Our Board of Trustees

Those of us who have been entrusted with leadership roles at Western are united by a shared passion for training agents of gospel-centered transformation. Recognizing the unmatched power of the biblical gospel to deliver humanity from the positional and practical consequences of sin, we seek to be used by the Spirit to nurture each year hundreds of men and women who will be marked both by confidence in its transforming power and competence in applying its truths to all of life. Whether it is in the classroom or tending to the administrative details that accompany operating a graduate school, we want to be good stewards of the people, truth, and resources that God has graciously entrusted to us. In so doing, we seek to model the faithfulness and fruitfulness that we also desire for our graduates. We are grateful for the privilege to be co-laborers with God and with one another in offering trustworthy and accessible training for gospel-centered transformation.
