Welcome to the Office of Advancement!

Our mission statement at Southwestern Adventist University is “Inspiring Knowledge, Faith, and Service through Christ-Centered Education.”  This team not only takes this calling seriously on this campus, but our mission is to take this same bold statement to our surrounding communities.  After all if you look at when our institutions started they were built for their communities.  So whether you physically visit our offices in person or visit us through our many different on-line sources, I pray that you will see us living out our mission to inspire our community with this same mission.  We are a new young team, with many goals and aspirations so please continue to keep us in your prayers.  Then sit back and watch what God can do!
