André Stephens, Ph.D., president of Fresno Pacific University, and David Janzen, Ph.D., president of Tabor College, discuss the challenges of Christian higher education on the latest LEAD PODS Podcast.

LEAD Pods is the official leadership podcast of the United States Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (USMB) and FPU and Tabor, located in Kansas, are the two MB-affiliated institutions of higher education in the United States.

Stephens is in his second year as FPU president and Janzen is in his third year leading Tabor. The 46-minute podcast—hosted by Matt Ehresman, communications & online engagement director at Ridgepoint Church, Wichita, KS—covers a lot of ground as each president:

  • shares encouraging updates about the spiritual climates on their campuses
  • describes efforts to prepare future leaders of the church
  • addresses the costs of college and how both Fresno and Tabor are actually more affordable than many think
