Spiritual Formation is the heart of our concern for Vanguard!
First, my top priorities:
- Define and articulate how our unique Pentecostal spirituality will be nurtured and passed on in a university setting.
- Develop new avenues of partnership between Vanguard, as a university, with local churches and pastors.
- Collaborate with the SoCal Network in connecting Vanguard students with Network churches and lay leaders in ministry internships.
Why does this matter to me, and what background do I bring to this post?
Born with a heritage of Mid-western circuit riding preachers and church planters, I found my time at Vanguard as being formative in life and ministry. It was at Vanguard where I met my wife. Now our kids attend Vanguard!
