Our leadership provides the direction, vision and accountability that has kept us true to our mission and His mandate for over 115 years.
Our entire leadership team gives oversight to all the areas of campus life.
They each seek to create a culture of leadership that is modeled on the Word of God. At the same time this culture is lived out in a way that prepares our students for servant leadership.
