Legacy. Leadership. Looking Forward.
As Dr. Nord enters into the Office of the President, The Corban community wants to emphasize our rich past, be aware of our present and look to the future.
The Past: A Rich Legacy
The Office of the President has been occupied by leaders who have sought God’s wisdom to cast a vision for great things, thrive on challenges and lead through both good and difficult times. Corban’s past leadership has maintained and built a powerful foundation of the Word of God, prayer and Christian principles. In this website you will find an entire section dedicated to these great men and their stories.
The Present: The Call to Leadership
Dr. Nord, with Corban’s rich and refined legacy of presidents, has taken the call to lead. His personal walk with the Lord, the support of his family and friends, his education and previous positions have made this a God-honoring opportunity.
"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who in the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least falls while daring greatly…" -- Theodore Roosevelt, U.S. President
The Future: Looking Forward
Corban University’s future is bright and our mission is secure as we strive to educate Christian students for life and service. Please join us in celebrating this new season for Corban University.
