Randall Davis, President
Born in Jerome, ID, Randall Davis has spent most of his life involved in ministry and serving the church. Saved out of a church-going family in the Jesus People movement, he spent years living and studying about God, His character and His church. Randall and Diane Davis have educated youth and ministered to the church together for many years. Randall was first called to college administration as a graduate of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Illinois.
At 29, he turned down a position of president of a college start-up in Minneapolis, MN because of his limited experience in the ministry. After 25 years planting and pastoring churches both on a Montana Indian reservation and in rural Idaho, Randall & Diane decided they were ready to take on the mantel of higher-education and start a new college that would truly challenge students to think differently.
Dr. Diane Davis
Dr. Diane Davis, Randall’s wife, brings an equally passionate view for education as her husband’s passion for ministry. When she was told that her son would never learn to read due to learning disabilities, she built a school where students could be challenged to grow and learn no matter what their natural abilities. Their learning disabled son is now a professor of mathematics at a university in Texas. Diane has traveled in the U.S. and to Indonesia to teach on the power of love in education and has inspired many teachers in her carreer with her knowledge and fortitude.
ACC is the realization of the lifelong call and dreams of God in the lives of Randall and Diane Davis. After 20 years of ministry, and 15 years of administering two different Christian schools, Aletheia Christian College is the fruition of their life work.
Lori Lawson is the Director of Petrescue Bible Institute in Cairo, Egypt where she and her husband Joseph live with their two puppies Merry and Pippin. Lori began at Aletheia as a guest lecturer in 2010 and became an instant member of our ACC family. She now lectures regularly teaching her favorite topics in Old Testament studies and has added many phenomenal courses to our curriculum. Last year Lori was invited to join ACC’s Board of Directors and has been a source of vibrancy, creativity and passion at our school. Lori has a Masters Degree in Egyptology from the American University of Cairo and recently completed a second Masters in Christian Ministry from Wayland Baptist University.
