Life Pacific University faculty members had the honor of contributing to the special edition of the Journal of World Alliance for Pentecostal Theological Education (WAPTE), celebrating a century of the Foursquare Gospel.

Foursquare pastor and friend of LPU, Gary Matsdorf served as a guest editor for this Pentecostal Education journal. He partnered with LPU as Foursquare’s university to contribute to this theological reflection on 100 years of the Foursquare movement.

Our very own Provost, Dr. Daniel Ruarte, and our Director of Hispanic Programs and Initiatives, Dr. Hugo Aldana, wrote an article entitled Foursquare Hispanics: Distinctives of a Growing Community within Foursquare. 

Beloved professor, Rev. Jennifer Thigpenn, published an article titled Foursquare and Reconciliation. 

Life Pacific University Virginia professors Ryan Lytton, M.A. and Gretchen Abney, M.A. contributed with powerful book reviews.

LPU continues to engage in Pentecostal theological education both nationally and globally. The university is honored to have world-class faculty that use their intellect and callings to further the Kingdom of God through education.
