Don Murray is lead pastor at Mountain Gate Fellowship in Norco, California. In addition to teaching at Azusa Pacific, he teaches public speaking at California Baptist University.

Murray began teaching at APU in the fall of 2000, shortly after completing his doctorate. With a background in master's-level work in communication combined with his experience preaching, Murray brings a wealth of knowledge to the classroom and a personal conviction that no other course holds greater potential to advance one’s life and/or career than clear oral communication. He still finds teaching is his passion, even after all these years.
