For more than a decade, I have had the privilege of working alongside the Board of Trustees and a team of 1,200 faculty and staff dedicated to our mission of preparing disciples and scholars to advance the work of God in the world.

I am deeply committed to this Christ-centered community and our shared vision to be “a premier Christian university and a recognized leader in higher education, a city on a hill that reflects the life of Christ and shines the light of Truth.”

I encourage you to explore and learn more about the leadership, mission, and vision of Azusa Pacific University.
