on the sole beauty of creativity. Without the presence of a creative mind, I simply would not succeed in either profession.
If you’re close to my husband and I, you know how challenging the period between August 2015 – February 2016 was for us (okay, definitely longer if I’m being completely honest). But since you’re reading this article on Trinity Western’s Alumni page and I only graced Trinity’s campus for a brief 4 years and the […]
My past year of “post-grad-transition” has been a slew of (empirically appraised) “irrational” life decisions. In my defence, I appeal to a Brian Andreas quote my roommates and I have hanging above our kitchen sink (the holiest of spaces)…
“I immediately thought, why am I sitting here thinking I can’t manage both roles when there are examples of women who can?

I also don’t want to make it seem like my time in the Philippines was only painful. In truth it was the best year of my life. The vast majority of our operations were successful, and we managed to help local law enforcement rescue hundreds of trafficking victims that year.
I vividly remember the first time I visited Trinity Western University. I was in my first semester at SFU, and having a hard time adjusting to life after high school. My mom (a wise woman) strongly suggested that I attend a View Day to explore the option of transferring to TWU. The moment I stepped […]
For someone who exercises the ordering of his days with obsessive detail, I remain refreshed upon reflecting that it has been the naïve, unaware instances that have truly marked the turning points in my life.
In 2011, I was appointed as the spokesperson of a court, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, established by the United Nations Security Council, to prosecute a series of terrorist attacks.
After Trinity Western University, with a major in History and Political Science, my sense of empathy and life in Africa merged when I founded The Wanted Children Foundation (TWCF) based in Nigeria.
Owning my own business has always been a far-fetched dream, and certainly not something I ever thought possible. But here I am, a professional wedding photographer not only pursuing that dream, but by the grace of God, achieving it.
On October 22, 2014, downtown Ottawa came to a literal stop: roads were shut down, buildings were put under lockdown, and cops were placed on every corner.
“At Trinity Western University, you’ll be a name not just a student number.” A simple statement, but one with profound implications – a statement that encapsulates the experience I felt I encountered in a very full way at TWU.
Our desire is to impact the local church in North America as well as evangelize the nations.
