“In addition to achieving academic excellence in a Christian Liberal Arts University, and while adhering to and celebrating our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage, we will continue to rely upon God’s faithful presence amidst today’s dynamic marketplace,” Brown said, after the Asbury Board of Trustees selected him as president.
Brown succeeds Dr. Sandra C. Gray, who retired last summer.
“He has long been an important voice on our campus. He articulates the Asbury University mission, vision and Wesleyan-Holiness commitment with great conviction and passion,” Gray said.
