A Community Committed to Calling

As a result of our mission to provide whole-person education in the context of our Christian faith, our faculty and staff are known for their excellence, regardless of their responsibilities or field.

We believe God calls all of us to participate in bringing about His Kingdom in a unique and deeply personal way. We also believe in pursuing calling together. Excellent work and meaningful relationships all belong to what we call vocation. Being part of a community full of individuals engaged in the same endeavor will set you up for a lifetime of weaving calling into who you are and everything you ever do.

Be part of something meaningful. Discover and cultivate your true potential. Be part of Point Loma Nazarene University.

Faculty/Staff Perspective

Katelynn Klingaman Headshot

"I love the positive grace-filled environment. I enjoy the collaboration between departments and the sense that you are working together for a bigger purpose and reason. I love coming to work everyday, even when challenges arise because of the place PLNU is to so many."

Faculty/Staff Perspective

Esteban Trujillo Headshot

"During Spring Break Build, I get to have Dr. Brower with me, which is a pretty cool thing to have your university president working alongside you on a roof as we're constructing a church building. Seeing people from cabinet or faculty and staff rolling up their sleeves and working alongside students is great as well."

Esteban Trujillo, Chaplain/Director of Chapel Programming
