Join us as we celebrate our Founder’s Week.
Celebrate the day Pacific Bible College (now Warner Pacific College) opened its doors, October 5, 1937.
This year, we’re honoring a milestone birthday by asking alumni and friends of the College to donate $80 for our 80th year to show their support for the Christ-centered, urban, and diverse, liberal arts education that Warner Pacific provides.
These donations go a long way in helping current Knights gain access to the education and create similar lifelong memories and friendships.
