The College of Biblical Studies Leadership

Leadership of the College of Biblical Studies 

God has graciously provided the College of Biblical Studies with deeply faithful Christian leaders who have a common desire to deliver exceptional transformational education. These leaders possess a superior blend of skills and talents that uniquely position CBS as a leader in launching thousands of knowledgeable students who have a deeper relationship with Christ, a fuller understanding of the Bible and will bring a biblical worldview to bear on some of the world’s toughest challenges – starting right here in Houston. Committed to our mission of providing a biblically-based education for the Body of Christ and equipping our students with a biblical worldview for Christian service to the church and the world, the College of Biblical Studies believes we must deliver an exceptional quality education. As a result, this will allow us to develop Godly leaders, respectful citizens and impactful servants to the body of Christ.
