SCU Names New Vice President for Student Life

Mr. Brad Davis, a graduate of Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, has recently been appointed as SCU’s new Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students.  A native of Louisiana, Davis completed a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies at Southwestern in 1995 and earned his Master of Ministry in Leadership from the institution a decade later.  

Brad began his career as a ministry intern at the Northwest Christian Center in Oklahoma City and, in June of 1995, was hired as the youth pastor of the West Columbia Pentecostal Holiness Church in West Columbia, South Carolina.

 He has been the keynote speaker at a number of youth camps, ministered at various churches, led mission trips, co-founded the Midlands Youth Net (a network of youth ministers in Columbia), and served as the South Carolina Conference Youth Pastor and a member of the Discipleship Ministries Board.  He has also served as the Assistant Discipleship Ministries Director in the IPHC South Carolina Conference since 2010.  Most recently, Brad served as the Senior Pastor of the West Columbia church.

 "It is a great honor for me to return to the University that helped shape my life and ministry.  I am grateful to President Huckeby and his Cabinet for this opportunity to serve the students and faculty of SCU.  My family and I are excited about moving to Oklahoma and settling into SCU life."

"My heart is to see God move on the campus and in the lives of the students of SCU.  SCU is a Christian University with great values and support.  Knowing that I am part of a great team of educators, faculty, staff and coaches thrills my heart, because collectively we are helping to shape men and women to impact their world in ministry and in the marketplace."

Dr. Ed Huckeby, SCU President, indicated that “Brad Davis is the type of individual who will serve as a magnificent role model for our students and, at the same time, help mold them into the kind of graduates who will represent the University well after their years with us as students.”
