Boldy Christian. Unquestionably Academic. These four words sum up what Evangel is all about. As the national university of arts, sciences and professions of the Assemblies of God, Evangel's focus is to train young people for leadership positions in business, government, church and home.


Today, more than 24,000 alumni are serving around the world, including such prominent graduates as Dr. George O. Wood, general superintendent of the Assemblies of God; acclaimed singer/songwriter Sara Groves; N.Y. Times best-selling author Beverly Lewis; renowned cardio thoracic surgeon and artificial heart pioneer Dr. James Long; The Honorable Sam Der-Yeghiayan, Federal Judge, Chicago, Ill.; and Kevin Compton, owner of The San Jose Sharks (NHL).


The university recently completed an extensive campus development program, with nine major construction projects since 1997, including two three-story academic buildings, a student fitness center, the massive Barnett Fine Arts Center and the new administration building, Riggs Hall. Evangel is a residential university, drawing more than 2,100 students from all 50 states and many foreign countries.
