In the Gospel of John we read of how Jesus became flesh and tabernacled among us. Our goal is to lead HBU in Christ-centered teaching, service and research so that the “…true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man” (John 1:9) can be more fully known by our students and communities. As part of being a comprehensive university we are committed to developing excellent programs in all areas of the human experience as “All things came into being through [Jesus], and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being” (John 1:3). I am excited about HBU’s vision and all the great work being done by our faculty and staff. My prayer is that the Light of the world and His grace will bless you as you participate in the life of the university.
