CELEBRATING 80 YEARS OF CHRIST CENTERED HIGHER EDUCATION

MY STORY

THE STORIES OF WILLIAM JESSUP UNIVERSITY

“The best way to change culture is to start a church. The best way to start a church is to start a college.”

-WILLIAM JESSUP, FOUNDER

THE PROVISION OF GOD

On the heels of a failed bid to use a hospital in Morgan Hill as a new campus, a door of opportunity opened for us to move to Rocklin. The rest is a thrilling story of God’s provision in fulfilling my dad’s vision and answer to the prayers of SJBC, SJCC, and finally WJU. All of this gives us hope for the future and power in the present. To God be the glory!

William Jessup University has moved forward only by the grace and provision of God.

ONE HUNDRED PERCENT MINISTRY…

A WAY OF LIFE

I have discovered that the ministry I bring to the marketplace comes through attitudes, actions, and acceptance of others. For me, success is not solely about earning the most money, titles, or accolades. Success is living every day in such a way that exhibits the love of Christ to those who ordinarily would not walk into a church. It is to see the hurting in the marketplace and pray, love, and care for them.

MY JESSUP FAMILY

I enjoy reflecting on what my college family has become and I am excited to see what the Lord will do with William Jessup University. I wait with great expectation to see what the campus will look like in 30 years. One thing is for sure, God will continue to call men and women out of their plans to follow His. Jessup’s communal strength will stand the test of time and other families, like mine, will tell stories of their devotion to educate transformational leaders.

Jessup has become my family and my family has become part of Jessup.

PRAYING

FOR JESSUP'S BEST FUTURE

God is moving in historic fashion at Jessup. For the first time in our history, we have fixed rate long-term debt financing. We celebrated our inaugural winter commencement and our spring ceremony with more graduating students than ever before. In addition to all this, we are seeing tremendous growth in our academic programs and reputation; our students are being accepted to premier graduate programs and gaining employment in prestigious positions in their chosen careers.
