2022 President’s Report
A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made,” writes the psalmist. “My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.” (Psalm 139:14a,15, ESV)
At Jessup, our mission has always been to partner with the Church to educate Christ-centered transformational leaders for God’s glory. Even as our culture faces turbulence and challenges, we believe the opportunity of the moment is for us to be clearer and more consistent than ever in our history. Jessup is a place that creates and sustains legacy impact for all eternity, and we do that in such a way that students are equipped for life and known for who they are and who they are becoming.
Students here discover their God-given purpose and pursue careers that make a difference in the lives of others. This learning happens in a powerful Christ-centered community where faculty and staff mentor our students in faith and life. Because of Jessup’s unwavering commitment to equipping our students with faith, these students are positioned to impact their local and global communities more than ever as we witness the growing need to bring the love, care, and hope of Christ’s salvation to the people around us. We also joyfully continue to see growth when it comes to new programs. Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree launches in Spring 2023 and will further strengthen our outreach to the healthcare sector. God has yet again been gracious to us. I am convinced that when we educate men and women with a Christ-centered foundation, we will see an extraordinary kingdom impact for generations to come. You are part of building legacy in the lives of students that you may not know but whose stories you are shaping.
As always, I appreciate your dedication to our University’s mission. Thank you for joining us as we continue to place our trust in the God who loves us and watches over us each new day.
John Jackson, Ph.D.
