We hope you will join us in Washington, D.C. on May 30 for an exceptional reunion gathering generations of alums from all our Foursquare institutions.

Few college presidents have the pleasure of serving at their own alma meter. At Life Pacific College, most of our ten presidents claim that distinction. As I reflect on my life as a student, then faculty and administrator, and now as president, I am keenly aware of the importance of maintaining the vital relationships we develop over the years, especially those relationships formed while at LPC.
As a college, we have made improvements uniting our alumni from Foursquare institutions around the U.S. - Mt. Vernon Bible College, Life Bible College East, LPC-Ignite, and LIFE Bible College/Life Pacific College. Meeting ministry colleagues is a thrill for me and I look forward to regional and national reunions where we can gather for fellowship and encouragement.
I have found these gatherings so rewarding as new friends and old share memories of time spent in college, and, also about the many ways God has been faithful in our lives through the years. Beyond the joy of fellowship, we consider these alumni gatherings to be a time to honor one another as co-laborers in ministry, whether that ministry is in the local church or in the marketplace.
This brings me to an exciting opportunity for one and all alumni of our historic Foursquare colleges. Again this year we will gather during Foursquare Connection 2017 at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. for our Alumni Reunion Luncheon on Tuesday, May 30, at 12:30 pm. We are grateful that our Foursquare leadership always sets aside time for alumni gatherings like this at convention and we hope you will join us if you will be in our nation’s capital this year.
We encourage early registration as the venue this year has very limited capacity and we don’t want to miss seeing you at this reunion. Plan to bring the entire family, and share an enjoyable meal together as we catch up with friends from the past and make new acquaintances. Those with children in attendance will appreciate the deeply discounted meal price for the kids who will join us.
As a graduate of the LIFE Bible College class of 1977, I look forward to reuniting whenever possible with classmates, former professors, and colleagues who represent all our Foursquare institutions across the U.S. This year, we sense a prophetic call to gather in our nation’s capital at this strategic time in our nation’s history to strengthen one another and collectively proclaim the Name of Jesus to the world.
I hope you will join us for this alumni reunion!
Yes, it’s a rare distinction in American higher education to find college presidents who graduated from the school where they serve. I am honored, personally and professionally, by the distinction. Beyond that though, I am honored to serve you, our supporters, friends, and alumni, as I serve the Lord Jesus as president of Life Pacific College.
Looking forward to celebrating with you in Washington, D.C.
Register Now for the Alumni Reunion.
