A colloquium on “Exploring Our Stream of God’s River System” begins at 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 30 and the visit concludes with the chapel talk “Godly, Competent Leaders” at 9:30 a.m. Friday, March 31. Between events, Mannoia will visit with students in various classes and meet with local pastors and leaders.

Involvement with churches and educational institutions around the world has given Mannoia an international view of the church and a passion for Christian higher education. In addition to his role with APU and various board positions with Roberts Wesleyan College, Northeastern Seminary, and Seattle Pacific University, he has held faculty positions at Holy Light Theological Seminary in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, the Asian Theological Association and the Asian Graduate School of Theology in Bangalore, India.
