Ignited: To be set on fire,
to burn with intensity.

This is the calling of Asbury University — to produce students of academic excellence and spiritual vitality who impact the world, fueled with passion for the cause of Christ.

Dr. Sandra Gray, President of Asbury University

“I’ve come to start a fire on this earth... I’ve come to change everything, turn everything rightside up. How I long for it to be finished!”
— Luke 12:49 (MSG)

Asbury University is, always has been, and always will be a Christian institution, grounded in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, committed to the liberal arts, and called to equip students to go out and transform the culture in whatever fields they are called to. Our methods to deliver education will continue to change to keep pace with the changing environment, but also stay true to our Wesleyan theological distinctives and remain faithful to our mission.

As we rapidly face unprecedented challenges, extraordinary action is required. God calls us to boldly step forward, to engage and influence our culture, to be salt and light. We can only accomplish this if we expand our vision of what God can do through us.

Informed by our mission, vision and strategic plan, Asbury is embarking on the most aggressive fundraising campaign in its history. Through Ignited: The Campaign for Asbury University, we have a plan to blaze a new path for Christian higher education. Our goal is to establish an originative way of achieving academic excellence and spiritual vitality through sound stewardship of resources, innovative collaboration, and unmatched accessibility for worthy students who desire an Asbury education.

The Lord will use future generations of Asburians in ways we can’t begin to imagine. We have a God-ordained mission that has and will continue to affect eternity by forcefully advancing Christ’s Kingdom here on earth.

Thank you for investing in Asbury University students as they discover their learning is not an end in itself, but is part of their calling to shine God’s amazing grace into a deeply hurting world.

God’s Richest Blessings,

Dr. Sandra C. Gray
