Office of the President – Steve Pettit

Steve Pettit

If Steve Pettit were to summarize his role as president of Bob Jones University in a word, that word would be service. But it’s not a type of service that has its ultimate end in BJU. Rather, he sees BJU as educating people who are Gospel-oriented. “They are God’s people walking around in this world as pilgrims on their way towards Heaven,” he says, “spreading the light of the Gospel wherever they go.”

His desire is to see the entire university community embody this vision. “It’s about developing people with a kind of character that serves and loves people. So love has to be modeled by everybody that works and teaches here. A disciple-maker and a leader are not two different things. They are the same thing.”
