Riddle Returns to Thiel College as Campus Pastor

Brian Riddle, a 2007 graduate of Thiel College, has returned to campus as its pastor. Riddle followed an unconventional path back to his alma mater and comes to the college from St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cambridge Springs, Pa. He attended culinary school in Scottsdale, Ariz., but after feeling a call to ministry, he returned to his home state of Pennsylvania to attend Thiel College in 2004. Upon graduation, he went to Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus and earned a masters in divinity. As campus pastor, he is focusing on new initiatives and goals to strengthen Thiel’s connection as a Lutheran College. “Thiel provides a home, direction, and purpose,” he says.
