My study at Bakke Graduate University (BGU) was life changing. BGU has staff and students in 50 nations. She has a unique and innovative program through synergising transformational leadership, urban development, business and theology. I’ve served on the Regional Advisory Board after finishing my DMin degree in 2013. A privilege.


I was a joy to meet BK and his wife Betty face-to-face, while visiting LA September 2015.

Faculty. This year I joined as faculty, and supervised BK Park (American/Korean). In California BK pastored a church, and also worked as a journalist. His dissertation covered his vision to move to South Korea to set up a journalism / discipleship training school. As Koreans will become followers of Jesus in the workplace, they will change their work environment and the media-world, but also the view of missions and church culture. I was impressed by his vision and dedication.

Publishing. Like BK, many of BGU’s students and alumni are involved in innovative and strategic ministries. Their insights through research, academic thinking and practical application would benefit  God’s people in other parts of the world. Some of these stories need to be told. Together with BGU and a publishing house we’re researching the possibilities. The aim is to inspire, encourage and enable, since ‘ideas tend to get feet’. Especially good ideas – God ideas!

Bakke Graduate University. BGU’s global community connects through online courses and urban immersion experiences in the largest cities on four continents. Her students are mentored by front-line world leaders in customized US accredited masters and doctoral degrees.
