Te Bible speaks to our future from Genesis to Revelation. As Christians, we know our hope is in the Lord. Repeatedly, God’s word reminds us to be expectant and hopeful about the future. Many exciting things are happening as the university continues to grow and expand. Te following pages provide a snapshot of futuristic views on various academic perspectives, technology, students’ frame of reference, and Jessup’s impact in the community and the churches as well as local and global outreach.


Only God knows the future. For us, there is a presumed uncertainty about tomorrow. One thing is for sure however, moving ahead is always better done by keeping in mind where we’ve been. And, who we’ve been. A clear recollection of our heritage and a sturdy commitment to our original mission is crucial to staying the course in ways that God can bless. For Jessup, it’s simple: Christ-centered higher education.

Historically, for schools like ours, such progressive continuity has been the mandate of the President and the Bible and Teology department. Gladly, at WJU, that responsibility is owned by all faculty, administration and staff. But, lessons to be learned abound. Harvard University, for example, began with noble intentions. Its original mission statement in 1636 reads: “Let every student be plainly instructed and firmly pressed to consider well that the end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, and therefore to lay Christ

as the only foundation of all knowledge and learning.” Sadly, within a generation, Harvard began to lose its grip on that lofty goal, and today is a completely secularized institution. Its original motto, “For Christ and the Church”, long since abandoned.

Te Bible and Teology and Ministry Division at Jessup gladly accepts the responsibility to help lead the way in fulfilling our founders’ vision, being proactive about the opportunities that lie ahead.
