Reflecting what has become a cornerstone of his presidency, Jon R. Wallace, DBA, challenges the Azusa Pacific University community to intentionally pursue shalom. The Christian faith stands on a foundation of Truth, and at that core lies the transformational reality of shalom extended to us through the work of Jesus Christ.

President Wallace continues to challenge the trustees, faculty, staff, and students to pursue shalom, allowing God’s peace to be evident at work, in classrooms, at home, and in the fabric of our relationships. By living within the peace (shalom) of Jesus, we seek to extend that peace (shalom) to our neighbors.
