Faculty Profile

Dr. Ray Easley

Dean of the Schools of Education & Leadership

Having served more than thirty years in higher educational ministry, I am seeking to give educational leadership to the global church by equipping organizational leaders who, in turn, can guide their organizations in reaching their full potential. I have given academic leadership at both undergraduate and graduate levels; have directed three institutional self-studies in pursuit of national accreditation; led the design and establishment of a graduate school distance education program; consulted with theological schools and leaders internationally; written and taught a variety of practical theological and basic biblical study courses. As a life-long learner, I have recently self-acquired competency with AutoCAD Civil 3D & AutoDesk REVIT! Most of all, I have a desire to walk with God each day. And when tomorrow becomes today, I will be walking with God on that today!
