Meet the President
Welcome to California Baptist University!
I understand that you have many choices as you consider where to enroll and appreciate your including CBU in your college search. As president of the university, I am committed to organizing CBU’s resources to give you an educational experience … an experience designed to equip you to excel in every part of your life and to fulfill your God-given calling.
CBU was founded more than 60 years ago with a mission to train the leaders who would take their knowledge, skills and experiences and use them to open doors for the Good News of Jesus Christ. Today, thousands of CBU graduates are glorifying God as they live out the Great Commission in churches, businesses, schools, hospitals, government agencies and on the mission field worldwide.
If you are seeking an educational experience that integrates academics with exciting spiritual growth and service opportunities, I believe CBU is an excellent choice. Whether you are a Baptist or not, CBU welcomes you to become a part of a growing, Christ-centered community of learners whose lives are making an eternal impact on the world.
May God bless your life as you seek to live your purpose!
Ronald L. Ellis, Ph.D., President
