5th President of Evangel University

 As I serve as the President, I rely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit to chart the course for EU. I recognize the Spirit as the source of empowerment and inspiration for all believers and I have placed special emphasis on building a university experience that immerses students in the Spirit’s presence.

From powerful chapel services to special times of fellowship and fun, I am engaged in the work of introducing EU students to the power of the Holy Spirit in their everyday lives.
