Lake Wales, Fla. — Warner University President David A. Hoag has recently been named to the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) board. 

After being approached by CCCU President Shirley V. Hoogstra to prayerfully consider having his name put forth as a candidate, President Hoag agreed, and was then voted in as a new board member, effective March 2021 for a three-year term. Hoag is one of 19 members on the Board of Directors.

The CCCU represents over 520,000 students enrolled globally each year. The CCCU’s mission is to advance the cause of Christ-centered higher education and to help its institutions transform lives by faithfully relating scholarship and service to biblical truth.

“I’ve spent my entire career working at Christian institutions that have been a part of the CCCU,” said Hoag.  “Being asked to serve on the board of directors of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities is an incredible honor.  I look forward to representing more than 140 institutions in this role during these very critical times.”

“President Hoag is showing his dedication to the entire Christian higher education community with his role at the CCCU,” said Andrea Thies, vice president for advancement and admissions. “We are proud of him for taking this step to support Warner University and protect our religious freedoms.”

The CCCU provides unique services for administration, faculty, students, and friends of Christian higher education in three pillars of strategic focus: public advocacy, professional development and scholarship, and experiential education.
