"Whether George Fox students are participating in events such as Serve Day, attending a foreign exchange program, or working on mission trips, they are each called to share their gifts with others. Our motto at George Fox University is 'Be Known.' I believe this is not merely a marketing slogan but a truly important value."
"I see God at work in the obvious caring faith of professors and administrators as they endeavor to educate and to have intentional faith development occur.
