 Board Members Pursue Excellence

The Board of Directors has added several new members in the past few years. There are now 14 members, representing various occupations and locations in their service to the College. Their oversight, generosity, and prayers are an important part of the College’s ministry. Eight new members have joined the group since 2015, each bringing different areas of competency and a high level of commitment to Central Christian College of the Bible.

Four newer members committed to attending a series of “Excellence in Board Governance” seminars sponsored by the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). The first event was held October 3-4 at the home offices of ABHE in Orlando, Florida. It included workshops offered by several veteran leaders in Christian higher education. CCCB is one of 10 colleges and universities benefiting this year from a generous grant by the Murdock Charitable Trust, making this valuable experience available at a very low cost to the institutions involved.

These Board members have also been named the Board Planning Team, working together to identify strategic action steps to advance the quality of our Board, all its members, and the institution as a whole. The Board members were joined for the training by President David Fincher. They are all being coached during the year by Dr. John Derry, President Emeritus of Hope
International University. Dr. Derry’s insight and investment into these members will increase the overall understanding of Board governance and visionary leadership at Central Christian College of the Bible.
