Husbands was selected by the Board of Governors as their unanimous first choice after an extensive search was conducted, in which key stakeholders and internal constituents of the University participated.
“I'm terribly excited about coming here. I've learned so much about the kind of impact that Trinity Western has on students” continued Husbands, “Helping students to know and to love God with all of their hearts, minds, body, and soul. There is no greater vision. It’s the vision of serving Christ.”
Husbands comes to TWU from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa where he serves as Vice President for Academic Affairs. Prior to joining Northwestern’s administration, he was the Leonard and Marjorie Maas Chair of Reformed Theology and Director of the Emmaus Scholars Program at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. His experience also includes six years as Assistant Professor of Theology at Wheaton College in Chicago, Illinois, and two years at Tyndale University College and Seminary in Toronto, Ontario, where he taught theology and directed its extension education and summer school.
“Mark has the credentials and experience to provide distinguished leadership, but more importantly, he has the heart and passion to provide servant leadership to our University and to advance the evangelical mission of TWU,” said Lorne Jacobson, Chairman of the Board.
