Paul (86') and Laura (91') have spent the last 25 years serving as full time missionaries in Malawi, Ugnada, and Liberia. Paul is the president of African Bible Colleges and Laura is the Vice President of ABC Christian Academy in Malawi. Paul and Laura feel that their time at Biola prepared them to be missionally minded and experienced in higher Christian education.
There are 54 countries in Africa, and Paul explained that dozens of those are in need of a good evangelical Christian university. "This is what is needed in Africa - Christian Universities just like Biola ...This is what we have been doing for the past 25 years, and where Laura and I see ourselves for the next 25". The couple now resides in Mississippi, but continues overseeing and expanding the three bible colleges and developing relationships with churches. As a very missionally driven family, their daughter Annabelle, a current Biola student, was the Missions Conference coordinator this past year.
