LCU welcomes Jeffreys as Executive Vice President

Louisiana Christian University President Rick Brewer has announced the addition of Dr.
David Jeffreys to the Executive Leadership Team this semester.
Jeffreys will serve as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer. He comes to
LCU from Highland Baptist Church in New Iberia, where he served as associate pastor and
head of Highland Baptist Christian School since 2002. He recently completed a six-year
term on the LCU Board of Trustees culminating with service as Chairman of the Board in
2020.
“I am personally excited about David and Stephanie joining our team at LCU and know he
will be of extreme help to me with resource development, facilities management,
denominational relations, strategic planning and special projects,” Brewer said.
Jeffreys and his wife, Stephanie, met while students at LCU. He is a 1992 graduate in
business administration, who went on the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
where he earned a master’s degree and a doctoral in Christian Education.
“I never would have imagined 34 years ago as an incoming freshman to Louisiana College
that I would one day be called to serve as the Executive Vice President of Louisiana
Christian University,” Jeffreys said. “My wife Stephanie and I are excited about this new
opportunity to serve at our alma mater. I am looking forward to working with Dr. Rick
Brewer and the rest of the LCU faculty and staff as we seek to further God’s Kingdom
through Christian higher education.”
Jeffreys said he never planned for this, but that God made this plan.
“Just like the banner in front of Guinn Auditorium states ‘I Am Called,’” he said. “Well, I am a
perfect example. I am called to this. I’m not leaving ministry, I’m just in a new position of
ministry.”
Jeffreys said having worked on the Board of Trustees over Brewer’s first six years, he knew
the leadership ability and level of communication was excellent, and he is excited to work
alongside Brewer to continue the Lord’s work in his new role.
“I know you will rejoice with me in this leadership development at LCU,” Brewer said. “Pray
for David and Stephanie as they move and make this transition in ministry and leadership.”
