The College of Biblical Studies Leadership

God has graciously provided the College of Biblical Studies with deeply faithful Christian leaders who have a common desire to deliver exceptional transformational education. These leaders possess a superior blend of skills and talents that uniquely position CBS as a leader in launching thousands of knowledgeable students who have a deeper relationship with Christ, a fuller understanding of the Bible and will bring a biblical worldview to bear on some of the world’s toughest challenges.

Committed to our mission of glorifying God by educating and equipping multi-ethnic students to impact the world for Christ, the College of Biblical Studies believes we must deliver an exceptional quality education. As a result, this will allow us to develop Godly leaders, respectful citizens, and impactful servants to the body of Christ.
