✨ Faculty Friday ✨

Meet Dr. John DelHousaye! He is a professor in our Biblical and Theological Studies department and is also the Director of the Master of Arts in Christian Leadership program we offer here at ACU. Dr DelHousaye received his BA in English from Arizona State University, a Master of Divinity from Phoenix Seminary, and a Master of Theology and PhD in New Testament Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Dr DelHousaye came to us in the Fall of 2021 with 21 years of graduate teaching experience under his belt. He also pastors at Alhambra Beloved Community Church, an inner-city, culturally diverse church in Phoenix, AZ. Dr DelHousaye works as a Theologian in Residence at the Spiritual Formation Society of Arizona where he leads retreats and offers spiritual direction. And if that wasn’t enough, he also partners with and mentors pastors and church leaders around the state and globe through Surge Network, a ministry that exists to equip leaders to engage every member of their church as an active participant of God’s mission.

While his doctoral dissertation research centered around the historical Jesus, Dr DelHousaye has also published research in the areas of church history, the Gospels, and spiritual formation. He is so proud of his students here at ACU and loves to see the hearts they have for the Lord. He is passionate about equipping his students to continue to be faithful servants of God’s kingdom.

Dr DelHousaye is happily married to his wife Tiffany, who is the Director of the Hope Women’s Center here in Phoenix. Together they have raised 3 children, two of whom have studied with us at Arizona Christian University. Dr DelHousaye loves to find unique ways to connect with the Lord through prayer and will often pray through painting.

We are so thankful for Dr DelHousaye’s extensive ministry and teaching experience, and that the Lord brought him here to ACU. We know our students benefit greatly from his depth of knowledge.

We appreciate you, Dr. John DelHousaye!
❤️, Your Firestorm Family.

✨🌸 Spring Fling-stival Fun! 🌸✨ ACU's campus was buzzing with excitement last Wednesday as students, faculty, and staff came together to celebrate the end of the spring semester. Organized by the Campus Activity Board, this event was the perfect way to bid farewell to the semester and usher in the warmer months ahead. Students got to hold adorable baby chicks, drink creative beverages crafted by Brew Buddies, make bouquets at the mock floral market, and indulge in springtime snacks. Students played a variety of games under the new campus lights and country line-danced the night away🕺✨ Thanks for showing up, Firestorm Family! 🎉
