I am grateful to be chosen as the sixth president of Florida College. As president, I can assure you that the college will remain firm to its foundation, allegiant to Jesus Christ, submissive to the pattern of sound teaching in the Holy Scriptures and committed to educating youth for service to God and neighbor.
-Dr. John B. Weaver
President of Florida College
As I begin my tenure as the sixth president of Florida College, I am humbled and energized by the encouragement from students, alums, and friends across the country as I lead FC into its 76th year.
As is always the case with beginnings in life, a new president starts with what endures from the past: traditions, conventions, and legacies. It’s “building on the good,” as my grandfather, James R. Cope, would often say. I will continue to emphasize the mission of the College: teaching spiritual disciplines while educating young minds, developing loyalty to God’s Word in a Christ-centered community, and leading cross-shaped lives of sacrificial service in the world. These are our most important educational values and ventures. With my presidency, the pursuit of our mission will remain the same.
I look forward to seeing you on campus.
