A Special Welcome to the Massey Leadership Center From President John Fozard
There are many ways that a university fulfills its mission. The most obvious way, of course, is by educating students and commissioning graduates to go into the world to practice the knowledge of their disciplines, their skills, and — in the case of our graduates — their faith.
At MACU, another way we fulfill our mission is through a network of strategic centers that extend our reach beyond our walls and into places of influence across the nation and around the world. The J.E. Massey Center for Ministry and Leadership reflects our commitment to not only train and educate pastors here on our campus, but also to be a worldwide resource to the church-at-large and especially to Church of God pastors and leaders.
It’s impossible to estimate the number of lives that Dr. James E. Massey touched and influenced in his lifetime of more than 60 years of ministry. I’m proud to say I am one of them. In seminary, Dr. Massey birthed and cultivated in each of his students a love for God’s Word and a careful attention to the accuracy of its presentation.
It is this careful attention to the meaning and preaching of God’s Word that earned Dr. Massey the title of “The Prince of Preachers” by those who know him best and love him most.
I trust that as you come to know Dr. James E. Massey through his generous writings and recordings, you will draw tremendous inspiration from his pursuit of knowledge, his devotion to and stewardship of the mysteries of God and his faithful service to his fellowman.
