Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Allen Hester

Spiritual Life Director

I live in the San Francisco Bay area of California. I love traveling, learning about countries and cultures, helping others, and spending time with family and friends.

I look forward to connecting with students, supervisors, faculty, and staff as we grow in relationship with God and one another.


I have served in Christian education for over 20 years in various roles. I have been blessed to serve in California, South Korea, Florida, and South Carolina. I have served as a teacher, chaplain, discipleship leader, mentor, missions educator, and mission trip leader.

I have participated in many professional development opportunities throughout the years. I have also completed some ESL training online. In addition, I am involved in an on-going ministry training program through my church.
