Dr. Michael McKinney

Welcome to Promise Christian College!

As President of Promise Christian College and University it is my privilege to share with you the exciting opportunity of completing your theological education in the classroom or in the convenience of your office.  Since 2003, we have graduated over 145  students who are now serving as pastors, evangelists, missionaries, teachers, administrators, chaplains, and marketplace leaders.

In 2006, after celebrating 40 years of Christian ministry, the Lord put it upon my heart to take on the challenge of raising up the next generation of Christian leaders.   As I shared this vision, many qualified pastors and educators caught this vision and are now serving at Promise as professors and adjunct faculty members.  It is our privilege to pass  on what we have experienced and learned about the practical aspects of ministry to our students.

Our faculty come with not only academic credentials but they are men and women who have made an impact on their generation and now want to impart their experience, knowledge and skills into the next generation of Christian leaders.  There is no retirement in the body of Christ, only refire-ment.

We are expecting 2009 to be a great year at Promise!  Enlargement and expansion are two key words!  Our theme for 2009 is "The Journey Begins!"

Please contact our office at 626 296-7507 or 626 827-6405 and make an appointment for an academic evaluation.  You may also email us at  Before you know it, graduation time will arrive and you will be walking down that aisle with your cap and gown!

    Yours in His Harvest Field,

     Michael McKinney, Ph.D.
