Historically, The Master’s University and Seminary has enjoyed the tenure of faithful presidents. Each of them has ensured that this institution remains committed to Christ and Scripture.
The Master’s University and Seminary president embodies the following:
First and foremost, the president of TMUS is a stalwart for the doctrinal fidelity of the organization. He affirms the institution’s doctrinal statement without qualification, upholds it without reservation, and competently defends it. He models these theological convictions by being elder-qualified (cf. 1 Timothy 3; Titus 1) and is committed to the priority of the local church as evidenced by his active service in a local congregation.
Furthermore, the president has a passion for the educational mission of The Master’s University and Seminary. He thoroughly grasps the intensity of the institution’s commitment to the lordship of Christ in learning. At TMUS, Scripture is authoritative, not only over every discipline but also over how those disciplines are inculcated inside and outside the classroom. Faculty and staff do not simply distill truth but invest their very lives in shaping the hearts and minds of students. The goal of such instruction goes beyond an intellectual pursuit. It commits all thought, vocation, and life to the glory of God. Such an education is inextricably linked with the liberal arts. The president is a compelling champion for this Christ-centered education as he articulates, exemplifies, and cultivates it both on and off campus.
The president is prepared to face the present and upcoming challenges in Christian higher education, and knows how to formulate a decisive strategy to guide TMUS to continued faithfulness. He is a gifted administrator. He discerns the threats and opportunities of the current theological, political, and educational landscape. He understands the operations of the school in the areas of finance, enrollment, education, accreditation, and compliance. He gives direction in these areas. Within this responsibility, he represents the institution to the board of directors, acknowledge his accountability to them, and collaborates with them to chart the course for the campus. He also raises up an executive team that will assist in implementing this plan. Even more, his leadership motivates faculty, staff, and students to wholeheartedly participate in carrying out this agenda. The president is approachable and encourages openness in the decision-making process, yet makes timely and difficult decisions.
The president must equally exert leadership among external constituencies. He is the face of the institution to both the local community and the broader evangelical world. He is an articulate and winsome spokesman for the school. As such, he helps to maintain a positive relationship with alumni. He represents the institution to donors, builds trust with outside parties, and inspires investment in the ministry of the school. The president works with the development department to build and leverage partnerships that expand the institution’s opportunities.
