To fully understand the importance of faith as part of AUHS’s mission, you must first understand the importance of faith to its co-founder, Pastor Gregory Johnson.
Pastor Johnson and his wife Kim Dang-Johnson founded AUHS in 1994 in order provide a Christ-centered source of education to underserved minorities in the Long Beach area as well as anyone who wished to receive a high-quality education in an environment that grows their faith as much as it does their knowledge.
Pastor Johnson leads a small church in the area while still maintaining his responsibilities as Co-Founder and Vice-Chair of the AUHS Board of Trustees. He participates in faith-based missions and community outreach, as well as a variety of conferences and conventions.
Pastor Johnson and Kim Dang-Johnson are both committed to advancing the university forward, while staying true to the heart of AUHS’s Christian mission and goals.
