In 2013, The King’s University celebrated a landmark year with the inauguration of the institution’s fourth President, Dr. Melanie J. Humphreys. A gifted and strategic leader, Dr. Humphreys took office on July 2, 2013 following a lengthy search process led by a team of King’s faculty, staff, students, Senate, and Board of Governors members. The search process was initiated by the retirement of President Emeritus Dr. J Harry Fernhout (2005-2013). Dr. Fernhout was preceded by Dr. Henk Van Andel (1985- 2005) and founding President Dr. Sidney DeWaal (1979-1983).
The King’s University exists to provide university education that inspires and equips learners to bring renewal and reconciliation to every walk of life as followers of Jesus Christ, the Servant-King.
