Speakers

Barry Corey

Dr. Barry H. Corey became the eighth president of Biola University on July 1, 2007, officially launching the celebration of the University's centennial year.

Corey, a Massachusetts native with an extensive academic, fundraising and pastoral background, came to Biola from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton, Mass., where he served as vice president/chief academic officer and academic dean. In that role, he oversaw academic operations including faculty relations, curriculum development and degree/non-degree programs. Prior to that, he served as Gordon-Conwell's vice president for development, leading all external relations and fundraising programs - including a successful $54 million capital campaign.

Corey received a B.A. in English and biblical studies from Evangel University in Springfield, Mo., in 1984. In 1988, he received an M.A. in American Studies with a concentration in literature and religious history from Boston College's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Corey received a Ph.D. from Boston College in curriculum, instruction and administration (a higher education program) in 1992.

SMU Department

The Student Missionary Union (SMU) is the largest student-led missions organization in the United States. The 27 staff members and hundreds of volunteers are here to motivate and mobilize students to align their lives towards the completion of the Great Commission. SMU labors to mobilize students to catch a vision of God's desire for the world and passionately pursue their role in the incredible, real-life story that God began with Abraham and will end with the Messiah's second coming. Through prayer ministry, long-term and short-term missions, and Missions Conference, SMU desires to see each student walking in the fullness of the diverse ways God has created us to worship and serve Him.
