Each week in Wednesday Wisdom Chapel, we hear from speakers whose specializations and experience bring us biblically-based wisdom for Christian engagement in the arts and culture, reconciliation, missions and evangelism, justice, relationships, spiritual formation and other relevant topics. Come join us as we gather together as a community to pray, “Thy Kingdom Come” in all these areas of our lives.

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.
