I embrace my role as vice president and dean of Portland Seminary with a deep awareness of God's calling to be here. What energizes me most about life at George Fox is the opportunity to serve with the "Crème de la crème" of Christ's followers. Our staff and faculty are the best of the best; our students represent the most dedicated servants of Jesus Christ. Every member of the George Fox University community is committed to the institution's shared mission to be a Christ-centered community that “prepares students spiritually, academically, and professionally to think with clarity, act with integrity, and serve with passion.”

I am grateful to be a part of this great enterprise and invite you to join us in our efforts to faithfully serve Christ on behalf of the church and the world.
