SAN DIMAS, Calif. – Life Pacific College announced the newest member of its full-time faculty, Dr. Henry Kyeyune. Dr. Kyeyune has been chosen as the founding chair of the B.A. in Communication (set to launch, pending accreditor approval, in fall of 2017).

Dr. Michael Salmeier, Vice President for Academic Affairs, states, “Dr. Kyeyune’s education, experience, and ministry commitment make him a great fit for Life Pacific and our new Communication program. We welcome him as he leads this program dedicated to helping students prepare to be those who communicate Christ effectively and creatively in diverse fields.”

Dr. Kyeyune received his Ph.D. in Mass Communication and Media Arts from Southern Illinois University. He also holds masters degrees in Communication from Wheaton College and in Christian Ministries from Daystar University in Kenya. Dr. Kyeyune taught communication at Daystar University for 12 years.

Growing up in an Anglican church, Kyeyune came to Christ in his late teens. He says, “After my conversion experience and later baptism in the Holy Spirit, I had a thirst to grow in the knowledge and love of God and I attended bible studies, discipleship classes and fellowships consistently.” He continues, “At Kampala Pentecostal Church, I quickly got involved in youth ministry and evangelism. I also felt the need to be equipped to communicate the gospel using various media. God led me to pursue an education in schools that recognized the need to integrate faith and learning in every aspect of life. He also placed a desire in my heart to train and equip other people, to have a positive Godly impact on society.”
