Roman Fedin

Roman Fedin

High School: Grades 9-10, Silver and Silver +

Roman Fedin has been working in the counseling field since 2010 working with adults affected by drug and alcohol addictions and mental health. He completed his AAS Degree from Spokane Falls Community College in Chemical Dependency and completed his Undergraduate degree in Social Services at Whitworth University, as well as his Graduate Program in School Counseling in 2017.

His goal in life is to glorify God in his work and with people and to learn to love others. Roman enjoys the outdoors and working on cars in his freetime. When he was 17 years old, he had a spinal cord injury that changed his life; being a person with a disability helped him understand and sympathize with others who may also be struggling with challenging conditions. He believes God’s grace provides in times of weakness, and being strong in Christ is what has brought him to where he is today.

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-11
