Office of Church Relations

In 1968, Pepperdine College in Los Angeles announced that it had accepted an offer of 138 acres of land at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu Canyon Road in Malibu. In exchange for this gift, Pepperdine agreed to develop a new campus in the coastal community. In that same historic year, an administrative decision was made to establish an Office of Church Relations to ensure that the college would always maintain a vital relationship with Churches of Christ.

The Office of Church Relations is devoted to strengthening the ties between Pepperdine and the church through various events including the annual Harbor | Pepperdine Bible Lectures event, eSquared seminars, and other ministries on campus. The Office of Church Relations also works closely with the Religion and Philosophy Division of Seaver College and the Boone Center for the Family.




Explore various ministry opportunities for faculty, staff, and students around campus.
