Evangel Christian University of America began as the International School of Ministry in 1976. The school of ministry was originally organized and chartered by Henry A. Harbuck, Ph.D., president, and Rev. Andrew E. Starks, dean. The school served to meet the educational need of local pastors and lay ministers in Monroe, Louisiana.
In 1988 the founders reorganized Evangel into a Christian university. The school’s philosophy, objectives and programs were refocused to meet the needs of the twenty-first century adult learner. That same year Dr. Milton O. Peacock, a long time educator, became president.
In 1996 the university moved from leased facilities in downtown Monroe, moving into its own spacious facility north of town. This “breathing room,” led to much growth in Evangel’s educational opportunities. New programs were offered, and existing programs were retooled to meet the ever-changing needs of the body of Christ.
With a new century came new leadership. In 2000, Dr. Timothy G. Nance stepped up to the helm as ECUA’s new president. Dr. Nance had previously been Evangel’s academic dean for five years. Dr. Nance served Evangel well bringing much to Evangel's table until he went Home to be with the Lord on September 28, 2002. Subsequently, the Board has re-established Dr. Henry A. Harbuck as President/Chancellor.
