Southeast Asia Field: Dr. Donghwan (Bill) Kwon was unanimously elected to serve as Chancellor of South East Asia Nazarene Bible College (SEANBC), on 18 August 2015.
In his role, Kwon will give leadership and oversight to the academic and fiscal administration along with overseeing planning and development, and curriculum.
“Dr. Bill Kwon is an anointed, gifted, Spirit-filled leader,” shared Collin Elliott, interim Southeast Asia Field Strategy Coordinator. “As the Chancellor-elect of SEABNC, I am confident that he will propel this institution to new heights in preparing and training ministers to ‘make Christlike disciples in the nations.'”
Dr. Kwon gave the following statement after the election:
“It is my great honor to serve SEANBC as Chancellor. I began my missionary career as a seminary professor then stepped out onto the frontline mission field as a district superintendent with obedient heart. During this big transition, the Lord allowed me to have some time to reflect on what Jesus Christ wants his theological institutions to be like. I am praying that the Lord will continue to lead SEANBC to be the foundation for men and women who can, “go out and make disciples” (Matthew 28: 18-20), as He commanded. Listening to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I am humbly submitting myself to the leadership of the South East Asia field and the General Church. To God be the glory!
The Board of Regents of SEANBC offers warm thanks to David Phillips, Southeast Asia Field Strategy Coordinator, for his service as Chancellor over the last three years. David put in place administrative systems which are allowing the school to progress on better footing.
SEANBC welcomes this transition as continuing progress toward developing leaders across South East Asia who are moving into leadership roles in their respective countries and satellite campuses.
Bill will continue to serve in his assigned roles on the field in addition to serving as Chancellor. For more information on the Kwons, visit this link.
