William Jessup University Commencement May 17th in Roseville

William Jessup University, the first WASC accredited private, four-year residential Christian Liberal Arts University in the greater Sacramento region will celebrate its annual Commencement on Saturday, May 17 from 10 a.m. to noon at Adventure Christian Church in Roseville. 

"Jessup students graduating in 2014 are equipped and ready to impact their world for the glory of God in the local church, the marketplace, at home, in our communities, locally and globally," said Dr. John Jackson, president of the 75 year-old university.

 Approximately 257 students are graduating this May with the majority of graduates receiving psychology, business and ministry related bachelor degrees. This year marks the ninth graduation ceremony celebrated by the university since its move to Rocklin in 2004. 

Dr. Jack Hayford will deliver the 2014 commencement keynote address. 

Pastor Jack Hayford is Chancellor of The Kings University (formerly The King's College and Seminary) in Los Angeles, which he founded in 1997.  He is probably best known, however, as "Pastor Jack," founding pastor of The Church On The Way in Van Nuys, Calif., where he served as senior pastor for more than three decades.

A prolific and best-selling author, Pastor Hayford has penned more than 100 books and composed nearly 600 hymns and choruses, including the internationally known and widely recorded "Majesty."

He also served a five-year term as President of The International Church of the Foursquare Gospel from 2004-2009 and has been instrumental in his work with the Promise Keepers movement that challenges men to embrace their calling to lead their families, churches and communities in worship of, and obedience to Jesus Christ. 

Hayford is an acknowledged "bridge-builder," helping to forge healthy bonds among all segments of the Body of Christ. He is recognized for his balance in preaching God's word, and avoiding extremes while not diluting or compromising the demands of truth.

Pastor Jack's heart to bring unity across all denominational and racial boundaries has given him an open door to minister in a variety of settings.

In addition, Dr. G. Henry Wells will be awarded an honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree. This is the third honorary degree bestowed by the growing university during it's 75-year history.
