Kameron Wiebe grew up near Whitewater, Kansas and stepped onto the campus of Calvary University in the fall of 2015 in search of learning biblical truth. Mediocrity was never the solution for Kameron as he desired to take possession of his beliefs and make his faith his own.
His expectations were high, as he was the last of five siblings, belonging to Lyle and Lenora Wiebe, to attend Calvary. When people asked Kameron why he came to Calvary he would humbly reply, “To have a better understanding of the Bible.” Kameron chose to enroll at Calvary because he realized, like all other Christians, he needed to grow in his own faith. Kameron was never one to be satisfied with half-hearted answers, and the solid teaching at Calvary was what he needed and desired.
During his two years at Calvary he received stellar teaching, and those closest to him saw the growth that occurred in Kameron’s spiritual life. Many of the questions he had were answered through “rightly divided truth” in the classroom. His pondering soon turned to confidence, and his walk with the Lord quickly turned into a run!
In daily conversations about his faith, Kameron communicated first-hand how his questions were being answered and his faith was becoming stronger. He once told his expected fiancé Tasha, “If God is for us, we can get through anything!” He wanted nothing more than to keep God in the center of his life and to deepen his commitment to the Lord while at Calvary University.
Kameron completed two years of preparation at Calvary, and his plans were to go on a mission trip to Mongolia, marry Tasha Krahn, and minister in his local church while farming with his dad and brother. Kameron lived out his faith with quietness and confidence, inspiring others to want to follow his example.
We did not realize how soon Kameron would finish his race here on earth. God had a different plan for him (Jer. 29:11). On June 30, 2017, Kameron and his cousin, Caleb Neal, were ushered into God’s presence as a result of a car accident (just 6 weeks after finishing his 2 nd year at Calvary and 3 days before leaving on his mission trip). This tragedy impacted the campus of Calvary University in major ways as Kameron’s impact became his lasting legacy to the students, staff, and faculty of Calvary University.
The Kameron Wiebe Layman Scholarship was developed to honor the life of a servant who lived his life well. The purpose of this scholarship is to aid students who want to come to Calvary University to grow in their faith and be equipped to better serve in their local church and community. Calvary University and Kameron’s family hope and pray that this scholarship will help many other college students in the future to write a similar story of faith as God works in and through their lives.
