Meet the Team

Joshua Arnold, M.Ed.

Senior Director of Student Development ASB, Student Development & Discipline, Student Retention & Success Strategies; Career Services

From the chapel at the top of the hill at Camp McPherson in Ohio to the residence halls and classrooms of Life Bible College East (now Ignite Academy), Joshua Arnold’s most formative years were spent within the Foursquare Church. Since graduating from LIFE East (’03) and Regent University (’07), he had the opportunity to serve in student life roles at several institutions of Christian higher education representing a broad range of faith traditions. Joshua and his family will be living on campus as Resident Directors.

“In his letter to the Christians at Thessalonica, Paul shares that, because we loved you so much, we were pleased to share with you not only the gospel of God but our very lives as well (1 Thess. 2:8). While I’m very much looking forward to helping students operationalize the truths they learn in the classroom and unpack the implications of the gospel for their whole lives, I’m most eager to open my heart to students and share in the common life of the LPC community.”

George Bostanic

Director of Residence Life

My wife Brittney and I are so excited to serve and lead the residence life program here at Life Pacific College. Living on-campus can be such a powerful and transformational time in a student’s life. I truly believe that students are developed holistically when they are learning both in and outside the classroom. Living on-campus, you learn what it means to live in a rich community with other students who are going through the same journey alongside you. It gives students the opportunity to hear and discover others perspectives, stories, and cultures in ways that they have never experienced before. The goal for our residence life program at Life Pacific College is to learn how to live life faithfully in everything we do no matter how big or small the task. 

Student Resources

At Life Pacific College, we believe that student activities provide an important point of connection and unity for students on campus. The Office of Student Life (OSL) intentionally designs our programs to help meet the social, cultural, recreational, intellectual, and spiritual needs of the LPC community. Students are encouraged to stop by the OSL in order to find out about opportunities for involvement and to learn about all of our upcoming events.

In addition to major events like Fall/Spring Retreats, Winter/Spring Socials and Homecoming, the Associated Student Body and the Office of Residence Life provide programs and events throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. Some examples include ongoing Intramural Sports, Broomball, The Good Life, the Turkey Bowl, Christmas Hall Decorating, Spring Spa, the Man Party, Chivalry Night and Finals Food. These are all great opportunities to enjoy fellowship, build community and take a break from the ever-present demands of being a college student.

Counseling Services

Be the best you, you can be. Find your voice.

Life Pacific College and the Office of Student Life are committed to the emotional and psychological well-being of our students along with their social, academic, and spiritual well-being. Therefore, we have created a network of referrals for students seeking support through counseling, clinics, organizations, and hot-lines.

If you are seeking counseling services, we refer students to our Counseling Center operating on campus called Emmaus Road Christian Counseling. You can view their website here: where you will find information about the counselors and how to contact each one.

Students wishing to utilize our referral service for clinics, organizations, and hot-lines are encouraged to download and fill out a counseling referral application and set up an appointment with the Director of Student Life and Operations. All conversations are held with the same high standard of confidentiality as the counseling profession itself.
