He will address students, faculty, staff and coaches on Tuesday, January 13 at 10:50 a.m. Service will be held in the Minchew Auditorium, SCU campus. The public is invited to attend.

Wenyika is in his first year as president at SCU.

During his leadership, Wenyika has voiced the mantra “Soar High and Beyond” challenging students, faculty, staff, parents and external constituents of SCU to push past their preconceived limits and test themselves in ways that will accelerate the breadth, width and depth of the university’s reach in impacting the world for Jesus Christ.
