As the newly appointed president of Pacific Life Bible College, I am humbled and honoured to continue the college on its trajectory of success with integrity.
For the past 27 years, I have watched the college grow from a handful of students into the diverse and thriving educational environment it is today.
In 1985 I got a phone call that would begin my journey at the school. I was asked to help build a place to train leaders for the Kingdom of God. It seemed overwhelming at the time, but I have not looked back and have felt God’s leading throughout.
Over the years, PLBC’s desire and purpose has been the same. The mission of Pacific Life Bible College, as an institution of higher education, is to glorify God and fulfill His Great Commission by helping the church prepare men and women for Spirit-empowered, servant leadership within their churches, families, communities and chosen careers. I look forward to seeing our mission increase.
As a Foursquare institution, PLBC is grateful for the generous and supportive network of churches. I look forward to working with our Foursquare churches and ministries around the world.
I must also acknowledge and thank PLBC’s staff and faculty. The college has been blessed with a dedicated and skilled team of women and men who invest richly into the lives of our students.
Together, we will continue “Training Leaders to Make a World of Difference."
Dennis L. Hixson
The Board of Governors of Pacific Life Bible College (PLBC) announced on February 21, 2014 that Dennis L. Hixson has been appointed president of Pacific Life Bible College. The appointment was confirmed by the National Board of the Foursquare Gospel Church of Canada.
“Dennis has done a good job of running the college… He has an excellent working knowledge of the college and has a great team working with him,” said Steve Falkiner, chair of PLBC’s board of governors, in a press release. “The college has continued to see growth this year and we are expecting good things for the future.”
Dennis holds a bachelor’s degree from University of Idaho, Associate of Theology from Portland Bible College, Master of Theological Studies from Trinity Western Seminary and is a Registered Clinical Counselor. Serving Pacific Life since 1986 has afforded him an intimate knowledge of PLBC’s systems and trusted rapport with students, faculty and staff.
In an interview with Hixson, he shared, “PLBC has an excellent history of training leaders to make a world of difference. I’m honoured to serve a school with such a special history and important future.”
PLBC’s director of student life, Clint Nelson, said, “No one in PLBC’s history has a bigger heart for the students or a greater desire to see men and women discover and develop their calling. Dennis wears his heart on his sleeve every day. His passion and work ethic are contagious.”
A formal installation service will be announced at a later date. Please continue to pray for the mission and community of PLBC.
