A conversation with Tim Perrin
Tim Perrin became the new leader of Lubbock Christian University…
LUBBOCK, Texas — Tim Perrin, president of Lubbock Christian University for seven years, is stepping down and returning to Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., where he spent 20 years in faculty and administrative roles.
Starting in August, Perrin will serve as a senior vice president at Pepperdine, working closely with the incoming president, Jim Gash. Perrin had been one of four other finalists to succeed longtime Pepperdine President Andrew Benton.
During Perrin’s tenure, Lubbock Christian launched the 2020 Vision Campaign, the largest in its history. To date, the university has raised $70 million in gifts and pledges, exceeding the victory goal of $60 million.
“We have been so very blessed to have Tim and Lucy Perrin as our president and first lady for these past seven years,” said Terry Creech, chair of the LCU Board of Trustees. “We are experiencing great momentum at the university, and Tim Perrin has a talented, seasoned team in place that is very capable of keeping the momentum going as we search for the next individual God has in mind to lead LCU.”
Perrin said: “It has been the thrill of a lifetime to serve my alma mater as president for the last seven years. Lucy and I have been privileged to have a front-row seat to see God at work here.”
