CIU Leadership

Our Faculty

Teaching is more than just a job at CIU – it’s a ministry. Here you’ll find small classes led by been-there, done-that professors passionate about their faith and your education.

Take a trip through our faculty directory and you’ll find:

  • Experienced church builders who now teach real-world church planting. (When they’re not out doing it themselves.)

  • Biblical scholars steeped in ancient languages and the modern faith continuing their learning together with students in classrooms and libraries, online and in person.

  • Missionaries back from serving Christ among the unreached in challenging environs around the globe now sharing how they did it, and how you can, too.

  • Business people and educators demonstrate how to bring the message of hope into the marketplace and the classroom.

Dr. Bill Jones, president of CIUOur President

The spiritual drive begins at the top at CIU. Our sixth president, Dr. Bill Jones, has long committed his life to Christ and Christian learners.

Jones came to CIU as an adult student in 1987 and after earning his doctorate here, became an accomplished evangelist, sought-after speaker, author and church builder before adding “president of CIU” to his duties.

Our president reflects who we are at CIU. He’s personable and passionate, committed to scholarship, community and missions. These are character qualities that find fertile ground for growth at CIU as they are lived out before the student body.
