Supporting God’s faithfulness in Christ-centered Higher Education

“Today we are seeing the outward manifestation of the inner grace that God is pouring out on William Jessup University,” says Dr. John Jackson. One of our most evident visuals of God’s grace is our President’s Circle members. This group of friends, alumni and organizations play a vital role in the Christ-centered mission of WJU.”

The President’s Circle is made up of generous men and women who have a passion for Christ-centered higher education and its role in redeeming world culture to the glory of God. As friends, parents, faculty, organizations and alumni, President’s Circle partners support Jessup through their finances and prayer, and connect more deeply with the university through special President’s Circle events and communications.


President’s Circle Membership - One Scholarship at a Time

President’s Circle membership begins with an annual giving level of $1,000. One thousand dollars is not just a number; instead it represents accessibility and affordability as one thousand dollars is equal to one new scholarship per year. Participating President’s Circle members are integral to the mission of Jessup as we prepare future leaders in ministry, family, government, education, business, healthcare and arts. Through your generosity, future leaders are afforded the opportunity to receive a quality Christ-centered higher education founded upon biblical world-views that will forever shape their personal and professional lives. President’s Circle giving over a four-year time period, at a minimum, pays for 25% of a student’s educational cost.
